Manufacturer Creates Chromebook Specifically for K-12 Classrooms

Sankatel Creates New Chromebook for K-12 Classroom

Google Chromebooks are taking over the classroom, and electronics manufacturers are hopping on the bandwagon creating their notebooks for eudcators to use. 

Senkatel is one of the most recent PC's to target the K-12 education market with its own Chromebook with features that are designed for that age range, said EducationNews.org. The Senkatel C1101 Chromebook's battery lasts for 9-and-a-half hours, water-resistant, anti-peel keys, and a touchpad that channels liquid away from the electronics. The Chromebook, the article said, is rugged enough for children to handle with a design that can handle bumps and drops of up to two feet.

“Senkatel continues to address the K-12 education market need for high-quality, affordably priced Internet-enabled devices and software,” said Joseph Virginia, president of Senkatel USA, in a statement. “Our new C1101 Chromebook allows educators and students to access a wide array of classroom management, lesson planning, and educational software content directly through the Google Play for Education website.”

Specs for the Chromebook include:

Intel® Celeron® N2830 processor operating at 2.16 GHz, and includes 2GB of SDRAM system memory with a 16GB solid state drive, the article said. "Unique to the C1101 is an additional 100GB of Google Drive cloud-based storage at no extra charge for the first 2-years. Connectivity features include Bluetooth® 4.0 and 2×2 dual-band Wi-Fi 802.11 ac/a/b/g/n operating in both 2.4GHz and 5GHz frequencies. The rotatable camera and microphone can be angled to capture images, video and support scientific inquiry. A fan-less design eliminates distracting noise."
