The recently announced Dell Chromebook 5000 series will hit the market next month with the Chromebook 5190 as the debut device. This Chrome OS-powered notebook for education sports a rugged design and is expected to start at US$289.

Dell has just announced the Chromebook 5000 series for the education market, also revealing that the 11-inch Chromebook 5190 will hit the market next month. As it usually happens with the products destined to spend their time in the classroom, the Dell Chromebook 5000 series has to be ready to face a wide range of hazards, mainly drops and liquid spills.

According to Dell, the Chromebook 5190 is available in clamshell and 2-in-1 convertible form factors. These 11-inch Chrome OS-powered compact notebooks feature a rugged design and promise to deliver more than 13 hours of autonomy on a single charge.

Speaking of the ruggedness of these portables, it should be enough to mention that Dell is the first Chromebook manufacturer to claim its devices can handle no less than 10,000 micro-drops (4-inch drops performed at multiple angles). The chassis of the Chromebook 5000 series can survive 48-inch drop tests and 30-inch drops onto steel. Obviously, these machines also include scratch-resistant displays, reinforced hinges, and spill-resistant keyboards.

Returning to the technical specs, unfortunately there is not much to add at this time. For now, Dell only mentioned "dual-core and quad-core Intel Celeron processors" and USB Type-C connectivity, as well as EMR pen support. The hardware configurations available for purchase starting at just US$289 will be revealed next month at launch, so stay tuned.

Although I have been writing about new software and hardware for almost a decade, I consider myself to be old school. I always enjoy listening to music on CD or tape instead of digital files and I will not even get into the touchscreen vs physical keys debate. However, I also enjoy new technology, as I now have the chance to take a look at the future every day. I joined the Notebookcheck crew back in 2013 and I have no plans to leave the ship anytime soon.
