The Dell Chromebook 11 CB1C13 Review

The dell chromebook 11 cb1c13 is the best Dell Chromebook we've tested yet, with plenty of power to handle tab after tab of web browsing and more than 10 hours of battery life. It's still aimed mainly at the education market, though anyone who needs a reliable laptop for work or play will appreciate it.

Like the previous Dell Chromebook 11, this one is a stylish and compact machine. Its dark gray (almost black) color scheme looks conservative compared to the flashy colors on Samsung Chromebook 2 laptops and brighter HP Stream models, but some people may prefer its simple look. The Dell and Chrome logos on the top of the laptop's lid add a splash of color to the otherwise matte plastic chassis.

Inside, the Dell Chromebook 11 has a 11.6-inch display with an HD resolution of 1366 x 768 pixels. This screen is decent for watching videos and perusing Twitter or Reddit, but it can't match the sharpness of higher-resolution displays on competing models.

The Dell Chromebook 11 also has a fast Intel Core i3 processor that helps this machine run apps and web browsers smoothly. It also has 4GB of RAM, which should be enough to handle light multitasking. However, the Dell Chromebook 11 has just 16GB of internal storage. That means you'll likely want to offload your media to the cloud. Fortunately, this laptop comes with Google Drive integration built right into the system. The keyboard has chiclet keys that have a quiet but satisfying click and feel sturdy. It has a layout similar to Windows keyboards, with buttons for previous/next page in the browser and full-screen mode across the top, a search key where Caps Lock usually lives, and directional arrow keys down the left side.
