In 2012 I was handed over my first chromebook and since then I have been fortunate enough to test and trial every chrome device. In those two years chromebooks have come a long way, from a matt finish screen and a plastic looks to touch screen Acers with Intel i3 processor and not to forget the epitome of chromebooks Google Pixel.
One thing all these two years the constant message to OEM’s as an enterprise customer to have 13″ device, good quality built and better processing power. To my delight Dell was the first one to confirm in the beginning of this year shared the plan of the device which released. Since then I have been eagerly waiting for this device as it was kind a of device any enterprise can easily adopt without compromising on the quality.
The device looks beautiful with carbon finish, options of touch screen.
The variants released by Dell 13.3″ Chrome book:
Processors: Celeron, Core i3, Core i5
Memory: 2GB, 4GB, and even 8GB
Storage: 16Gb or 32GB
Touchscreen: Yes and no
The standardisation of ports by Google has made enterprise IT team procurement and planning more simple, as we all know every device may have its own ports which means different cable for every device. If your organisation is planning activity based working model then standardisation of ports is a blessing in disguise. It is a simple thing but not only saves money but also stress and complication for IT management team.
We will wait for the release date in Australia and the price of course. We have seen the prices are always on a higher side with chromebook due to low demand in Australia.This device could change that thinking as more and more enterprises are now looking for a fresh options. Microsoft has been ruling our desks from many years its time for a change and in some instances people want a change.
I strongly recommend to try a chrome book if you answer “Internet Browser” in the following question:
Which application you spend your maximum time during the day on your computer?
1. Microsoft Word
2. Internet Browser (Firefox, Chrome, Internet Explorer)
3. Microsoft Excel
I will run a poll on Google+ profile.
