The Dell CRM3120-1667BLK is a bestselling 2015 11.6-inch Chromebook that received positive reviews for its tough built, compact size, matte screen, fast day-to-day performance, and long battery life. However, its screen has limited viewing angles, its design looks cheap and its storage is small. If you want a portable laptop for regular online work and document creation, the CRM3120-1667BLK is a reliable budget option.
While most Chromebook laptops incorporate modern design elements, the Dell CRM3120-1667BLK with its all-plastic body looks just like a regular budget laptop. The outer appeared might seem boring but the actual material is very sturdy. The rubberized surfaces on the base and around the screen provide additional protection by absorbing shocks, and the keyboard and trackpads are properly sealed for spill protection.
Having gone through all kinds of durability tests involving pressure, humidity, temperature and vibrations, this Dell Chromebook is built to last. Cheaply built, budget laptops are prone to hinge damages, but this laptop comes with an 18-degree LCD hinge that can flex all the way to lay flat on the surface. The 11.6-inch screen isn’t pixel rich but it’s plenty bright enough for daily use and it’s matte surface allows for better visibility in bright light than standard LCD displays.
The Intel Celeron N2840 Processor along with 2GB of RAM gives you enough power for running basic applications as well as doing some light multitasking heavy web browsing sessions with multiple browser tabs. Most of the 16GB storage is already occupied by Chrome OS, meaning you will need to add an SD Card if you plan on storing more than a handful of files and apps.
Ports are aplenty with two USB ports, an HDMI-out and a Kensington lock slot. Running over 9 hours on a charge, its battery life is much longer than other budget chromebooks.. If you leave out its relatively dull look, the Dell CRM3120-1667BLK is the best Chromebook on paper available at this price range.
