Unveiled at the International Society for Technology in Education conference in Atlanta, Georgia, the Education Chromebook features an 11.6-inch LED HD screen, a quad-core Intel Bay Trail mobile processor and 4GB RAM.
The Edxis Education Chromebook brings a few differences with it’s design and is made with the education market in mind. First though to address a few things about this model and availability. It will be distributed in certain Asian markets as the Edxis Education Chromebook. The design itself comes from Intel and may well be sold under a different name in other markets.
Chromebooks themselves are a fascinating proposition for schools. In a Google Apps environment they actually do what is needed better than competing OS platforms at a fraction of the price. Already for us they are enabling levels of device deployments that we only would have been able to dream about just a year ago.
The design of the notebook itself is child-friendly, with a raft of chassis features suited to the bumps and scrapes of a classroom environment. For example, ports and hinges have been reinforced and the shell has a bumper capable of withstanding drops of 70cm on concrete. Other educational touches include a water-resistant keyboard, non-peel keys and collapsable carry handle.
The fanless notebook features the following specifications:
- 11.6-inch HD LED screen
- Intel Celeron N2930 (quad core) running at 1.83GHz
- 4GB RAM
- 16GB eMMC SSD
- 8-9.5 hour battery life
Extras consist of a rotating 720p HD webcam with built-in microphone and snap-on lens and stereo speakers. For connectivity there’s a full-size HDMI out, 1x USB 2.0 and 1x USB 3.0, built-in card reader and built-in Bluetooth and Wi-Fi.
