    Awesome Battery Life!

    The Dell Inspiron Chromebook is an awesome laptop, mostly due to its large 14" screen, combined with a 10 hour battery life. That means you can spend plenty of time watching videos, writing, drawing, and doing other work, without worrying about the computer running out of juice. This can be especially valuable as a work computer, as it won't run out of power in a typical 8 hour day. Do keep in mind that the 10-hour battery is dependent on the amount of use and power drain. Using Bluetooth speakers, or having your brightness all the way up will reduce your battery time. This Chromebook starts up almost immediately, meaning you can get right to work, even at a moments notice. The backlit keyboard is also great, meaning that even if you are in a lecture or presentation with little or no lighting, you can still see the keys as you type. The pen that is included is awesome for taking notes or drawing, and it fits away in a compartment in the computer itself, so everything is self-contained. As with all Chromebooks, the Dell Inspiron Chromebook has access to the Google Play library, meaning that virtually any apps (or games) you use on your phone, will translate over to this device. This is includes Google Play books, which means you can use this as an eBook reader as well, but when using it as an eBook reader, I typically set it in front of me, as it is a bit heavy to hold for evening reading.

    The chromebook is fast with a great display. It is so satisfying to use, that I've voluntarily abandoned my windows laptop. A quality build and incredible battery life. My only gripe is that the chromebook is a bit on the heavy side, but the weight probably contributes to it's quality feel.

    Top Notch Chromebook (and tablet!)

    My current Chromebook is about 3 years old and the battery health has started to fade so I was really looking forward to an upgrade. This Dell Chromebook is exactly what I was looking for. Pros: - The keyboard is back-lit, allowing for dark room typing. - The screen easily rotates around and turns it from a laptop to a tablet. Most apps I use on regular tablets are compatible and the touch screen was very responsive. - 4GB of RAM and an i3 processor give you all the power you need. In tablet mode, games I've played on my tablet like Plants vs. Zombies run much better. - The power cord has a convenient LED light so it is easy to find when you are looking to plug in for a charge. - You have FULL access to the regular Google Play store and all the apps within. Most older Chromebooks limit the apps you can access. - Excellent battery life. - Fast boot up times, automatic updates, and no worry virus protection. Cons: - It's a little heavy for a Chromebook. But that is a decent sacrifice for the screen size, battery life, and power. - It'sn't easy to open. While the design is sleek, it takes a little bit of effort to pry the lid open. You basically need to force your fingers in between to create a gap that will allow you to lift up the screen when the lid is closed. This was a poor design choice. I'm a big fan of Chromebooks and have switched from Windows laptops for several years now. This model is a great option for anyone looking to simplify their computing experience.

    Fast Computer that Meets Most User Needs

    To put this in perspective, I am a longtime PC user. I have mostly used Windows but I am also familiar with MacOS. On the tablet side, I have used both IOS and Android. I have also dabbled some with Chromebooks but that was before they began merging Android apps with the Chrome operating system. This Dell has a bright 14 inch touch display and runs the latest version of the Chrome operating system. It has an i3 processor, 4GB ram, a 128GB ssd, a lighted keyboard, an included pen, and excellent battery life. In light use, I was able to get approximately two days of use between charges. Because it uses the latest version of Chrome, it is able to access the Google Play Store and utilize the Android apps. I found this very useful since almost all of the apps that I was used to running on my Android tablet worked well on the Chromebook. The combination of the these apps and a full desktop web browser with access to Google Docs and other Google goodies makes this a very powerful and easy to use computer for most of my needs. The included pen was also very useful for annotations on web pages, etc. In summary, if you do not need to run Windows I would highly recommend this Chromebook. It is very fast, easy to use, has with long battery life, and meets most people's computer needs.

    Slim, Attractive Hardware and Fast Performance

    Specs: 8th Gen i3- 8130u 2 core 4 thread processor 14-inch FHD thin bezel display 4gb of Ram 128gb of Storage Micro SD slot, x2 USB Type C port with charging capabilities on both ports and 1 USB A 3.0 full-size port. All around aluminum build that feels solid EMR Pen Backlit Keyboard Chrome OS The first impression out of the box is a good one. It's compact, feels solid and small footprint that makes it a very portable device. The touch display is pretty good it's bright, colorful and with minimal bezels. Speakers can get loud and clear too. Good display and speakers make it a good media consuming device. Dell also includes a pen that is located on the bottom panel with his own storage compartment. Writing notes or drawing with the pen is a good experience with minimal lag. WiFi and Bluetooth have been solid and fast. Performance is night and day compared to my old Chromebook with a low-end Intel Core Duo chip. With just having more than 6+ tabs open on Chrome browser with one of them playing YouTube music on the background it would start to slow down. The 8th gen i3 is a speedy processor that performs just as well as the previous 7th gen i5 U processor. The only bottleneck I can see would be the 4gb of ram. But for now, Chrome OS has done a good job when it comes to ram management. Another area that I noticed improvements is when playing demanding 3D games from the Google Play Store. My daughter likes to play Roblox on my Chromebook. On some of the levels, the GPU would struggle and gameplay would just slow down to a crawl. With the Intel UHD 620 GPU, it's been a smooth performer when it comes to gaming. Battery life is pretty good getting around 6-8 hours of mixed usage. For I/O ports you get 2 USB Type C ports that are used to charge the device. You also get a full-size USB 3.0 port along with a micro sd slot. The charging brick is very small and lightweight with an led light at the end of the cable to provide some light. The backlit keyboard is decent but I would of like a little bit more of deep travel and feedback. The trackpad area is a good size with a smooth surface. There is no individual buttons the trackpad itself is clickable. Overall the Dell 14 Chromebook 2 in 1 is a well built high-end device that can compete with other Chromebooks around this price range. You get a good display, processor, pen support and 128gb of storage. It's a solid pick up that won't leave you disappointed.

    Solid build. Very good quality

    First, I don't believe in Intel processor without a fan... The CPU getting hot is a normal thing that is caused by the processing load. In normal fashion Computers, the heat is controlled by either a mechanical fan or a water-cooled system. This laptop is equipped with Intel Core i3 (8th generation) processor that is handling Chrome OS in a very good way. Android apps are also running without glitches (the apps I mainly use). Booting time is fast (normal for chrome book). Linux is in BETA. It is working fine though (I use LibreOffice under Linux). It has only 4Gb of RAM. I wish it has 8Gb... Even though, I tried to stress it with many apps and several tabs and didn't notice any severe lagging. Just doing fine. Built-in camera is very good. Good enough for Skype, Hangouts and any online video communication... Battery charger is the way I like it: In line power adapter. It is a USB type-C connector with small LED indicator on the plug. Wires are long enough and it charges really fast. The Inspiron has 2 USB type-C connectors, one regular USB, Micro SD card slot and Headphone jack. I wish it has the comprehensive HDMI connector. It would make life easier. The laptop (chromebook) build is very good but kid of heavy when compared to other available chromebooks. Screen is ok! Colors are not as vivid as you see on some others but it is eyes friendly display. Typing with the keyboard is just good. There is no noisy click and still enough feedback. Back-light is obvious... Sound quality is ok! Kind of loud. Louder than I need any ways. . Battery life is very good. Way better than some other chromebooks I have/had. Touch pad is ok. Not the glass one but it is working very good. WiFi signal: Well, I'd say average. No real issues so far! Like no random disconnect or anything like that but Let's say it could be better. Maybe the WiFi indicator is deceiving. I am literally 4 feet from the WiFi router and it shows that signal is medium. I tried to go reasonably farther from the router and it remains connected. Touch screen? I am not a big fan of any laptop with touch screen... I use it occasionally for quick scrolling or browsing. It is just doing the job. I just love the gestures of Chrome OS tracking pad. I wish it can be applied to other Operating Systems... This Chromebook with indeed give you the first impression of: WOW when you will get it. I can guarantee that.

    Premium Chromebook

    My family is a fan of Chromebooks because they turn on fast and they rarely have glitches. This Premium 2-in-1 Dell Inspiron Chromebook has quickly become a favorite device as it is small enough to take on-the-go and it can be turned into a tablet. The gray metal design makes this laptop appear nice, sleek, and it feels solid. The active pen that comes with this Chromebook is simple to use, and it has its storage compartment under keyboard which makes it easy to keep the pen in one place. Furthermore, the battery life lasts a long time, which is what makes this device suitable for travel. The size of the keypad is big enough to allow movement of the pointer, and it is not bothersome as the texture is smooth. I like that the keys don't feel cramped which makes typing comfortable. The best feature is the Full HD touchscreen; it is bright and with fantastic resolution. The speakers are along the bottom edges of the laptop, hidden, but it still does sound great. The sound is clear, efficient and quality are great. The thing that makes this 2-in-1 Chromebook the function is the ability to switch between a keyboard laptop into a tablet quickly. This laptop functions without a cooling fan thanks to its fast 8th generation Intel core processor. It does not overheat even after using it for a prolonged time. It weighs a bit more compared to the other Chromebooks, but it is still acceptable for mobility. This Dell 2-in-1 design sets it apart from other laptops. It is a premium Chromebook that I enjoy using.

    Metallic construction and glass covered screen makes it look and feel more expensive than it really is. Boots up really fast. Long battery life. @@@@@@@@ about 10 hours on medium brightness). Reasonably light for a 14 inch 2-in-1 laptop/tablet. Backlit keyboard. Runs Android games and apps. Includes stylus. Excellent device for multimedia entertainment. Two USB 3.1 Type C ports than can also be used for charging. Small AC adapter. Snappy 8th gen Intel Core I3 SoC and eMMC storage. Quiet and doesn't get hot. Cons: some backlight bleeding in dark environments. Glass on screen is a fingerprint magnet and prone to glare and reflections. No HDMI (minor complaint as the USB-C ports can be used for external display connection @@@@@@@

    My whole family loves this Dell Chromebook! It is definitely not what you think of when you hear Chromebook and that is a good thing. My daughter has a chromebook that does the basics, but this goes above and beyond. First of all, the setup was very easy to do. We also love how quickly it charges and how long it keeps the charge. We haven't timed how long the charge has been, but we haven't had to charge it for it for a while. We love how quickly the chromebook loads up, especially the kids as they seem to have less patience. The display on this Dell Chromebook is also very impressive. We love watching netflix at night on this and the picture is very nice. My kids have used it to do schoolwork on it and I have used it to do some work related jobs. This Dell Chromebook is a 2-in1, so having that option is great. At 14", once you flip it to a tablet, it isn't too cumbersome. When I have used it for work, I have also enjoyed having the option of using the stylus that comes with this Chromebook. Make sure you look under the chromebook to find the stylus. My wife uses the chromebook at night and she loves that the keyboard lights up really nice. The only complaint that we have about this chromebook, which isn't too bad, is that it only has one usb port. Overall, we are highly pleased with this Dell Chromebook. So if you are looking for an upgrade on your old Chromebook, consider this Dell as a great option.

    I only use this Dell 2-1 14" Chromebook for - All Things in the Google Universe (ecosystem), some other Play Store apps, social, internet, internet, internet and a writing app. I'm not doing 3-D modeling or heavy photoshop. Do I wish I had more money and purchased a Pixel Slate with an i5 or 17 and more memory, yes. This is 4 pounds and the keyboard if stuck to it. I would prefer something 2 lbs or under with a detachable keyboard and a faster processor for when I use demanding apps. So far however I've not had any issue. The outdated i3 processor is doing everything fast I've asked of it. I keep multiple applications open and 25 tabs without a hint of delay. Next time step up and spend some more coin, plus I had 10 minutes to decide as Best Buy was closing, I was in a hurry...After spending thousands on a mac (they have less expensive ones) this is great, just without Garageband, etc. I use the heck out of this and it has worked very well except the wifi range isn't spectacular, however I've an old single band router and an only one slow internet with poor maintenance and at 12mbps - in the middle of the desert. The battery life is excellent. I'm looking forward to a tablet in the future that does not have a fan, still stays cool and with a faster processor. I was told because this was solid state and did not have a fan, I must have misunderstood, it has a fan. Things with hinges will fail. For the money it is so far so good. It was "on sale", isn't everything? I think some people who hate Windows like me, who like the Google cloud concept, and love the way this syncs to an android phone will like this set-up. It is like my mac before cat hair killed it and how it synced with my iphone, but less money. If I wasn't addicted to a stylus of the Note line of phones I might still have an iphone and I would have looked at ipads. This will help with my closeted wanna be writer ambition, research and most internet everything. It is fast for the things I do and boots up fast like a SSD should. Interactions are instant between Google apps. If you are in this price range (on sale only; It was $150 less), aren't doing things that require a high end processor, don't mind the 4 lbs and think 14" then maybe? If you have more coin and demand more from a device then step up I suppose. I've had this less than a month so time might change my opinion. If I had more time to choose and think about it I would have spent more, gone lighter, leaner and more powerful$

    Surprisingly fast and very able

    I was skeptical when I saw that it is an i3 with only 4gb of memory-- however, it is a legit laptop on its own. I don't have much experience with Chromebooks until this one, but I do have android devices-- I have the pixel 3 and the original pixel, and two android tablets, so the google system is not new to me. I also have multiple laptops-- 8th gen i7s with 16gb memory PCs. This machine can compete with regular laptops. First of all, it is fast-- since chromebooks are like mobile devices on a laptop platform, it is like "over equipping" a machine. Chromebooks are app-based like android mobile devices. So it is not resource hungry. That i3 and 4gb memory is more than enough to run this machine. I open up the flap and it hardly needs any start up time-- it is right in your face ready to be used! Since it is a chromebook, I just sign in to my google account and everything I need is there-- my google sheet files , google docs, my keep notes, even my regular browsing data to pull up easily. On this chromebook, I won't need MS office-- unless I'm a very old school user. everything is on the internet and this device brings it all to me. You know what's really good though? I cannot drain the battery at all! On my high-end PC, after 3 hours of use, I need to be mindful of my battery life. In this chromebook, I don't have to worry about battery-- I was switching from youtube tabs on the browser while I browse social media and was researching some items for 3 hours-- the battery meter has not even depleted a bit. It's like sorcery on a man-made machine. Like I said, these things you can do on a mobile phone, or a tablet-- but having the convenience of a dedicated keyboard, a good-sized screen (I mean 14 inches?? @@@@@@@ , I think this is more than enough for regular users. Given that, it is a little bit on the heavy side. For what it can do, it is a little "over equipped"-- but I'm not complaining. It can be something you can carry around with you to get work done, without overspending on power machines. I have not used it for photo editing or gaming-- I think chromebooks are for light to regular users of daily tasks and I think emails, browsing, watching movies and such; this machine is more than ample. Oh, the speakers by the way are not that great-- it can be tingy-- but don't we all have headphones somewhere? -- and those work just fine, like any other laptop. I think this should be a staple for college students.

    First Chromebook, Quite Impressed

    This was my first Chromebook and I'm quite impressed. I'd played around on display Chromebooks a few times and my kids use them at school and love them, but I'd never owned one. I didn't have a good impression from the display models, but having this one for my own has completely changed my mind. I don't do any heavy computing at home, so the "Browser as an Operating System" thing is working great for me. I already used the Chrome Browser so there was zero learning curve there. There's a little with notifications and those things, but nothing that will bother you. Setup was quick. Connect to Wi-Fi and sign in with your Google account. A few questions and you're going. It imported my Chrome bookmarks and extensions and I was off. Took no more than 5 minutes. Maybe less, to be honest. Some extensions are designed for Windows only, as I found out. I've one that syncs my bookmarks to Safari on my iPhone (don't judge, Googlers) and it doesn't work. But every other one did. The biggest thing that has impressed is that it loads fast and operates fast. This model has a Core i3 and I'm sure that's making a difference, coupled with the SSD. Spend a little extra ad get a good processer and enough RAM like you would for any computer. There's just never any lag for anything. And those things coupled with the high speed internet at home provide a great experience. Battery life is off the charts compared to a Windows or Mac computer. After the initial charge, in 3 weeks I've only charged it twice. I hibernate my windows laptops to save the battery. I'ven't turned this Chromebook off yet. It's awesome because it's truly always available to me. The things that I hate doing on my phone or would rather do on a computer than a tablet I do right away now. I've totally stopped going for my iPads. They're just toys for the kids now. Android apps are now available on Chromebooks and I thought that was a gimmick. I couldn't understand the point. Now I do. Apps like Snapchat that don't have a web version you can use on the computer. Or apps that you like the app interface version better than the web version. Or if you don't want to be in Facebook but want to use Messenger, you can do that. They're also available offline when the web versions aren't. Clearly to use them to their fullest you need to be online, but some apps have offline functions or things that you can still do offline. I family overseas that uses Facebook Messenger/Viber/WhatsApp and I don't need to grab my phone or use the web version (Which I don't like). One word of caution. Installing apps and having offline data makes this much more like a regular computer, so the lower SSD sizes on Chromebooks could become a problem as time goes on. Right now it's not, but I can see that coming. This is not a computer that I will store my photos and things like that on, so it will never be a problem for me. But I did want to throw out that thought in case someone might use it differently and store more. This is one of the longest reviews that I've written in a while and might actually be the longest I've ever written, so I hope that people have read through it all. I'm really impressed with this Chromebook and use it a lot, and I enjoy using it. I highly recommend it.

    Dell Inspiron 2-In-1 14" Touch-Screen Chromebook - Urban Gray Model: C7486-3250GRY-PUS SKU: 6299820 UNBOXING and PRESENTATION I really wanted for this to be something special from Dell since this is their first premium Chromebook, but you get the standard Dell treatment. Nothing spectacular. just a brown box with plastic bags protecting the finishes. It seems Dell has the same packaging for you whether you spend $300 with them or $3,000. In the box you find the charging brick, the Chromebook, some instruction manuals, and plastic with your cardboard. I was immediately struck by how solidly built this is though! It has some heft to it. More to follow. - BUILD, PERFORMANCE, and DESIGN This is Dell's 1st premium Chromebook and they did well for their first build. It's beautifully designed and follows the Inspiron design language. I'd say this is better construction than the XPS line. Here you get a beautiful matte gun metal gray hefty aluminum chassis and you can tell when you pick it up. It tips the scale at almost 4lbs which may be a deal breaker for some users. Chromebooks are very light in this price range. I found it a bit heavy to take with me after I have used my PixelBook. There are some sharp lines that take away from the overall feel of the device in your hands, but otherwise perfect. The processor is top notch not a Pentium or Celeron chip. You get an air cooled 2.2GHz 8th-gen IntelR CoreT i3-8130U chip. That means efficiency and performance BOTH! With 4GB you have plenty for productivity, gaming, streaming, etc all while multitasking like a boss. If you are buying this to run a bunch if Linux applications you may want to get a model with more RAM. Wireless performance is great. It supports up to AC wireless. Connections are solid and speedy. I feel this device provides just enough connections for external devices and for the price it is a top contender. The screen is the best you will find at this price point offering a bright and crisp picture. It's a FullHD 1080p IPS touchscreen display in the more recognizable 16:9 aspect ratio we are used to seeing. Nothing special as far as touch responsiveness, it is just average. The keyboard is black lit and may take some getting used to as far as key spacing. The strokes are smooth but a bit mushy for me, and have a nice tactile feel. The trackpad is above average in build, but I don't find it as accurate as I'd like it to be. I have to swipe multiple times to get it to move where I want it be and I find myself tapping on the screen a few times. Unfortunately because of design choices, you will need to use two hands to open it. Don't think you can use two fingers to start opening it, these hinges are super tight. Again, attributed to the solid build quality. The screen half of the device is very light and the two parts lack a cutout for finger placement. I can tell you the build quality is excellent if you can deal with the weight. The hinges are tight and don't wobble and wiggle with slight pressure like cheaper built laptops. I do have a testimonial concerning the durability here. This laptop fell from my kitchen counter to the hardwood floor and nothing major happened but a small dent in the corner of the body. It landed on the corner of the screen while closed and it just separated to absorb shock. I quickly snapped the bezel to the body and it was good as new. No screen crack or internal damage. An unintentional drop test that passes with flying colors. - USER EXPERIENCE AND FEATURES The experience on this Chromebook is on par with the PixelBook. No lagging and it works great. It runs ChromeOS and that means you get Chrome Webstore and Google Play Store access! That is something I love. OPTIONS! Now there is no need for an Android tablet if you have this. One less thing to charge. Battery life is excellent netting me around 7 to 7.5 hours of my heavy use. This means with video streaming, gaming, email, and some Microsoft Office work. The average user will not get this battery life, they will see closer to the 8-11hr range. I love that updates are handles directly by Google and this does not have Dell bloatware you find on Windows laptops. THANK GOD! As a result, this thing is snappy and very responsive while being power efficient. It boots up very quickly in under 8 seconds. The screen is very bright with accurate color and excellent viewing angles. The touchscreen is just average to me. The provided stylus is an added bonus I use for note taking. When I don't have my Note 9, this will be the fill in. The stylus itself is constructed well out of plastic. It does not need to be charged A compelling overall package put together by Dell. SPECS -4GB DDR4 Memory one slot available only. -128GB EMMC Flash Memory -Air Cooled 2.2GHz 8th-gen IntelR CoreT i3-8130U -Built-In Webcam and Backlit keyboard -14" 1920 x 1080 (Full HD) LED IPS Touchscreen - this is a nice display. Colors close to accurate but a little on the cooler side. There isn't any oleophobic coating (like smartphones) to guard against fingerprints so be prepared to clean this screen a lot. -3.5mm microphone-in/headphone-out combo jack, 1 USB, and 1 HDMI out -IntelR Wireless-AC connectivity (2x2, 867 Mbps) and Bluetooth 4.0. Lots to like... -Chrome OS - Auto updates and software patches from Google directly! Nothing better than that. It's a hybrid OS that blends Android and ChromeOS together in perfect harmony. Not all apps are optimized yet, but there has been great progress. -Stylus Builtin - This is just a nice to have. It'sn't spectacular like a Wacom but it is functional. -2in1 Design w/ 360 flip & fold - this is a plus for a 2in1. They offer options but cannot completely separate from the keyboard. Not to like -Lack of Options - If you want more ram or a different chip in this frame factor. oh well. There is no option to upgrade RAM or storage. This isn't your typical Dell build-a-product. There are no options. Take this or leave it. -Bluetooth 4.0 - Why are we still releasing 4.0 devices? It's almost 2019, we need BT 5.0 for more range with wireless and power efficiency. -Sharp Edges - This is just my preference, but I'd like them to refine the edges and smooth things a bit. -Weight - I'd like this too be .5lbs lighter to be more comparable to other Chromebooks in this range. -It's kind of an awkward aspect ratio so it feels big for no reason. Tablet mode isn't close to a true tablet experience. It's big but weight is distributed evenly. -Non-upgradable RAM! Enough said. No option for them to or you to DIY it. Very disappointing. SHARE MY THOUGHTS GO/NOGO If you can deal with the weight, this is for you. 4lbs isn't much but compared to other Chromebooks this is on the beefier side. I'd say this is great for a student or person invested in the Android ecosystem. Professionals can look here too for a portable work device. Lastly, this is built to last. This one is the best overall package on this price range.
