Next Gen School Notebook, your Way

La3340nt_dnb_adventure_backpackDell’s Latitude 13 Education Series notebook seems custom-made for schools because it was designed with the needs of teachers and students in mind. Rather than a handful of options, the base machine is available with so many options that there are likely thousands of configurations available. You can get it in traditional non-touch and touch-screen models that can fold flat on a tabletop for easier finger work.

 The system can use any operating system from Ubuntu Linux to Windows 8.1 Pro, and is powered by a variety of fourth-generation Intel processors that range from Celeron to Core i5. The system can hold up to 8GB of RAM and be outfitted with La3340t_dnb_180_degrees_bk500GB hard drive or an 80- or 128GB solid state storage system.

 The Latitude 13 Education model has a pair of USB 3.0 ports as well as HDMI, micro-DisplayPort, audio and an SD card slot, but no VGA connector for use with older projectors or monitors. While it’s not a ruggedized system, the Latitude 13 Education has a sealed keyboard as well as soft bumpers around its screen lid and base to protect it from the abuse that is all-too common in schools. Pricing starts at $540.
