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.”

Dell ‘New Year’ Sale: Save $80 on this 32-inch 4K monitor
The 27-inch Dell S2721QS 4K monitor on a table.

While there tends to be a lot of focus on gaming monitors these days, there are a lot of folks who are looking for a monitor that is oriented towards doing graphical work, something which most game monitors don't necessarily have coverage for. To that end, the Dell 32 SE3223Q is a great example of that since it's a 4K monitor that has quite a lot of solid features and is well worth grabbing if you want something a bit more high-end for graphical work. Luckily, while it usually goes for $380, Dell has knocked $80 off the price, bringing it down to a solid $300, making it a great pick for what you're getting.

Why you should buy the Dell 32 SE3223Q Monitor
At 32 inches, the Dell SE3223Q is quite big and at the edge of what most folks would consider a good size for a desktop monitor that you're going to have your face up to constantly. Luckily, it's a high-quality monitor and can cover about 99% of the sRGB gamut, which is huge and makes this an excellent monitor for doing graphical work since you'll get better color reproduction. It is also TÜV-certified, meaning that it's flicker-free and generally easier on the eyes than lower-end monitors that might have a strobing effect, and it even reduces the blue-light effect, so it's made to look after your eyes.

best dell gaming laptop g16 2023 main

If you're somewhat familiar with the game laptop market, then you'll know that the G16 and its previous iteration, the G15, are often recommended for being great budget and mid-range gaming laptops. Luckily, Dell has discounted its G16 even more, down to just $950 from $1,399, meaning you can grab a solid gaming laptop without crossing the $1,000 threshold. It might have an older-generation GPU, but it's great if you want to get a big-screen gaming laptop without spending a huge amount of cash.

Why you should buy the Dell G16 gaming laptop
The beating heart of any gaming laptop is its GPU, and in this case, the G16 comes with an RTX 3060, an entry-level graphics card that should handle most modern games just fine. Granted, you will probably struggle to hit both the 2560x1600 resolution and the 165Hz refresh rate, but at least you have some options on what you wish to prioritize. Plus, the 16-inch screen means you get the far superior 16:10 aspect ratio, which gives you a wider field of view when playing games, which is always appreciated.
