Dell introduced a new range of Chromebooks with Chrome OS for students to work in classrooms, laboratories and at home at the BETT Show in London. Specifically, the Chromebook 5000 series, which will be available in clamshell and 2-in-1 convertible versions with an 11-inch display, a battery that guarantees up to 13 hours of usage time and many more features for education purpose.
Dell Chromebook 5190 will be the first to be placed on the market, offering reinforced chassis to withstand falls of up to 1.2 meters and 76 centimeters if they fall on a steel surface. The “rugged” features of the product are particularly evident in the presence of a scratch-resistant display, reinforced hinges and a splash-resistant keyboard (Dell claims that the devices can withstand up to 10 thousand micro drops).
The Dell Chromebook 5000 series integrates Intel Celeron dual or quad-core processors, a World Facing Camera for making a video (optional). There is no lack of EMR pen support and USB Type-C connectivity.
Waiting to know the complete specifications, Dell has revealed that Chromebook 5190 will be available from February with a starting price of US$289.
