Dell Chromebook 11.6” Laptop (Scratch & Dent)
Designed with students in mind, this Chromebook weighs three pounds and is tested for durability, staying lightweight and supremely portable for going from class to class and back home. It also requires little maintenance, thanks to a fully sealed keyboard and touchpad, plus automatic updates and malware scanning that never require extra software or manual upgrades.
Cloud-Based Chrome OS
This Chromebook can forego the components that make most laptops bulky and heavy, thanks to its web-based Chrome OS. Rather than store applications and files on a built-in hard drive, Chrome syncs with your pre-existing Google account to store everything, from documents and spreadsheets to MP3 files and video, entirely online. This system not only saves space on your computer; it makes your files accessible from anywhere you can log into your Google account, such as your smartphone.
Stream shows, catch the latest movie trailers, or explore an online video game’s vivid fantasyland in crisp, clear detail. Saturated with about 1 million pixels, the display produces image quality similar to what you’d see on an HDTV with 720p HD resolution. Such sharpness and clarity also make the text on your favorite news and social-media sites clear and easy to read.
Solid-State Drive: Speed and Reliability
The built-in solid-state drive (SSD) performs the same duties of a traditional hard-disk drive, but up to 100 times faster. Unlike hard-disk drives, SSDs don’t rely on moving parts to write, store, and retrieve data; instead, they use flash memory chips that can boot up your computer and launch apps in mere seconds. Without the moving parts, SSDs are also lighter, take up less space within your computer, and are less susceptible to damage and data loss from computer bumps.
Video Chat with Anyone, Anywhere
A built-in webcam can make it feel like people miles away are in the room with you, helping you connect more clearly than with a phone call or email. Collaborate with colleagues in other offices, listen as your niece or nephew rapturously explains their finger painting, or laugh every time your friend’s cat walks across their keyboard.
