Google together with Dell recently introduced two new Chromebooks with which Google continues its efforts related to the task of being able to enter the field of laptops equipped with business solutions.
These two new Chromebooks announced by the company They are the Latitude 5400 (14-inch) and the Latitude 5300 2-in-1 (13-inch), which are already available for purchase from the Dell website.
According to initial statements, these are computers that the manufacturer Dell has already made available to companies in the Microsoft solutions set.
The partnership between Google and Dell aims to provide versions with Chrome OS for business. The computers come with a range of cloud-based support services from Dell.
Today, we announced a series of enhancements to our Chrome Enterprise ecosystem with the goal of bringing modern Chrome OS, cloud-first, to more businesses, on reliable hardware they already know and love.
These updates include the first Chromebook Enterprise devices, with an improved management console and new developer-centric features. Together, these updates make the modern operating system more accessible to all businesses.
These allow better control of the deployment operations of these laptops within companies.
Google News Note highlights the availability of tools like VMware Workspace One that facilitate integration with an existing Windows environment. What's more, Google offers a Chrome management console which, according to the company, allows an improvement in loading times.
“These are the only business Chromebooks that can (optionally) upload up to 32GB of RAM and run on the latest 7th Gen Intel Core iXNUMX processors. In fact, with these new Chromebooks, Google and Dell are playing the highly configurable card.
In fact, companies can choose processors ranging from Celerons to Core i7. Google for its part adds that the storage medium can go up to terabytes.
Depending on the configuration and tasks assigned to these devices, the Latitude 2 and 1 5400-in-5300 runtimes can last up to 20 and 14 hours respectively.
The new Latitude 5400 and Latitude 5300 2-in-1 business Chromebooks open up a series that should continue with Dell, but also with other OEMs.
In fact, Google intends to partner with other OEMs to launch other Chromebooks of the same type for businesses.
Basically, the move is meant to push Microsoft into a sector where the company reigns supreme.
The move coincided with the launch of Windows 10 S, a lighter version of Windows 10 designed to compete with Chromebooks and Chrome OS, on low-cost machines released by Microsoft partners.
But, Microsoft's cloud-based variant did not seem to have the expected success. Since the beginning of the previous year, it is no longer considered a standalone operating system.
What must be said is that Microsoft has made it a simple mode of Windows 10, an indicator that the operating system has not lived up to expectations.
In any case, another is that Microsoft continues its efforts not to lose its hand on the path of the cloud-oriented operating system with the Windows Lite initiative.
In any case, The partnership between Google and Dell is an important warning for Microsoft to dominate through Windows.
Let's see how far Google's company is going this time after ditching Chrome OS-based tablet production in the middle of this year.
Google already had all its power in terms of artificial intelligence at the time of this failure. The company continues to leverage this asset to differentiate itself from Microsoft and offer services that can exhaust the companies in its fleet.
Both devices will offer LTE options and a USB-C docking station. Latitude 5400 is available for $ 699. The Latitude 5300 2-in-1 costs $ 819.
These Chromebooks will be available in about 50 countries and the operating system will be available in a dozen languages.
