In the post CES lull, Lenovo has taken the opportunity to announce three new Chromebooks designed for the education market, ranging from the entry level 100e, through the 300e to the more premium 500e. Lenovo didn't disappoint, and the new 100e, 300e, and 500e models cover the price points and feature lists of most any school boards budget.

The last new Chromebook is the 100e (above). That's primarily because they all ship with rubber bumpers, reinforced ports & hinges, and stronger keyboards as well. There's no convertible design here, but it still looks like a great option for classrooms. The 100e features a fanless 8th generation dual-core Intel Celeron N3350 processor that promises up to 10 hours of battery life.

At the top of Lenovo's 2018 Educational Chromebook line, the 500e adds some extra features that justify the price bump. "All three include an 11.6" display, though only the 500e and 300e include a touchscreen and convertible form factor, while the 100e has not touch screen and more of a traditional laptop clamshell form factor.

The 300e (above) steps down to a MediaTek MTK 8173C SoC with 4GB of RAM, and one each Type-C and USB 3.0 port. The 300e arrives in February 2018 and has an affordable $279 price. The pressure-sensitive pen is integrated with Chrome and the Chromebook itself with a silo slot built into the body.

The 8th generation quad-core Intel N3450 processor is paired with up to 8GB of RAM and 64GB of storage to meet (and exceed) any performance demands while still offering up to 10 hours of battery power.

Availability for the U.S. has been announced, with the 500e due to launch this month for $349USD, while the 300e will launch next month for $279USD, but you'll have to wait for March for the 100e which will sell for $219USD.
