Dell hopes to resume sales of Chromebook 11 ‘in the coming weeks’

Dell’s Chromebook 11 is apparently so popular that they can’t keep up with demand. In response, the company has halted sales of its Chrome OS-based laptop.

A notice on Dell’s official Chromebook 11 page urges customers to contact a sales representative to find out how to order a Chromebook 11. Even the price is no longer listed.

However, Dell is reportedly still selling the Chromebook 11 to education-based customers. The company had this to say when speaking with PCWorld.

“Due to strong demand, the Dell Chromebook 11 is currently not available for order on Dell.com. It continues to be available for our education customers and can be ordered through their sales representative,” Dell said in an email.

We reached out to Dell as well, and here’s what we were told by a company official.

“We are working with our procurement and product teams to recover inventory and offer it for sale again on Dell.com in the coming weeks.”

Dell announced the Chromebook 11 back in December, which includes a 4th-generation Intel Celeron 2955U processor, 11.6-inch 1366 x 768 display, a 16GB SSD, and Intel integrated graphics. As is the case with Acer’s new C720 Chromebook, there are two versions of the Chromebook 11: one has 2GB of RAM, and other has 4GB. The Chromebook 11 supports 802.11 a/b/g/n Wi-Fi connectivity, Bluetooth 4.0 and sports a pair of USB 3.0 ports along with an HDMI out. Dell also claims battery life of “up to 10-hours.”
