Features Intel Learning Series software suite for using the e-reader, web camera and digital writing features
Lenovo has introduced its second generation Classmate+ laptops, in both traditional clamshell and convertible laptop form factors, based on the Intel Learning Series.
These new Classmate+ laptops offer students, teachers and IT administrators more ruggedness with new durability features like greater spill resistance, affordability, battery life up to 10 hours and enhanced usability with Intel Learning Series software suite for using the e-reader, web camera and digital writing features.
Lenovo’s Classmate+ laptops are equipped to handle the rough treatment students on-the-go can enforce upon technology and they feature a keyboard with enhanced water resistance, a tougher corner design, reinforced steel hinge and strengthened DC jack.
In addition, the laptops come with a 10.1-inch anti-glare screen with touch capability on the convertible as well as optional high-brightness or high-definition on both or a capacitive touch screen with a pen on the convertible.
The laptops sport an Intel Atom N2600 processor, 2 GB DDR3 memory, 320 GB hard drive or up to 32 GB solid state drive storage, 6-cell battery with up to 10 hours stand, 2 megapixels, three USB ports, VGA and an optional HDMI port for transferring data and displaying standard and high definition video to a monitor or TV.
Furthermore, the Lenovo Classmate+ Convertible has a rotating hinge designed to last tens of thousands of cycles. It also has a built-in hardware button to make scrolling through ebooks simple and an optional Trusted Platform Module to protect data like passwords and digital certificates from external software attacks and physical theft.
Lenovo Worldwide Education director Michael Schmedlen said Lenovo is committed to enhancing learning via Lenovo’s platform of PC offerings designed for students.
"By joining with Intel to create the new Lenovo Classmate+ Clamshell and Classmate+ Convertible laptops, we’re demonstrating how mobile computing fits into any learning environment, no matter the location or budget," said Schmedlen.
