NComputing launches Chromebook CX110 and Chrome app

Today NComputing launches the Chromebook CX110 and Chrome app, providing the ability to run Windows applications on Chromebooks. NComputing Chromebooks, with the vSpace client, now provides multi-user access to the Windows, Java or Silverlight applications often necessary for learning and testing applications.

vSpace software provides a centrally managed, scalable solution that delivers as many as one hundred individual Windows desktops from one computer.

Key features of the NComputing Chromebook CX110 with vSpace include:

  • 11.6" IPS LCD panel - to provide the best Chromebook viewing experience for students in the classroom.
  • Less than 10 seconds to go from off to full-speed
  • Built-in security helps keep students safe from viruses, malware and other computer “nasties”
  • High-performance quad-core CPU with long battery life that lasts up to 8.5 hours
  • Updates are automatic
  • vSpace Client for Chromebook - a Chrome app that can be installed from the Chrome Web Store, which gives users access to a virtualized Windows desktop and comes with a one-year free license to vSpace virtualization software (MSRP: $50)
  • “Sandboxed” kiosk mode - prevents students exiting testing applications, so students will no longer be able to search the internet to find answers during tests
  • Premium Education content - Free one-year subscription to with access to over 6,000 HD video lessons in Math, Science, English and AP subjects plus ACT prep (MSRP: $179)

NComputing Chromebook is available for the North American education market through authorized NComputing resellers with an MSRP starting at $199, including a one-year subscription to vSpace Client for Chromebook and NComputing will begin accepting pre-orders on May 12 with product availability in June.
