TX District Selects Dell Chromebook 11

The New Caney Independent School District in Texas has chosen the Dell Chromebook 11 to help its 11,000 students from third through twelfth grades develop digital skills. The District underwent an extensive evaluation process, engaging a group of students in providing feedback on multiple Chromebook models and instituting their own testing by dropping devices to assess their sturdiness.

“For us, battery life was key because with a classroom full of devices, students and teachers shouldn’t worry about power outlets or disrupting class to charge a device,” said Dustin Hardin, Technology Director for New Caney ISD. “The Dell Chromebook 11 has no problem lasting through an entire school day and its Intel ‘Haswell’ processor gives it a performance boost that is noticeably better than other models.”
