The Lenovo Chromebook 500e 3rd Generation is a laptop and a tablet! 


Students will receive a Chromebook, charger and a rechargeable Pen. 


When not using the Chromebook, just close the lid.  There is no need to shut down.

There is a "garage" to keep your rechargeable pen safe when you are not using it.  The pen also charges while in the garage.

There are multiple ports on both sides of the Chromebook such as Power, Volume, USB-A, HDMI, USB-C, mic/audio jack and a MicroSD card reader.




There are two cameras on your Chromebook;  A "front-facing" camera at the top of the screen and a "world-facing" camera near the keyboard.







The front-facing camera also has a built-in privacy shutter.  If the privacy shutter is moved to the right, the camera can be used.  If you see a light, the camera is in use by an application.  If the privacy shutter is moved to the left, the camera is covered and cannot be used.  You will see a red dot covering it.
