Google Partners With Dell To Launch Two Enterprise Chromebooks
Partnership with device manufacturers is one of Google’s most efficient plays with the company’s endeavor to get Chromebooks into more places.
Because of this, the educational sector isn’t the only marketplace that the company has in its sight as the company is reading yet another partnership the Dell to bring the Dell Latitude 5300 2-in1 and the Dell Latitude 5400 to enterprise customers.
Google has made life a lot easier for businesses that use Chromebooks as they can add the new Chrome Enterprise Upgrade and make use of the new Google Admin console for Chrome OS.
The new admin console –backed by Dell’s Unified Workspace program in the new devices– is said to provide 10-times faster load times and gives IT heads a plethora of tools like the ability to manage Linux environments on Chromebooks. This allows them to grant access to specific users as well as offer VPN support for internal files.
This will greatly reduce the workloads of IT professionals as they can manage the fleet company Chromebooks directly through the cloud.
The devices born through this partnership are said to both feature 8th-generation Intel Core i7 CPUs and will be the first offerings to offer up to 32GB of DDR4 RAM and of up to 1TB of enterprise-class SSDs for fast and ample storage.
The Latitude 5300 2-in-1 Chromebook Enterprise features a standard 13.3-inch display combined with a 1080p touch panel and the Latitude 5400 Chromebook Enterprise starts with a 14-inch, 1366 x 768-pixel panel. The latter also comes with an option for a 1080p version.
The Chromebooks seem to pack an impressive spec sheet but until real-world applications are tested and actual organic benchmarks revealed, it is too early to expect either the Dell Latitude 5300 or the Latitude 5400 to have seismic impacts on a market firmly under Apple and Microsoft’s thumb.
