The HP Chromebook 11 may not have returned to an available status just yet, however there is a Chromebook 11 coming from Dell. The company announced their first Chromebook this morning, the Dell Chromebook 11. Unlike the HP model though, Dell has their Chromebook 11 heading to the education market.

The Dell Chromebook 11 is expected to arrive in January and will be available in a 4GB and 2GB variety. And to clarify, that is a reference to the RAM. Dell has yet to offer a specific price and have instead mentioned how the notebook is "expected to sell below $300." It should also be pointed out the Dell Chromebook 11 will be available for those in the US and the UK.

That all having been said, this model Chromebook will be sporting an 11.6-inch display with a resolution of 1366 x 768. There will be Intel HD graphics, a 720p front-facing webcam, WiFi 802.11 a/b/g/n, Bluetooth 4.0, a pair of USB 3.0 ports and HDMI for connecting to an external display. Dell has also said the battery will be able to provide up to 10 hours of run time.

The remaining specs include a 16GB SSD drive and 4th generation Intel Celeron 2955U processor. Along with the hardware, Dell has some software goodies for the Chromebook 11. One item in particular is access to the Dell Wyse PocketCloud application which provides a "personal cloud" across devices. That app will be available for download by way of the Chrome Web Store. Otherwise, similar to other model Chromebooks, the Dell offering will have access to the other Chrome apps including Google Docs and Google Cloud Print.
