Lenovo ThinkPad X131e now available as a Chromebook!

Lenovo has launched their first Chrome OS powered computing device.

Lenovo ThinkPad X131e is already available with Windows. They are now offering a Chrome OS loaded version for students.

The company said that customers would be able to customize the laptop specification before offering.

It is powered with an Intel processor and features an 11.6 inch display with resolution of 1366×768.

Lenovo has also included three USB ports and a webcam. A 6 cell battery should be enough to last a complete day in school.

The company said:

Chromebooks are in use today by more than one-thousand K-12 schools, and they make an ideal on-toone device because they’re more cost effective, easier to manage and maintain than traditional laptops or tablets. Lenovo has a great reputation in schools for making durable and reliable laptops, so we’re excited to partner with them to introduce the ThinkPad X131e Chromebook.

Official announcement by Google:

Classrooms have unique hardware and software needs and this new Chromebook combines the hassle-free experience of Chrome OS with the ThinkPad’s rugged design for the classroom environment. With specialized features like a rubber bumper around the top cover, stronger corners, reinforced hinges and hinge brackets, and a high definition (HD) LED anti-glare screen, the Lenovo ThinkPad X131e Chromebook is ready for schools. Lasting up to 6.5 hours* with a latest-generation Intel processor, the ThinkPad Chromebook will keep up with even the most active students and teachers.
