About last year ago, Acer has launched the Spin line of two-in-one convertible laptop, which offering users the option of using computer laptop with 13 or 14 inch display in traditional laptop and tablet modes.
Now the Acer is bringing Spin design to its TravelMate line of laptops, which are typically aimed at business and education markets.
Acer has revealed the Acer TravelMate Spin B1, a rugged two-in-one convertible laptop built for the education purpose. The main idea behind that to sustain the potential rigors of classroom use, the notebook packs a pressure-resistant screen and a spill-resistant keyboard. The device can also withstand a bump or two thanks to its rubber bumper.
The laptop features an 11.6 inch screen with sports a Full HD or HD touch screen for intuitive operations and engagement with WebPages and apps. The TravelMate Spin B1’s display moves on a 360-degree hinge so the notebook can transition between laptop, stand, tablet or tent modes.
The notebook’s middle is wrapped in a shock-absorbent rubber frame to protect the laptop against drops, and its pressure-resistant screen can survive frontal impact of up to 60 units of kilogram-force kgf. The device can also withstand a bump or two thanks to its rubber bumper.
The laptop’s Chiclet-style keyboard is protected against spills of up to 330mL of water, owing that resistance to what Acer called it, a “unique gutter system” underneath.
Acer said that the TravelMate Spin B1 will offer up to 13 hours of battery life, making it great for a full day of school with time left over for homework. We look forward to testing this claim with the Laptop Mag Battery Test.
Acer hasn’t ready to talk hardware specifications just yet – instead, specs will announce sometime in quarter to 2017, which is when Acer plans to launch this beast for “educational and commercial” customers.
