IDG Contributor Network: Reviewed: Dell Chromebook 13 strikes fine balance between price and power

What is the best notebook to take on the road? In my opinion, it’s not the one you use everyday, which might have all of your important business docs stored securely on a hard drive or your daughter’s senior picts you just off-loaded from a professional photographer. There’s the laptop you use at work, and then the laptop you carry to the airport terminal.

The Dell Chromebook 13 fits in that second category, and I mean that in the best way possible. It’s similar in almost every way to the recently updated Google Chromebook PIxel, which costs $999, except with one important distinction: the Dell Chromebook 13 costs just $429 for the version I tested with 4GB of RAM. (Dell also makes a model with 2GB of RAM for $399 and touchscreen models at higher prices.)
