In a move which underscores the release of the first Chromebook by Dell, the company is set to make an official announcement of its Dell Chromebook 11 device on December 11.
Despite the fact that the specifics of the Dell Chromebook 11 - the shipping date of which has not yet been disclosed by Dell - are quite scant as of now, reports have revealed that the device has been designed for use in schools, and not for the casual budget PC customers.
However, in the coming months, Dell intends launching other Chromebook models which will target budget-conscious consumers and small-and-medium business users.
Noting that the forthcoming unveiling of the Dell Chromebook 11 marks the company's foray into the growing market of thin-and-light Chrome OS laptops, Dell said: "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."
The statement by Dell implies that the Chromebook 11 will only be available to educational institutions at present. Though Dell has not divulged the features of its Chromebook 11, it is speculated that the device will have an
11-inch screen; and, like other Chromebooks, have either an ARM processor or Intel's Celeron processor based on Haswell microarchitecture.
