The ongoing pandemic has forced a shift in education that probably would have occurred anyway but has been profoundly accelerated. It’s no longer optional for kids to have access to a Chromebook or similar device; they’re becoming as necessary for education as a pen and spiral notebook. This need inspires new market innovations by companies like Acer, who are rolling out four new educational Chromebooks designed to fit various students’ (and teachers’) needs!
I’ve always had a soft spot for ChromeOS. There’s something so efficient and appealing about being able to pick up any Chromebook, login, and be ready to go in moments. I was sent the Lenovo Flex 5i 13″ 2-in-1 Chromebook to review, and it’s been such an enjoyable experience that it’s basically been the only computer I’ve reached for the last few weeks!
Whether you’re heading back to work or trying to improve your work-from-home setup, Lenovo has you covered with a slew of new devices. Need a laptop, monitor, earbuds, or something else? Read on to find out how Lenovo’s new devices will upgrade your tech in style.
Whether your workplace has a return-to-work plan or if you’re going to be rocking working permanently in your PJs from your living room, there’s a strong chance you’re going to be getting more and more work done on the go. The pandemic jump-started the concept of working from anywhere, and that’s not going to end even when it’s safe to go back into the water office. Lenovo and AT&T are looking to make this new work from anywhere in the world smoother and more efficient with a pair of Lenovo laptops connected right to that sweet, sweet AT&T mobile network!
Whether you’re using them for remote work, school, or at your business, for gaming, or consuming media, tablets have really proven their worth. The MediaTek Kompanio 1300T is a system on a chip (SoC) that will bring a premium experience to tablet users with its advanced 5G multimedia, AI, and gaming technologies.
A colleague recently described her love/hate relationship with Chromebooks to me. She loves that they have allowed her daughter to continue her studies during lockdown but hates the fact that they’re so cheap they’ve gone through three just this year. That wouldn’t be the case if she had a 13″ Lenovo ThinkPad C13 Yoga Chromebook 2-in-1 Laptop. It’s rock-solid!
We don’t know what next year will bring when it comes to education and the pandemic. What we do know is that the trend of needing computers at just about every education level is definitely accelerating rapidly. Never one to miss a trend, Lenovo is prepared to dive into the education market with both Chrome OS and Windows laptops that can handle whatever the world is ready to throw at them (or, in the case of younger children, handle wherever it gets thrown). [Please don’t throw any computers.]
A full Windows operating system isn’t necessary to accomplish much of what many people do on their laptops. Many of us have found that Chromebooks are an affordable go-to for getting things done. If you’re in the market for a new Chromebook, you’re going to want to check out the Samsung Galaxy Chromebook 2; it starts at $549, and pre-orders open today.
Acer was one of the first computer manufacturers to see the value in Chrome OS, and they’ve especially been big on the convertible concept. The Acer Spin 514 Chromebook is the latest generation of Acer’s iconic touchscreen convertible laptops, and it’s a very impressive upgrade.
One of the things I’ve come to appreciate, as I’ve learned more about MediaTek, is how many of the everyday electronic items I use — and depend on — have MediaTek chips in them. Yet, I doubt that I’ve ever given much thought about what was making these devices work, which honestly says a lot about MediaTek’s ubiquitousness.
Do you need a new computer? Chances are, with all of us working and learning from home, if you don’t, then someone in your household might. Whether you need a Chromebook, a Windows PC, or some accessories, chances are Acer just announced a product that fits!
Chromebooks have gone from being a novelty to being incredible productivity tools (just ask any student how they’re surviving remote learning!) Lenovo knows that efficient, reliably, and speedy computers are something everyone needs. Enter the new ThinkPad C13 Yoga Chromebook Enterprise!
When announced at CES this year, the Lenovo Duet Chromebook attracted a lot of attention for putting some great features and looks into a budget-priced ChromeOS tablet. Everyone was intrigued – would it live up to the hype? Travis and I each bought one once they were released, and are ready to share some impressions after a few months of use.
Need a little something to perk up your back to school experience? We’ve got you! Lenovo has sent us a huge box of giveaway items that are looking for new homes, and we can’t wait to share them with you! Entry is easy, and if you are one of our lucky winners, one of these prizes will soon be in your hands.
Stressed about social distancing, confused about lockdowns, and generally feeling like the world has gone topsy turvy? You need some good old fashioned geeky retail therapy, and the good folks at Acer have your back with a slew of new computers to tempt your wallet and distract you from 24-hour news — or help you stream it faster. Your choice.
Chromebooks have been through many iterations since they first appeared. What was once a glorified web browser in computer form has emerged as a much more full-featured computing device with a number of variations depending on your needs. Lenovo has two new Chromebooks that break the mold, with a 2-in-1 device as well as a detachable tablet/laptop hybrid!
Lenovo lavished attention on their business line with a ThinkPad refresher, but heading into IFA they’re showing some love to consumers as well with new lineups in monitors, laptops, Chromebooks, tablets, and desktops!
In addition to announcing the new Acer Swift 7 laptop, Acer just took the wraps off the $279.99 Acer Chromebook 315. With a 15.6” display and running on 7th Generation AMD A6-9220C or A4-9120C processors with Radeon graphics, the Chromebook 315 is a powerful Chromebook that is one of the increasing number of Chromebook that run Android apps.
Making a splash at CES, ASUS debuted a new line of Chromebook products aimed at the Education sector, called the ASUS Chromebook Education series. These ruggedized, classroom-ready laptops feature an ergonomic design and are easily serviced. The line-up includes the first-ever ASUS Chrome OS Tablet, two 11.6” Chromebooks in clamshell and convertible configurations, and a larger 14” clamshell.
Everyone around you might be getting ready for Memorial Day, but Acer is still hard at work upping their computing game with new Chromebooks, gaming notebooks, desktops and more! So be prepared to spend whatever money you haven’t committed to a beach vacation on some sweet new tech!
If you’ve ever looked at Lenovo’s Chromebooks and wished they weren’t only available for education, then you’ll be glad to know that the Lenovo 300e and 500e Chromebooks are now available for everyone to buy, and the 100e will be available in March.
