Google and Dell Unvieled Chromebook Enterprise Laptops
The new systems offer multi-layered security and allow IT admins to easily provision, monitor and lock down devices.

Google and Dell unveiled the first Chromebook Enterprise devices in the Dell Latitude 5300 2-in-1 Chromebook Enterprise and the Dell Latitude 5400 Chromebook Enterprise on Monday. The new Dell Latitude Chromebook Enterprise devices go on sale starting at $699 for the Latitude 5400 and $819 for the Latitude 5300.

Google said the new systems offer multi-layered security to protect against threats and allow IT admins to easily provision, monitor and lock down devices while ensuring regular and controlled updates with Dell Technologies Unified Workspace. 

The new Dell Latitude Chromebooks are configurable with 10 localized language keyboards in 50 countries and come backed by 24/7 year-round Dell ProSupport alongside Chrome Enterprise support.

Dell is the first OEM to partner with Google on the Chromebook Enterprise initiative but others will eventually join the fray. “This is not an exclusive with Dell,” said John Solomon, vice president of Chrome OS at Google, in an interview with The Verge.
