Inspiron Chromebook 14 two-in-one in City Grey.
Dell selected IFA 2018 to launch updates to its most mainstream-priced Inspiron line of laptops, together with its new 14-inch convertible Chromebook and a vivid and modern new show.
Regardless of Dell’s historical past for having small 11.6-inch Chromebooks and two-in-one Chromebooks for markets like schooling, that is the primary of its “premium” Chromebooks — a rising class of the Google Chrome OS-based laptops designed to look much less rough-and-ready and extra polished and upscale, just like the HP Chromebook x2, Samsung Chromebook Plus V2 and the grandaddy of dear Chromebooks, the Google Pixelbook.
It isn’t as slick and glossy as competing premium Chromebooks, however the aluminum Inspiron 14 two-in-one convertible features a 14-inch 1,920×1,080-pixel display screen with narrow-ish bezels and the stable, considerably stolid design of the Inspiron line. The Wacom EMR stylus docks into the underside of the physique the place it is accessible in pill mode.
The Chromebook, and choose Inspiron fashions, are available a brand new shade, City Grey, which I actually like as a low-key different to black or silver.
