These inexpensive and versatile subnotebooks will start as low as $250 USD with options for 1080p and 64 GB eMMC storage. Dual-band Intel 9560 wireless comes and USB Type-C charging will come standard similar to many mainstream Ultrabooks.

The Google Chromebook platform had a slow start when it launched back in 2011, but it has since become quite popular in the education space. According to Dell, 80 percent of Gen Z students have a desire to work with cutting-edge technology even though more than half believe that their schools and institutions are ill-prepared to provide them with the necessary tools.

The refreshed 11.6-inch 3100, 11.6-inch 3100 2-in-1, and 14-inch 3400 Chromebooks were designed with this younger generation of students in mind. These systems sport 2x2 Intel WLAN cards and USB Type-C charging with the promise of over six years of Google Auto Updates. The OEM is claiming a battery life of up to 12 to 14 hours depending on the model.

Outside of these Chromebooks, Dell will also offer a new and more powerful 13.3-inch Latitude 3300 Education model for students who may prefer to use Windows. The laptop features USB Type-C charging and a 1080p touchscreen with up to Core i5 processors compared to the passively-cooled Gemini Lake processors in the above Chromebooks.

The Chromebook 3100, 3100 2-in-1, and 3400 will start at $250, $360, and $320, respectively, when they launch in late March. Meanwhile, the Latitude 3300 Education is now shipping for a starting price of $300.

After graduating with a B.S. in environmental hydrodynamics from the University of California, I studied reactor physics to become licensed by the U.S. NRC to operate nuclear reactors. There's a striking level of appreciation you gain for everyday consumer electronics after working with modern nuclear reactivity systems astonishingly powered by computers from the 80s. When I'm not managing day-to-day activities and US review articles on Notebookcheck, you can catch me following the eSports scene and the latest gaming news.
