Dell Offers New Lineup of Education-Specific Laptops and Tablets

Dell technology recently released a line of "education solutions designed to meet individual learning needs," including a new Chromebook 11, Venue 10 and Venue 10 Pro tablets as well as the Latitude 11 Education Series laptop. Each have an innovative and durable design specified for students to use in and outside of the classroom, and were specifically created to enhance the learning experience.

"The classroom is changing quickly, and innovative technology is a major way for students to enjoy a collaborative educational experience," said Sam Burd, the vice president and general manager of Dell Personal Computing Product Group in an official press release. "Education devices need to be really robust to make it through a school district's life cycle. They also need to be powerful and flexible enough to suit individual learning needs, and make collaborating within the classroom simple."

The products were designed to withstand schoolyard tousling and all feature a rubberized trim to protect them when dropped.

"The latest model has been upgraded with an anti-glare Corning Gorilla Glass NBT display (with optional touchscreen capabilities) and a liquid-resistant keyboard and touchpad. It also features rubberized trim to protect the Chromebook 11 from kids' less-than-delicate handling," reports Sean Portnoy for ZD Net. "Dell is touting the laptop's built-in activity light, which can be used not only to indicate answers in interactive quizzes, but also to show when students are online and not paying attention to the lesson."

Other classroom products include an interactive projector and a specially designed KACE Systems Management Appliance.

The Chromebook 11 is available for purchase beginning February 12, 2015 on Dell.com and major electronic retailers, while the Latitude 11 Education Series and Venue 10 Pro will be on sale beginning March 3, 2015. The Venue 10 will be available in spring 2015.
