Lenovo enters the Chromebook market with two devices aimed at education

Lenovo is the latest OEM to join Google’s Chromebook scheme. During the Florida Education Technology Conference (FETC), the Chinese firm unveiled a pair of Intel chip-powered 11.6-inch ThinkPad 11e laptops running Google’s browser-centric platform.

Thin and light, these purpose-built devices offer education administrators the durability necessary to succeed in the hands of K-12 students and the flexibility to meet the increasingly changing needs of their technology demands. The ThinkPad 11e series is available in two form factors: traditional laptop or Lenovo’s innovative Yoga multimode form with four unique positions: laptop, tablet, tent and stand. The ThinkPad Yoga 11e devices offer students a system that can adapt to their needs based on the application or the content they are working with.

Lenovo’s new laptops rock a battery that can get students through the day, as well as cover LEDs that indicate wireless connectivity, laptop power or sleep mode.

The ThinkPad 11e series of devices will be available this spring from Lenovo business partners and on lenovo.com. Pricing for the ThinkPad Yoga 11e Chromebook and ThinkPad 11e Chromebook models starts at $349.
