HP ProBook x360 11 Education Edition, is the latest affordable PC from HP powered by Windows 10.
It is built completely for teachers and students, with the mindset to put technology in every classroom and within everyone’s budget.
It comes with some great built-in features like a touchscreen that enables Windows Ink.
For students there is an optional active pen to make math, art, note-taking in OneNote or highlighting in Microsoft Edge easier than ever. Also, the 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.
“Take a Test” app, enables secure features for modern test-taking for teachers. The app creates a browser-based, locked-down environment for more secure, online assessments, for tests that shouldn’t have copy/paste privileges, access to files or other distractions.
There is also a “Set up School PCs” app, which will help a teacher set up the devices without any support from the IT team.
As for the build, the ProBook x360 11 Education Edition is encased in hard, industrial rubber and its screens feature optional damage-resistant Corning Gorilla Glass.
HP engineers put the computer through its rigorous HP Total Test Process, which involved dropping hundreds of computers from an elevation of 29.5 inches (about the same height as an average school desk). Together with Windows 10, this device is an awesome option for students and teachers.
