Updated November 7, 2014 6:22 pm - Today, Dell has announced the new classroom-ready Latitude 13 Education Series laptop that is built to meet the needs of any student computing program. This laptop is designed to be tough to withstand heavy use by students in classrooms – it has been subject to military-standard testing.
It is built with a rubberized LCD and base trim and has a fully sealed keyboard and touchpad. So the Latitude 13 Education Series laptop can withstand a lot of bumps, drops and spills. It comes with a 13.3-inch display and on models with touch it has Corning Gorilla Glass NBT for scratch resistance.
The Latitude 13 Education Series laptop opens at 180 degrees to reduce stress in the hinge as it is carried around in weird ways by students and can also “tattle” on students with a network activity light that illuminates when students connect to the WLAN. And finally, it is also built to be really secure as well with comprehensive encryption and advanced authentication and integration with Microsoft System Center.
The Latitude 13 Education Series starts at $539 (U.S.) with non-touch models available in red, blue and black colors and touch models available in black.
