Have you heard the news? CTL is on tour with Mimicking Birds, a rock group based out of Portland Oregon.
CTL Chromebook J41’s is designed for use in classroom settings, but we decided to up the ante in durability testing and sent four on tour to SXSW and beyond with rock band, Mimicking Birds. The J41 is CTL’s newest Chromebook addition, having launched last month, it is a zippy sleek addition to the J-series Chromebook with soft touch surface and the new Apollo Lake processor.
The CTL Chromebook J41 is also built tough with a water-resistant keyboard which channels spills away from internal hardware, a must have when literal bumps in the road could spell disaster while attempting to drink water and work on the device. Another road-worthy feature is the slim, anti-slip, drop-resistant design. The lightweight slim body is design to get a grip, and if the tight quarters of life on the road mean the nearly inevitable tumble, the J41 has reinforced protection around the corners of the unit.
We know that keeping touch with loved ones over Hangouts and email, and having a device to do it that you don’t have to be constantly worried about it important on the road, making the J41 a great options for touring bands. This also means if we here at CTL have faith enough in sending our devices on the road with a rock band, that they’ll stand up to the test in a classroom setting.
CTL CEO, Erik Stromquist said of the tour, “We felt that if our Chromebooks can survive a road tour, SXSW, and 8 concerts in 8 different cities, they could survive the classroom.”
The tour has also been garnering attention with a write up today in Chrome Unboxed on the traveling J41 Chromebook.
