Dell Announces Chromebook 5190 for Students

These Dell Chromebooks (5190) are available in 11-inch clamshell or 2-in-1 convertible form factors, and deliver improved performance, more than 13 hours of battery life, the ultimate in durability for students and advanced features tailor-made for the classroom environment.

Learning and design elements from the rigorous testing done on the Rugged portfolio find their way into the education products as well, including scratch-resistant displays, reinforced hinges, spill-resistant keyboards and chassis designed to survive drops.  The Dell Chromebook 5000 series is built to withstand common accidents that may happen in the classroom or on the go with a new robust chassis design that survives 48-inch drop tests and 30-inch drop tests onto steel (the approximate height of a classroom desk on the harshest possible surface). Plus, Dell is the first Chromebook manufacturer with the ability to claim its devices can withstand 10,000 micro-drops. With 4-inch drops performed in multiple angles, Dell could replicate student device damage seen at two to four-year usage.

Other new features exclusive to the Dell Chromebook 5000 series include World Facing Camera options for creating videos, EMR pen support for a natural pen-to-paper writing experience, USB Type-C connectivity for easy connections to external drives and other peripherals, and dual-core and quad-core Intel Celeron processors for faster performance. The Dell Chromebook 5190 devices will be available starting in February 2018 and pricing will start at $289.
