Laptop starter-kit this is not.
This past week Dell launched their new Chromebook 13, a ChromeOS-powered laptop with a 1080 p, 13″-inch screen and a host of excellent features, Gizmodo wrote recently in their review of the new machine.
The Chromebook 13 offers several different options for processors (Celeron, Corei3, Corei5), memory (2GB, 4GB and 8GB), storage (16GB or 32 GB) and even comes in touchscreen and non-touchscreen models.
The latpop’s biggest selling points for the laptop are its “build quality” and the machine’s IPS LCD screen.
The two most noticeable attributes of the new Dell Chromebook are its solid build quality and that screen.
The laptop also features a USB 3.0 port and a USB 2.0 port, as well as an HDMI port.
Also of note in the laptop’s list of features are its metal components. The palm rests on the top of the laptop are made from magnesium alloy. The underside of the laptop is cased in aluminum. Chromebook 13’s added metal accents have bumped the laptop’s weight up to 3.2 to 3.5 lbs, depending on the features chosen.
Dell featured the new laptop in a press release this past Thursday. The computer manufacturer emphasized the product’s “sleek design,” its performance and even said the laptop’s operating system (ChromeOS) is the “ultimate business-ready solution.”
The Weather Company’s tech boss Nicholas Gardner was quoted as endorsing the Chromebook 13, saying the laptop is a fitting machine for “a high-paced environment like The Weather Channel.”
The Dell Chromebook 113 we’ve been testing has provided us with a secure, powerful and easy to manage device that we can use both in the office and on location.
The laptop provides business users and leisure users a middle ground between the relatively simple Chromebooks Google released in 2011 and the company’s release Pixel, a souped-up laptop that costs about $1,000.
Dell’s Chromebook 13 begins at $400, rising in price depending on the memory, processor, storage and touchscreen options the buyer chooses.
