Ranked in these QuestionsQuestion Ranking
Pro Intel Core i3 and 4GB RAM
With the 4GB RAM and an i3 processor this is frankly the best internals to date for a Chromebook other than the 1,299.99 Pixel.
Pro Real world battery life of 9 hours
In real world testing the battery lasted over 9 hours, which is pretty close to the manufacturer stated 10 hours.
Pro Able to replace Chrome OS with a full Linux install
With the combination of SeaBios and the CPU used inside of the Dell Chromebook 11, users can install Linux fully on the hard drive, replacing Chrome OS.
Con Non user replaceable SSD
The SSD is glued on the motherboard making it impossible to remove and replace meaning that no upgrades of the SSD will be possible on this device.
Con Dim 720p screen
Like a lot of Chromebooks the Dell Chromebook 11 has a low res 720p screen but also sadly is a bit dimmer than other comparable models.
Con Includes a fan
The Dell Chromebook 11 (with Core i3) does have fans inside of its case, that means moving parts and noise.
Con Small storage
In comparison to the same spec'd and priced Acer C720-3404, to see that this device only has half the storage at 16gb instead of 32gb is a bit of a let down.
