Dell is now offering the first Chromebooks that come with Chrome Enterprise installed right off the bat. The laptops in question come in two flavours: a 14" clamshell and a 13" 2-in-1.
Both are part of Dell's Latitude lineup. The Dell Latitude 5300 2-in-1 and the Latitude 5400 are both regular enterprise laptops that Dell usually sells with Windows, except retrofitted for Chrome Enterprise instead.
In terms of specs, both feature full HD screens, up to 1TB of storage and 32GB of memory, and 8th-gen i7 processors. They will also have LTE variants, and both feature USB-C. The big draw here, though, is ease of deployment for an organisation's IT department, with easy management through your regular admin tools, such as VMWare Workspace One.
Google's vice president of Chrome OS, John Solomon, also noted that Dell is not the only PC maker that will be rolling out Chrome Enterprise offerings built into its devices. "This is not an exclusive with Dell. We’re launching with Dell first… but in the future, we will be getting back to doing this more broadly with the ecosystem,” said Solomon.
Coming back to the duo from Dell, the Latitude 5400 will run your organisation $699 or more, while the fancier Latitude 5300 2-in-1 starts at $819.
