Exclusively for educational market Lenovo produces a rugged customizable laptop.
The X131e Chromebook will sport an 11.6-inch display with 1366×768 pixel resolution. Recognzing that kids are not always gentle with their gadgets, Lenovo reinforced the steel hinges and installed rubber bumpers on the top cover. Always-on Active Protection System should prevent any unnecessary damage from accidental fall to the ground. For the absent minded kids Asset Tagging should help recover the lost goods.
X131e is running Google Chrome OS with ThinkVantage software to manage all the web content. There will be a USB, 6-cell battery and a 720p web camera.
Caesar Sengupta of Google’s Chrome says,
“Chromebooks are in use today by more than one-thousand K-12 schools, and they make an ideal on-toone device because they’re more cost effective, easier to manage and maintain than traditional laptops or tablets. Lenovo has a great reputation in schools for making durable and reliable laptops, so we’re excited to partner with them to introduce the ThinkPad X131e Chromebook.”
