In 2013, the company Dell, like other major equipment manufacturers showed their vision Chromebooks – Chromebook 11. For all this time managed to line a few times, and even upgrade to get the device on Intel Core i3. Everything was good, but a powerful solution was not very energy efficient, so the other day, Americans have shown a new laptop Chrome OS – the same 11-inch, but with Intel Bay Trail.
The novelty has received a 11.6-inch screen with a resolution of 1366 x 768 pixels, which, depending on the configuration and can be even touch. The processor is Intel Celeron N2840 and comes paired with 2 GB and 4 GB of RAM. Own Memory Chromebook total of 16 GB, but the bulk of the work takes place in the “cloud”, so some problems due to the small store you will hardly feel.
Dell also focuses on technology MIL-STD 810G, so you can not be afraid to throw the bag with this laptop (within reason, of course) and use it in extreme temperatures (researchers craters of active volcanoes should appreciate this feature). Due to the nature of fastening device can be opened 180 degrees.
In Dell is well aware that Chromebooks – a very niche solutions, therefore submitted the exact same laptop, but running Windows 8.1. It has exactly the same features and differ only in the higher price, which is quite logical. The initial version of the Dell Latitude 11 Education Series (namely the so-called Windows-version) will sell for $ 299. Chromebook cost 11 to 50 dollars lower – 249. By the way, because of the prefix «Education Series», we can conclude that this device is intended primarily for educational institutions or students. Sales Chromebook 11 and Latitude 11 will start already on March 3, but with a touchscreen version appeared a little much later – somewhere in July.
