Lenovo unveils ThinkPad Chromebook aimed at K-12 students

Lenovo adopts Chrome OS with new ThinkPad Chromebook designed for K-12 schools

Since its release the Chromebook has been a two-way street with only two companies choosing to build the Google OS devices. Lenovo has decided to join the ranks of Samsung and Acer and produce a Chromebook of its own.

Lenovo has announced that it is producing a Chromebook based on its X131e ThinkPad. It seems that the only hardware difference between the X131e and the X131e Chromebook is the lack of an AMD processor, and of course one runs Windows and the other Chrome OS.

 

Lenovo says that the X131e Chromebook is the perfect solution for K-12 schools because it is rugged, sports an 11.6-inch screen, and only runs light-weight web-only software and will not increase the schools IT department's overhead. The new Chromebook will only be available to institutional customers making volume bids, so don't count on owning one yourself at this stage.
