Microsoft adds Chemistry to Minecraft, $190 Lenovo laptop
This week at the Bett show in London, @Microsoft made its first education announcements for 2018. The highlights include a @Lenovo #100e #laptop starting at $190, an awesome looking #Chemistry update for @Minecraft: Education Edition and a 10 percent academic discount on @HoloLens (still only in developer kits) through May 31, 2018. While the new durable, Celeron-based Lenovo 100e only costs $190, making the price approachable for schools’ volume buys, it’s not powerful enough to run mixed reality, which is one of the big pushes we’re seeing in education. On the other hand, cheap #Chromebooks aren’t there either.
