It’s based around an AMD A6-9220C processor and Radeon R5 illustrations and giving up to 10 hours of battery life. Similarly as with the 512 arrangement over, no evaluating for the B114-21 has been uncovered, yet it will begin delivering in the second quarter.
Dell’s new Windows workstation for schools is the Latitude 3300 Education, a 13.3-inch scratch pad beginning at $619. It accompanies the typical toughness highlights, decision of Intel processors, and, contingent upon the arrangement, up to about 17 hours of battery life between charges. The Latitude 3300 is joined by a trio of invigorated (and ruggedized) frameworks from the Chromebook 3000 arrangement lineup, which get an execution refresh as Intel Gemini Lake processor redesigns.
The 3100 is a 11.6-inch PC beginning at $249 (contact screen alternative will help that cost) and bragging up to 14 hours battery life, while the 3400 is a 14-inch clamshell with asserted battery life of almost 13 hours for $319. Balancing things is the Chromebook 3100 2-in-1, builit around a 11.6-inch Gorilla Glass NBT touchscreen and offering more than 13 hours of battery life. It will begin at $359 when it starts transporting in March with Dell’s other new instruction workstations.
