XMA introduces Viglen Chromebook 11
British IT solutions provider XMA, home of the Viglen PC brand, today unveiled their own-brand Chromebook - the Viglen Chromebook 11. Drawing on their extensive experience in working with UK schools to deliver one to one learning programmes, XMA is bundling support and access to Google’s device management solution with the Chromebook 11 while maintaining a price that’s affordable to schools - just £169 ex VAT.

“We know that having one to one access to affordable technology is one tool schools have to better prepare their students for 21st century learning and digital literacy. Chromebooks make it possible for any school or local authority with internet to go one to one and we think at only £169, the Viglen Chromebook 11 will enable and accelerate many more of these projects”, said Nicholas Cox, XMA Google Product Manager.

Viglen Chromebook 11 is an instant-on notebook computer with security built-in, long battery life, the best of Google included and access to thousands of apps in the Chrome Web Store, many designed for education and often free.

XMA has been supporting schools across the UK in deploying technology that enhances learning and teaching. Their allLearn programme offers schools a framework that covers all considerations for deployment, including finance packages, professional development delivered by teachers and options to install or improve wireless, device management and storage infrastructure. This experience and the trend in schools “Going Google” led XMA to develop their own device.

"We’re always working to make Chromebooks the perfect laptop for schools – shareable, secure, fast and easy to manage. By adding the Viglen Chromebook to the array of devices already available we are giving students and teachers more choices at even more affordable prices" said Liz Sproat, Head of Education EMEA, Google.

Emma Fish of Google’s Education Global Partner Program Team said, "We are excited about this next step in our partnership with XMA. As a Google for Education Premier Partner in the UK, XMA has helped hundreds of schools become more collaborative with Google Apps for Education, and enjoy easy to manage devices through the online Google Admin Console.”

“XMA’s team have been instrumental in supporting our Chromebook deployment in school. They have offered advice, support and helped us build a community of likeminded peers with whom we now share best practice. I wish them well with the launch of their own Chromebook”, Luke Scott, IT Manager for the Lion Academy Trust.

The Viglen Chromebook 11 is available Monday July 13th, exclusively from XMA. For further details and to pre-order, contact 01727 201 820 or email google@xma.co.uk.
