Dell and Google Partner to Create Corporate Computer

A new enterprise laptop on the market will rival current enterprise devices by Microsoft.

Tech giants Dell and Google have partnered to create a Chromebook with increased security and features geared towards businesses. The new laptop is called the Dell Latitude 5400 Chromebook Enterprise and a separate model is also available known as the Dell Latitude 5300 2-in-1 Chromebook Enterprise. 

Appearance and Operating Features

The laptops are based on existing models of Dell’s Latitude laptops, the only difference being that they run on Chrome OS. Their color is black and the 5400 model has a 14-inch screen while the 5300 2-in-1 has a 13-inch screen. They are leading the market as the first Chromebooks to offer up to 32 GB of DDR4 RAM and enterprise-level SSDs with 1 TB of storage.

They were designed with corporate IT departments in mind with added layers of security and the ability to better manage the devices in a corporate setting. Some of the features include:

  • Google Admin console for Chrome OS
  • 24/7 Dell ProSupport and Chrom Enterprise Support
  • Ability to add G Suite and Drive Enterprise 

The Admin console has faster load times and allows admins to implement a Linux environment. This means they can grant access to specific users and offer VPN support for internal files, putting more control in the hands of the IT professionals at the office. Employees for IT in a company will be able to oversee all of the Chromebooks. The G Suite and Drive Enterprise will let employees use Google Docs, Sheets, and Slides without an internet connection. 

Physical and Developmental Cost

These devices are already available for purchase on the market starting at $699 for the 5400 and $819 for the 5300 2-in-1. The Vice President of Chrome OS at Google stated in an article that this is not an exclusive deal with Dell and that they will be working more broadly to find new enterprise partner. 

Corporations will have to make the call if they want to purchase multiple devices for their office. While articles state that people who bring their own devices to work are more comfortable working and cut down on costs, there are several risks that come with not having an internal network. Privacy of business’ data as well as the employee’s data, lack of network security for outside devices, and incompatible operating systems. 

While there are pros and cons to each, Dell and Google’s new partnership is the beginning of a new option for corporate devices other than Microsoft.
