Dell has introduced its first Chromebook, a web-centric laptop targeted at the education market. The Dell Chromebook 11 features an 11.6-inch display (1366 x 768 pixel), along with an Intel Haswell Celeron 2955U processor.
The "Bay Trail" family is based on Intel's "Silvermont" architecture announced in May 2013. The Atom Z3000 Processor Series ("Bay Trail-T") is the company's first mobile multi-core SoC. Other variants include new Pentium and Celeron processors ("Bay Trail"-M and -D) that targets the laptop and desktop market.
Chinese white-box vendors will start churning out Windows 8 tablets in May and the ex-factory prices for 11.6-inch units are estimated at about $300.
Shuttle is well known for its lineup of fanless x86 PCs, most of which are powered by Intel's Atom processor.
Although Google's long-awaited Chromebox wasn't widely available until recently, a number of units have already been snapped up by early adopters.
