Chromebook Meant To Stand Rigor of Student Use Now on the Market

Senkatel has introduced a Chromebook specifically tailored for the K-12 classroom. The C1101 Chromebook is a new version of the product Senkatel already produces, but designed to stand the rigors of the classroom and the average student.

Features of the C1101 include:

  • A 3-cell, 36-watt-hour battery that operates for up to 9.5 hours on a single charge, able to last throughout an entire school day. The battery can be serviced by the school's IT staff, eliminating downtime and warranty issues;
  • A water-resistant keyboard with anti-peel keys and a touchpad that channels liquid away from the electronics to prevent damage;
  • A rugged design capable of withstanding bumps and drops of more than 2 feet;
  • Reinforced areas around all ports, the security lock slot and mechanical hinges;
  • An integrated carry handle that allows students to hang the device in their lockers when not in use, rather than vertically stacking heavy items on it; and
  • More Internet access flexibility than most consumer-grade tablets and Chromebooks in order to accommodate some school systems' legacy wireless infrastructures.

Senkatel has introduced the C1101 Chromebook, which is designed to stand the rigors of the classroom and the average student.
The Intel processor-based Google Android OS education tablet has an 11.6-inch, anti-glare high-definition screen and is powered by an Intel Celeron N2830 processor with 2GB of system memory. Each C1101 Chromebook comes with an additional 100 GB of cloud-based storage at no cost for two years.

The C1101 is currently available through Synnex at a suggested retail price of $313.99 with a 1-year manufacturer's warranty. Discounts are available to schools for volume purchases.
