Chrome OS devices also run Android, or at least a big enough chunk of Android's base to get apps running alongside Chrome's browser tabs. But you might not have given much thought to exactly what version of Android your Chromebook uses. After all, it's not immediately relevant for most of a Chrome OS device's functions: that's handled by the larger Chrome OS, which is frequently updated by Google along with the browser. Read More
The demand for Chromebooks has skyrocketed over the last year thanks to the global pandemic with so many people working and studying from home. Unfortunately, not everyone has the privilege to rely on a stable Wi-Fi connection, which can be catastrophic for kids in remote learning environments. That's where Dell wants to come in with its new Chromebook 3100, its first education-focused Chrome OS machine to come with an optional mobile network connection. Read More
Dell has been producing Chromebooks for years, though most of them have been focused on corporate deployments rather than use by individuals. Today the company revealed its new Latitude 7410 Chromebook Enterprise lineup, which includes a traditional laptop and a 2-in-1. Like the majority of Dell's Chromebooks, they are being targeted at business use, but will also be available through direct sales channels. Read More
If the Samsung Chromebook deal we covered earlier this week was still a bit too pricey for your liking, another more affordable option has just come across our digital desk. From now through the end of today, you can pick up a brand new Dell 2-in-1 11.6" Chromebook for just $169 ($100 off) at Best Buy. Read More
We reviewed the Dell Inspiron Chromebook 14 2-in-1 last year, and while it's a bit bulkier than the average Chromebook, it's incredibly well-built and offers a great Chrome OS experience. Now you can buy it for just $349.00 from Best Buy, a savings of $200 from the original MSRP. Read More
It can be hard to find a larger Chromebook with good specifications, but the Dell Inspiron Chromebook 14 fills that niche. We reviewed the Inspiron Chromebook 14 back when it was released and found it to be a very competent offering for the most part. One of our main qualms, the $599 price tag, has been addressed with this deal; the $399 figure that Best Buy is offering is $200 under the launch price and $150 less than current MSRP. Read More
For reasons unknown to me, most Chromebooks larger than 13 inches usually have extremely low-end hardware. The 14-inch Asus Chromebook C423 has a dreadful Intel Celeron N3350 processor, and the Acer Chromebook 15 has a slightly better Pentium N4200 CPU. If you've been waiting for a big Chromebook with decent hardware, Dell might have the laptop for you.
The 'Inspiron Chromebook 14 2-in-1' is pricier than most other large Chrome OS laptops, with an MSRP of $599, but it also has the hardware to justify that price — a latest-gen Intel Core i3 processor, a 14-inch 1080p IPS screen, 4GB of memory, and a backlit keyboard. Read More
Thanks to the IFA 2018 trade show in Berlin last week, we now have several new Chrome OS options available to us. Lenovo announced three different Chromebooks, including a higher-end model with a 4K screen that Ryan took a closer look at, and Acer unveiled a follow-up to its popular Chromebook 14, although I wasn’t overly impressed by the quality of the pre-production hardware I got my hands on.
Until now, Dell hasn’t shown much interest in the consumer Chromebook space, choosing instead to focus on the education market. It would appear that the company is ready to change that with the introduction of a brand new model. Read More
When I see the name "Dell," I always think: practical, reliable, affordable, and probably looks like a tank. This new Dell Inspiron Chromebook, however, aims to change that just a little bit by adding premium features to the company's line-up of Chrome OS laptops. Read More
There are plenty of options for controlling your phone using a PC. You can use your PC's mouse and keyboard as input devices (like with DeskDock), or have your phone's screen displayed as a window (like with TeamViewer or Vysor). Partnered with Screenovate Technologies, Dell has built its own screen mirroring tool for select Dell and Alienware PCs, called 'Mobile Connect.' Read More
