Dell also joins the Chrome OS bandwagon launches Chromebook 11

Microsoft’s nightmare continues as more and more partners are joining the Google club. Dell has announced its first Chromebook which is powered by Google’s Linux-based “open source” operating system Chrome OS.

Dell is pushing the laptop to a market that Microsoft would cringe to continue to own, which is slipping out of its hands.

Neil Hand, vice president, Tablet and Performance PC Group, Dell, says, “The Dell Chromebook 11 will give schools and districts another tool to consider as they plan their digital content and curriculum strategies, and its competitive pricing will help open access to technology for more students around the country.”

The hardware
The Dell Chromebook 11 is powered by 4th Generation Intel Celeron 2955U processor, features a 11.6-inch, edge-to-edge glass screen (maximum resolution of 1366×768) and is powered by Intel HD Graphics and can run for up to 10-hours on  battery.

Since all Chrome OS devices are targeted at cloud, they don’t come with a lot of built-in storage. Chromebook 11 is no exception. It comes with 16GB embedded Solid State Drive to facilitate a fast boot-time of under 8.4 seconds. However one can use external Flash Drives to expand the storage.

Dell is offering two models – one which includes 4GB of internal DDR3 RAM, and the other which includes 2GB of RAM.

This announcement from Dell puts the company in the club of other traditional Microsoft players who are now moving to Linux-based Chrome OS.
