Dell and Google present the Chromebook 13

Dell and Google have secretly teamed up in the past in order to develop and present a new Chromebook and the device just happens to be here now – it is called Dell Chromebook 13 and is actually a premium device in its class targeting professional users at the same time.

“Working in a high paced environment like The Weather Channel, it’s essential we have the right technologies in place so we can stay up to date with the latest information and power our continuous coverage,” said Nicholas Gardner, sr. director corporate technology, The Weather Company. “The Dell Chromebook 13 we’ve been testing has provided us with a secure, powerful and easy to manage device that we can use both in the office and on location. We’re excited by its potential and look forward to seeing it come to market.”

The new Dell Chromebook 13 has really nice hardware inside – the device has a carbon fiber cover, magnesium alloy palm rest and an aluminum base to start with. There are two versions of the notebook – the first one has a touchscreen with Gorilla Glass 3 protection while the other one has a non-touchscreen display with a matte screen. In both cases, however, we are talking about a 13.3-inch display at Full HD resolution.

The new Chromebook offers several 5th generation Intel Broadwell processors as well – an Intel Celeron chip at 1.5 GHz, a Core i3 processor at 2.0 GHz and a Core i5 chip that runs at 2.9 GHz. The machine also has 2 GB, 4 GB or 8 GB of RAM and 16 GB or 32 GB of internal SSD storage memory. There’s a battery too that can provide power for up to 12 hours as well as a 720p web camera and dual array microphones.

The Dell Chromebook 13 starts at USD 399 and will be on the market on September 17 this year.
