Intel-powered Chromebook ™

Your best choice for the classroom

Spend less time waiting, more time learning

Today's students want fast, responsive electronic devices with a long battery life — if the device they use to do school work takes too long to load something and forces them to constantly worry about battery life, it can be hard to keep them focused and engaged. They want to pick up their device, get going right away, and move from one thing to another quickly and easily.

Teachers want this too — the less time their students spend waiting for the devices to open an app or document, the sooner they can start learning and the more likely they are to be engaged.

As more Chromebook models enter the market, it's becoming harder for schools to choose the right one. In late 2013, a Principled Technologies Test Report, commissioned by Intel®, found that an Intel processor-powered Chromebook performed better than an ARM processor-based Chromebook in every scenario tested.

There's less waiting and more learning with the right Chromebook

57 percent longer battery life:
In testing both Intel-powered and ARM-processer-based models while lightly browsing the Internet, the Intel-powered Chromebook lasted an additional 4 hours and 5 minutes without a charge.

46 percent less waiting to read:
Both models were tested on the amount of time spent waiting during seven tasks involving reading a textbook and taking notes online. The ARM-based Chromebook took 76 seconds to accomplish what the Intel-powered model did in 41 seconds.

47 percent less waiting to do math:
Both models were tested on the amount of time spent waiting during seven tasks involving doing math homework online. The ARM-based model took 68 seconds to accomplish what the Intel-powered one did in 36 seconds.

50 percent less waiting to create a presentation:
Both models were tested on the amount of time it took to complete eight tasks when creating an English presentation. The ARM-based model took 70 seconds to accomplish what the Intel-powered one did in 35 seconds.

45 percent less waiting to team up in class:
Both models were tested on the amount of time spent waiting during six tasks when teaming up in science class. The ARM-based Chromebook took 63 seconds to accomplish what the Intel-powered model did in 34 seconds.

This report card is clear:
With the Intel processor-powered Chromebook, students can get to learning faster, waste less time waiting, and stay learning longer. So the Intel-powered Chromebook is the better choice for schools.

Chromebooks for Education

Chromebooks for Education give students, teachers, and administrators a simple solution for fast, intuitive and easy-to-manage computing. Chromebooks provide access to the web's education and collaboration resources, as well as offer centralized management and low total cost of ownership.

Using Chromebooks, teachers spend more time teaching and less time managing classroom technology, and schools can deploy more computers into the hands of their students and teachers.
