Hardware, Embedded Systems "Meet the new ThinkPad X131e Chromebook: A fast booting, highly customizable laptop PC built with rugged features for the daily rigors of K-12 education. The ThinkPad X131e Chromebook simplifies software and security management for school administrators and provides students and teachers with quick access to thousands of apps, education resources and storage." Lenovo is the third OEM to jump into ChromeOS. Chromebooks have been doing well on Amazon, apparently, too. Android tablets, iPads, the Mac, and now Chromebooks - it must be rainy in Redmond.

Technically, it always rains in Redmond. ;)

Glad to see this alternative operating system is ( relatively ) thriving! I don't know how great it is for school though. As a visual impaired individual that has always used a laptop in school I must say Microsoft's OneNote is excellently tailored to a student's needs. But, than again, as a European I have no idea what K-12 education is anyways.
