If you are in the market for a Chromebook, head over to the Dell website to check out the deal on the Dell Chromebook 11. Right now they have it on sale for $269 which is $272 in savings off of the regular price. This isn’t a stripped down version of it either. It comes with an Intel i3 processor, 4GB of RAM and 16GB of storage with all the easy-of-use and security that comes with Chrome OS.
As the name suggests, this Chromebook has an 11.6″ display with a 1366 x 768 resolution so while it is not an HD, the crisp LCD display should still make it easy for hours of viewing. You can of course connect an external monitor via the built-in HDMI port for more comfortable viewing. You can also expect to get about 7 hours of battery life on a full charge.
The big news on this sale however is the processor and RAM. Generally to get a Chromebook with an i3 processor and 4GB of RAM will start out above $300. While Chrome OS is lightweight and efficient, like any operating system, the more processor and RAM you can throw at it, the better the performance. As an almost fully dedicated user of Chrome OS in my day-to-day, I can tell you
that having 4GB of RAM makes all the difference in the world for the platform.
There is no word from Dell on when this sale will end and with orders already taking 8-10 days to ship, supplies are likely limited. If you want to get one of these you probably should jump on it soon. You will be hard pressed to find a better deal right now.
