For the past couple of years, we've seen Acer, ASUS, and Lenovo dominate the Chromebook market, as Dell seemingly decided against releasing new models. But that doesn't seem to be the case any longer, as the new Dell Latitude 3445 Chromebook is now available at Best Buy.
As noted by About Chromebooks, the Latitude 3445 Chromebook was quietly introduced back in May 2023 to little fanfare. After being only available from Dell directly, you can now pick up the Latitude 3445 Chromebook from Best Buy.
Currently, there are four different models to choose from, with the price starting at $549 for the base model and going up to $979. All four of these Chromebooks are powered by AMD processors, starting with the AMD Athlon Silver 7120C and going up to the AMD Ryzen 5 7520C, paired with varying amounts of RAM and storage.

It shouldn't come as too much of a surprise, but the entire Latitude 3445 Chromebook lineup is equipped with a 14-inch display. The base model features a 1366 x 768 resolution, but the other three configurations are all 1920 x 1200. The only other difference here is that the high-end model includes a touchscreen display and reaches 300 nits of peak brightness compared to the 250 nits on others.
Some of the other differences include the 2W5WK and N2HX1 models sporting 8GB of LPDDR5 RAM and a 256GB M.2 2230 SSD. The lower-tier models are "stuck" with half the RAM and rely on either 32GB or 64GB of eMMC storage. All four models share the same 4-cell, 54 Wh battery that can be charged with the included 65W power adapter.
Something that comes as a bit of a surprise is actually the price for these Dell Chromebooks. If you pick one up through Best Buy, you'll pay an extra $70 compared to purchasing one from Dell directly. We aren't exactly sure why this is the case, but it's still something to keep in mind. That being said, if you're in the market for what could end up as one of the best Chromebooks from Dell, now's your chance to do so.
