The new Dell Chromebook 5000 series machines will be available in 11.6 inch convertible or clamshell laptop form factors. Prices are expected to start at $289 when the Dell Chromebook 5190 goes on sale in February.
Dell isn’t providing detailed specs, but the company says the laptop has a USB Type-C port and it will come with a choice of Intel Celeron dual-core or quad-core processors. Optional features include a “world facing” camera and an EMR pen.
The laptops are also said to support up to 13 hours of battery life and feature a rugged design that allows the laptop to survive a drop from 48 inches onto a variety of surfaces or a 30 inch drop onto steel or other hard surfaces.
Dell says the Chromebook 5190 can also “withstand 10,000 micro-drops” of up to 4 inches at multiple angles.
