Dell joins the Chromebook club with the Dell Chromebook 11

This 11-inch laptop, running Chrome OS, is targeted at schools.

Dell is officially announcing its first Chromebook on December 11. The system, to be called the Dell Chromebook 11 (HP also has a system called the Chromebook 11 ), won't be aimed at casual budget PC shoppers, but instead at schools.

The company says, "The Chromebook 11 was built specifically to meet the needs of schools and districts around the country looking to deploy affordable and comprehensive one-to-one computing initiatives."

No details about the system's components or features are available yet, but Dell says it plans to introduce other Chromebooks in the coming months, some aimed at business users, others at consumers.
