HP Announces The Rugged ProBook x360 11 Education Edition
Today, HP announced their new affordable, durable and functional learning PC - the ProBook x360 11 Education Edition, powered by Windows 10.
In addition to features like a touchscreen that enables Windows Ink, this PC also comes with student-friendly features, including an optional active pen to make math, art, note-taking in OneNote or highlighting in Microsoft Edge easy.
For teachers, great features are built into Windows 10 such as the "Take a Test" app, which includes simple features for modern test-taking. The app creates a browser-based, locked-down environment for more online assessments, for tests that shouldn't have copy/paste privileges, access to files or other distractions. It also includes the "Set up School PCs" app, so a teacher can set up devices in three easy steps, even with no dedicated IT support.
For students, this device has an optional "explorer mode" dual camera system which uses a 1080p HD camera embedded on the keyboard deck to let students take video in tablet mode while viewing what they're recording in real-time.
The device switches easily between four modes, and since students are constantly moving around with their computers, the ProBook x360 11 Education Edition is encased in hard, industrial rubber and its screens feature optional damage-resistant Corning Gorilla Glass.
The HP ProBook x360 11 Education Edition will be available worldwide on Dec. 16.
