“In the early days of Chromebooks, most were low-priced plasticky devices. There’s charm to that, but there are also premium users who want to have a better device,” Sheth said. “The Pixel is the best Chromebook out there. This Dell is going to be easily the second best and at a much more affordable price.”  –  The Dell Chromebook 13 starts at $399 for a laptop with a metal exterior, carbon fiber cover, 13-inch 1,920×1,080 screen, Intel Celeron processor, 2 gigabytes of memory and 16GB of storage. Prices range up to $899 for models with touch screens and more powerful brains. For full details, check out my colleague Dan Ackerman’s look at the Dell Chromebook 13.
