Compal and RGS unveil education-oriented Chromebooks

Compal and RGS have announced two new Chromebooks aimed at educational institutions. The RGS Education Chromebook comes with a 11.6-inch display, a quad-core processor, and 4GB of RAM.

With more and more Chromebook manufacturers directly targeting educational institutions such as schools and universities, it's not just major manufacturers such as HP or Acer that are looking for a slice of the pie. Compal and RGS, two lesser-known companies, recently announced education-oriented Chrome OS laptops of their own.

The RGS Education Chromebook is a Chrome OS laptop that features an 11.6-inch display with a resolution of 1366 by 768 pixels, a quad-core Intel Celeron N2930 processor, 4GB of RAM, and 16GB of SSD storage space.

The Compal Chromebook Atlas is a 11.6-inch Chromebook that features a unique design twist in the form of an LED strip above the display. According to the manufacturer, the LED strip is designed to show the strength of WiFi reception, thus allowing teachers to ensure that all students have access to the local network or the Internet. At the moment, the company has yet to disclose detailed specs for the Chromebook Atlas. You might not know it, but Quanta Compal Electronics is one of the world's largest laptop and TV manufacturers. The reason why the company's name doesn't strike a bell with end-users is the fact that Quantal doesn't sell many laptops by itself, but instead manufactures devices for other brands such as Acer, Toshiba, or HP.

At the moment, neither manufacturer announced release dates/timeframes or pricing information for their new Chromebooks.
