Dell EMC just announced a brand new portfolio of education PCs and monitor. These are meant to help teachers use the latest technology in the educational process. Thanks to these new products learning can become a lot more interactive and fun. Of course, it can be more efficient also. The new lineup consists in three new laptops and two large touch monitors. They are all extremely easy to use in class, but probably the most impressive ones are the 360° convertible notebook and the 86-inch monitor.
The Latitude 11 Convertible and the Chromebook 11 Convertible are new additions to Dell’s lineup. They are 2-in-1 convertible laptops and they work in clamshell, tablet, and tent modes. This way, it is easier for students to gather around them and take a good look at what is going on. The Latitude 11 Convertible is available with 7th generation Intel Celeron and Pentium processors, while the Chromebook 11 Convertible comes with a 6th generation Intel Celeron processor. In tablet mode, the Windows version also offers a “world- facing” camera for creating videos. This version also offers an optional Dell Productivity Active Pen. This allows students to take notes and make diagrams on the laptop.
The Latitude 11 and Chromebook 11 are the non-convertible siblings of the aforementioned models. The 11-inch notebooks feature an ergonomically designed keyboard that is extremely easy to use. They have a battery that can take users through the day without any problems. They are available with the same processors as the convertible models. That is 7th generation Intel Celeron and Pentium processors for the Latitude 11 and 6th generation Intel Celeron for the Chromebook 11.
There are also 13-inch models among the new gadgets. The Latitude 13 and the Chromebook 13 are slightly larger than the previously presented notebooks. These models also offer more powerful processors faster memory. Latitude 13 is available with 6th and 7th Gen Intel Celeron, Pentium, and up to Core i5 processors, while the Chromebook 13 is available with 6th Gen Intel Celeron or Core i3 processors. All these laptops are made from resistant materials, making them appropriate for everyday use in schools. The keyboards and touchpads are fully sealed, so they provide protection against spills.
Dell EMC also launched two new Touch Monitors. There are a 55-inch and an 86-inch monitor with 4K support. They have up to 20 touch points, so they are perfect for collaboration in classrooms and meeting rooms. The new InGlass technology allows natural writing with the two included passive styluses. Easy viewing is enabled by the anti-glare and anti-smudge coating on the cover glass. They feature multiple ports, making them easy to connect to a number of devices. Optionally they also offer wireless connectivity with the Dell Wireless Module. Both models can integrate a Dell OptiPlex Micro desktop within the back panel.
The laptops will become available starting February 7. The price of the Latitude 11 Convertible will start at $579, while the Chromebook 11 Convertible can go as low as $349. The non-convertible Latitude 11’s price starts at $349. The Chromebook 11 will be priced at least $219. The price of the Latitude 13 will start at $519, while the Chromebook 13 will cost $299. The Touch monitors are a little more expensive. The 55-inch model’s price will be somewhere below $5.000, while the larger monitor will cost a little less than $11.000. These will become available starting March 30 in the US.
