Dell Inspiron 14 hands-on: A powerful 2-in-1 Chromebook that’s not just for school

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.

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.

[Update x2: Even more models] Chromebooks from ASUS, Acer, Lenovo, Dell, and others get the Play Store

It's taking a while, but Google is delivering on its promise to add the Play Store to all Chromebooks made in 2017 and beyond. Over a dozen models received Android app support this summer, but only in the Chrome OS Beta Channel.

After dabbling in Android tablets for years, Dell is finally throwing in the towel on Google's mobile OS. The company won't be making any more Android tablets, and it's ending update support for the Venue tablets that already exist. That's a bummer for anyone holding out hope that the Venue 8 would make it to Android 6.0.

Dell Drops The Venue 8 7000 Series Tablet Price To $200 For 16GB And $250 For 32GB ($200 Off Original Price)

Last year Dell introduced the Venue 8 7000 series (AKA the 7840), one of the most unique tablets on the market. Its super-slim case and bezels make it look more than a little striking, and the Intel RealSense cameras on the back are something that no other Android device can boast. The design isn't without its problems, as mentioned in Ryan Whitwam's review - one of the biggest pitfalls of the product was the high price for an 8-inch device, which launched at $400 for the 16GB base model. If you've been admiring the design but balking at the price, the Venue 8 7000 now has a steep discount.
