Lenovo announces new Chromebooks as part of 2021 education portfolio
Lenovo on Tuesday announced a number of new laptops and accessories as part of its 2021 education-based portfolio, including a handful Chromebooks. Here, we’ll share some of the details as it pertains to the 14e Gen 2, 100e, 300e, and 500e Chromebooks.
Each of the new models features Wi-Fi 6 connectivity, ensuring lightning quick downloads, uploads, and video streams. Moreover, they’re loaded with a Chrome Education license which means schools can easily manage, track, and update them from one central location.
Additionally, the new models are tested to meet MIL-STD-810H and Lenovo EDU Spec standards so they can handle the wear and tear that comes with lugging them to and from school. In a related note, they have improved water-resistance up to 360 ml, and boast reinforced ports, improved mechanically-anchored keys, and other hardware enhancements.
Each of the models is powered by an AMD processor and have batteries that last up to 10 hours per charge, some of which allow for fast charging.
While these might have some of the same standard bullet points, each is a bit different from the other. The screen resolution, for instance, varies in different versions as do the types of ports. Also, keep in mind that some will open flat and others will function as a 2-in-1 and close to form a tablet.
