  • The Dell Chromebook 11 is an affordable 11-inch Chrome OS laptop that offers excellent battery life, good overall performance, and a durable construction.


  • The Dell Chromebook 11 with Core i3 processor delivers speedy performance and lasts all day on a charge.


  • The Dell Chromebook 11 Touch is more rugged and less expensive than before, but it sacrifices some performance that made the old Dell Chromebook 11 great.


  • The affordable Dell Chromebook 11 Touch has a touch screen and a beefy, rugged design making it a good choice for classrooms.


  • The Dell Chromebook 11 with Core i3 processor delivers speedy performance and lasts all day on a charge.


  • The Dell Chromebook 11 Touch is more rugged and less expensive than before, but it sacrifices some performance that made the old Dell Chromebook 11 great.


  • The Dell Inspiron 15 7000 is a 2-in-1 that offers solid performance in a premium soft-touch design, but its screen isn't good enough for the price.


  • While its specifications look great on paper, this Inspiron is marred by mediocre performance and an unfortunate as-tested price.


  • Go for this 15.6-inch notebook only if you don’t want a number pad, and will be using it mostly on a desk with a mouse attached.


  • The entry-level Dell Inspiron 11 3000 Series 2-in-1 (3147) proves that you don't have to compromise if you want a convertible-hybrid laptop that lasts all day and fully utilizes its touch screen.


  •   The Inspiron 11 3000 is one of the most affordable 2-in-1 hybrids on the market. We like the handsome and sturdy silver design, which flips easily into tablet, stand or tent mode. The Inspiron 11 3000 also offers longer battery life than its low-cost competitors, as well as punchy speakers. The only notable drawbacks are the finicky touchpad and awkward power button placement.


  • Dell's 2-in-1 is an inexpensive proposition if you're after a dual-purpose device. It's easy to use it as a tablet, just by tilting the screen all the way back around the unit, and it does the job well enough as a laptop. Just don't expect a lot of speed out it since it's based on an Intel Celeron CPU.


  • The latest Dell Inspiron 15 is an incredibly affordable desktop-replacement laptop offering good battery life and a slim profile.


  • - We received the lower-end configuration for review, and frankly, we can't get over its terrible 1366x768 screen resolution.
    - Lateral viewing angles are good, but the problem is that the glass is incredibly reflective so it's really hard to see anything at an angle except in room without any lights shining near the device.
    - You're saddled with an unfortunate low-res screen either way, so the particular variant that we've tested today comes out looking a bit unappealing.
