Chromebooks are definitely popular in schools and for good reason. Small, easy to use, a lightweight OS, and a relatively affordable price point, it’s easy to see why. However, not everyone is a fan of Chrome OS. For those who prefer Windows 10, there is an alternative coming soon for the classroom: the Dynabook E10.

Affordably priced, the Dynabook E10 is designed for remote and hybrid learning with its 11.6-inch screen size, slip-resistant design, and protective rubber bumpers. Weighing 2.5lbs, it is just over three-quarters of an inch thick. The spill-resistant keyboard also makes it a perfect choice for students.
“The Dynabook E10 is the perfect addition to our portfolio of education-focused laptops and at 11.6-inches it is ideal for the ever-evolving needs of modern learning, and it offers affordability without compromising the Windows 10 experience.”Philip Osako, vice president, marketing and engineering, Dynabook Americas, Inc.
Powered by an Intel Celeran N4020 processor, Intel UHD Graphics, a 128GB SSD, 4GB of RAM, and Windows 10 Pro Education, students will be able to run most Windows 10 applications required for learning. The HD webcam, stereo speakers, headphone jack, and dual-beam forming microphone also makes it a great unit for remote learning.
