Dell teams with Google for a pro-level Chromebook 13: Hands onThis high-design Chrome OS system can cost as much as a premium laptop, and takes aim at small businesses and big IT departments.
[MUSIC] Hi there, we are here taking a look at Dell's new Chromebook 13. This is a Chromebook intended for business audiences, but it has got some crossover potential, it takes a lot of design cues from XPS 13 that we like so much. The construction here looks really nice, the back of the lid is a carbon fiber weave here and the palm rest, it's a magnesium alloy, on the bottom we have aluminium. So really not a lot of plastic in this guy. It's gonna start at about 399. For that you're gonna get a Celeron processor and a non-touch screen. If you go all the way up to about 899, you can get a Core i5, you can get a touch screen. All of these include a 1920 by 1080p full HD display. I also like this guy has a backlit keyboard. That's something you very rarely see on a Chromebook. The Dell Chromebook 13 is going to be available starting September 17th.
