ASUS has made some of the best all-around Chromebooks over the years. Just over a year ago, the company released the Chromebook Flip C302CA, a $ 499 model competing with the Samsung Chromebook Plus/Pro.

Dell’s 5000 Series is the company’s latest attempt to cash in on that lucrative market, with a rugged design perfect for use in education.
Dell has plenty of experience building durable computers (like the Latitude 12 tablet that can be sprayed with water jets), and it’s bringing some of that expertise to the 5000 Series.
