Home Reviews Computers Lenovo educates the masses

Lenovo has launched the new ThinkPad 11e series aimed squarely at the education market – you will not see it in retail shops. Two models and two operating system variations are available.

The YOGA hinged version has a touch screen, and uses a 360-degree hinge to allow its use as a laptop, stand, tent, and a tablet folded back over the keyboard.

The ThinkPad version is a non-touch notebook.

It is available with Windows 8.1 or Chrome OS. Depending on the model, it will come with an Intel Bay Trail Celeron, quad core, processor (faster than the Atom), 16GB of storage on the Chromebook, and a choice of hard, or solid-state disks on Windows. Battery life should be 7-8 hours.

Lenovo states that it has passed MILSPEC testing – level unspecified. It has ruggedized the ports and keyboard; reinforced the corners, improved the hinges, removed the red TrackPoint button; and has Dragontrail Glass and rubber bumper edges protect the 11.6” screen. This should reduce the inevitable service issues associated with an education environment.

The four combinations share most of the following specifications.

  • Intel Celeron N2920, 2GHz quad core and Intel HD graphics
  • 11.6”, 1366x768 (IPS touch or non-touch) screen
  • 1.5kg approx.
  • 4 cell battery 35Whr
  • HDMI output, USB3.0 with charging, USB 2.0, Bluetooth 4.0, Wi-Fi, RJ45 on Windows, Kensington lock slot, 3.5mm headphone/mic port.
  • 720p front facing web cam, microphone and Dolby speakers

Price starts at A$579 and availability is via Lenovo education resellers.
