Chromebooks for the Classroom

Lenovo recently came out with 3 new Chromebooks—the 500e, 300e, and 100e. Perfect for the classroom, these devices are affordable options for schools. Complete with a rugged design, these lightweight, portable laptops have mechanically anchored keys, rubber bumpers, and reinforced ports and hinges. Did we mention that these Chromebooks were tough? They are drop-resistant up to 29.5 inches, which is about the height of a school desk, plus they resist spills up to 1.39 cups. These devices boast up to 10 hours of battery life, and they come with support for Google Classroom and G Suite for Education.

The durable, 2-in-1 500e has an 11.6-inch HD IPS touchscreen display with a Gorilla® Glass screen to help resist damage.
