Dell Inc is in talks with Google Inc over the use of the Chrome operating system on its laptops, a top company executive said on Monday.

"We have to have a point of view on the industry and technology direction two years, three years down the road, so we continuously work with Google on this," Amit Midha, Dell's president for Greater China and South Asia told Reuters in an interview.
