There is no shortage of Chromebook options these days but we still get a twinkle in our eyes when a new device hits the market. One of the latest machines comes from the Nevada-based company Sector 5. Much like CTL, Sector 5 is an EDU-focused company that produces rugged Chromebooks designed for the rigors of the classroom.
Sector 5 also specializes in assisting schools in setting up and managing devices via the Chrome management console. Along with that, they offer a variety of solutions such as GoGuardian that assists teachers and administrators in managing students digital classroom with real-time views, filters and monitoring.
Their latest Chromebook, the Sector 5 E3, comes equipped with a quad-core Apollo Lake processor (N3450), 4GB RAM and 32GB of eMMC storage.
On the outside, the Chromebook E3 hosts a 180-degree fold-flat design, 11.6″ multi-touch display, 2 each USB-C and USB-A and a MicroSD card slot.
While geared towards education, Sector 5 Chromebooks are available to the general public and you can pick one up directly from their site. Regularly priced at $349, Sector 5 is debuting the Chromebook E3 for $315.
We just got our hands on the E3 and will be putting it through the paces over the next couple of weeks to bring you our thoughts. I had a chance to speak with Sector 5 CEO Erick Kuvshinikov and I can tell you that he is just as passionate about Chrome OS as we are. We’re looking forward to seeing more from these guys as they expand their Chromebook résumé.
