Dell Announces New Latitude And Chromebook Computers For School

Earlier today at the BETT Show in London, Dell announced new devices aimed at education for K-12 students worldwide. The new laptops are designed specifically to enhance the learning process, and also have improved durability to withstand the daily rigors of use by students.

The new 11-inch convertibles, the Latitude 11 and Chromebook 11, come with fully sealed keyboards that are protected against water and can be used in a traditional mode, folded in a tent formation, or like a tablet. The base trim is also rubberized to absorb shock.

The 13-inch convertibles, the Latitude 13 and Chromebook 13, are more powerful models as they can be configured using either Core i3 or i5 processors. All models will be available starting February 7
