Dell Offers New Interactive Laptop, Projector And Mobile Cart Combo Aimed At Education

Dell recently launched an all new laptop line specifically built for use in the school systems. This new series, known as the Latitude 13 Education Series, was also unveiled next to an all new multitouch-enabled interactive projector and a new mobile cart.

The projector is known as the Dell Interactive Projector- S520 and offers a wireless display along with multitouch interaction. This allows for multiple users to share and collaborate simultaneously and since Dell has stated that as many as 10 different users can use the device at one time, it makes it perfect for a classroom setting.

An included whiteboard allows users to draw or annotate with their fingers, a stylus or a dry-erase marker, giving you a variety of interaction methods. In addition to that, the device also supports Intel WiDi with Miracast for wireless display through Windows, Android and iOS devices while standard 802.11 a/b/g/n WiFi is also supported.

Other features included on this device are:
  • Single-chip, 0.65-inc DLP
  • Native 1,280 x 800 WXGA resolution
  • 3,100 lumen output
  • Native 2,200:1 contrast ratio
  • 0.35 throw ratio with screen sizes up to 100" diagonally from less than 3ft
  • 2GB internal flash memory for file storage
Inputs include HDMI, dual RGB, USB-B, S-Video, composite video and microphone for audio. As far as outputs are concerned you're looking at RGB and audio jacks for both Stereo and Mono. In addition to all that there are networking and control ports in the form of LAN (RJ-45) dual-USB-B, USB-A, and RS-232 along with the wireless connectivity.

The Latitude Education 13 Series of laptops come with 13.3" screens with optional touchscreens that feature Corning Gorilla Glass NBT. The screens open up in 180 degrees, which is supposed to reduce stress on the hinges should students use the laptops in unconventional configurations.

The mobile cart can house up to 30 laptops for charging and also supports secure storage, updating and transportation. There are also features for heat management and power management along with a Dell PowerConnect 3548 48-port managed Ethernet switch with cabling.

Classrooms and schools will definitely benefit from this bundle from Dell, especially schools that are trying to utilize more and more technology in the classroom. The overall price is $3,999 with a release date aimed at mid-May. Upgrading previous models will run around $799.
