Schoolyard-Tough Laptops

Dell's Chromebook 11 is Designed For the Educational Space

— February 13, 2015 — Life-Stages
The Dell Chromebook 11 is a laptop that, like other Chromebooks, is designed for the educational space. This laptop in particular targets schools as its main market. It is not the most powerful laptop in the world because it is designed for web browsing and basic software and so doesn't require ridiculous horsepower. Its Intel Celeron processor and 2 GB/4 GB RAM options are more than enough for classroom applications.

The laptop is equipped with an 11.6-inch 1,366 x 768 anti-glare display, and can come with an optional touchscreen. It can run for up to 10 hours on a single charge, more than enough to get it through the school day. They are described as being 'schoolyard-tough' and durable enough to withstand knocks and drops.

When you think good laptops, you might often think of the ones with the fanciest features and the most power. However the Dell Chromebook 11 is a great laptop in that it serves its target market well.
Trend Themes
1. Educational Chromebooks - The trend of designing laptops specifically for the educational space creates opportunities for companies to develop durable and affordable devices that cater to the specific needs of students.
2. Schoolyard-tough Technology - The rise of schoolyard-tough laptops presents an opportunity for companies to innovate in creating durable and rugged devices that can withstand the demands of everyday classroom use.
3. Increased Battery Life - The trend of laptops offering extended battery life, such as the Dell Chromebook 11 with up to 10 hours, opens up opportunities for companies to develop devices that can last throughout the school day without requiring frequent charging.
Industry Implications
1. Education Technology - The educational technology industry can capitalize on the trend of educational Chromebooks by developing software and applications that enhance the learning experience and cater to the specific requirements of students and teachers.
2. Electronics Manufacturing - The electronics manufacturing industry can take advantage of the demand for schoolyard-tough laptops by designing and producing durable devices that can withstand the wear and tear of classroom use.
3. Battery Technology - The battery technology industry can seize the opportunity presented by the increased demand for extended battery life in laptops, by developing innovative power solutions that offer longer runtimes without sacrificing performance.
