Expert Reviews

What reviewers liked

While there's nothing amazing or unique about the Dell Chromebook 11 on paper, it packs unparalleled battery life for Chrome OS machines.
But the Dell soldiers on, putting up impressive battery life to go along with its speed and hardware.
It has loud, clear speakers for watching short clips or presentations.

What reviewers didn't like

It's a noticeable tint that makes every photo look cooler than it actually is, and it's even noticeable on most white backgrounds.
It’s practically useless without an internet connection and you’ll have to learn to live your digital life in the cloud: the 16GB of storage in the Dell doesn’t offer much room for anything in terms of media.
It has a wide footprint, which serves to get in the way of typing, as you have to make sure you don’t bump it with the underside of your hands or thumbs.
