Lenovo Launches Rugged Laptop for K-12 Education

The ThinkPad X130e boasts a reinforced cover and hinges for durability while providing fast processing power and easy portability, at less than four pounds.

Lenovo has launched the ThinkPad X130e, a new ruggedized laptop for education in K-12. Equipped with reinforced and extra durable rubber top cover, keyboard, and hinges, the ThinkPad X130e is designed to be handled by children.

The 11.6-inch lightweight ultraportable (weighing less than four pounds) has the processing performance students need for assignments requiring multitasking, with choices of the AMD Fusion E-300 and E-450 or the Intel second generation Core i3-2367M ULV processors. Users can also choose between AMD Radeon or Intel HD-powered graphics for multimedia-intensive lessons.

The battery is designed to last up to 8.5 hours — more than a whole school day. With a low-light webcam for connecting to other students, and Instant Resume to allow them to stay connected to Wi-Fi from class to class, students are able to thrive in a digital learning environment. HDMI and VGA out allows students to present their reports with a projector or big screen TV.

Other features include:

  • Lenovo’s RapidBoot technology – the computer starts in fewer than 20 seconds
  • Rescue and Recovery and Access Connections decrease calls to IT support
  • Custom colors
  • Asset tagging services to keep track of PCs
