Dell Computers are Dominant Devices in U.S. K-12 Schools

Press Release
Sep 12, 2017
Stamford, CT, September 12, 2017 — Laptops and Chromebooks from Dell are the most widely used laptops and Chromebooks in U.S. K-12 schools, according to Deployment of Desktops, Laptops & Chromebooks in K-12 Schools 2017, a new report from Simba Information.

“The total installed base of desktops, laptops and Chromebooks in K-12 classrooms increased 13.3% from 2014 to 2016,” said Karen Meaney, a senior analyst in Simba Information’s Education Group. “That growth was driven by a steep increase in the number of Chromebooks, while the number of desktop and laptop computers owned or leased actually declined.”

When asked about the future of classroom computing, a majority of the educators surveyed for Deployment of Desktops, Laptops & Chromebooks in K-12 Schools 2017, believe that Chromebooks and tablets will be the primary classroom devices, with laptops a smaller factor moving forward.
