Though first known as an educational line of computers, the 2go PC name is quickly becoming popular with professionals, and for good reason. Just because they’re great in the classroom doesn’t mean they should stay there. Those in healthcare, home inspection, military, law enforcement, aviation, and with anyone who is part of the mobile workforce will find the 2go PC NL3 Convertible Classmate PC to have all the power, reliability, and ruggedization needed for the demands of their fast-paced work environments.
The NL3 is an upgrade to the previous NL2 and features a swiveling screen that can lie flat as a tablet or twist open to reveal a keyboard when needed. The versatility of this tablet/netbook combo makes it ideal for mobile professionals whose jobs involve both taking notes anytime, anywhere and using a keyboard to type longer reports back at the office. Handwriting recognition software saves valuable time normally spent typing written notes, and with a keyboard that is only 90% the size of a standard keyboard, the NL3 is just as user friendly for adults as it is for students.
The most significant change to this model is the Intel Atom™ N2600 processor, which allows an impressive 10 hours of battery life (a 40% increase in estimated battery life). Whether it’s in the boardroom, the airport, or the ambulance, the extended battery life will offer greater reliability wherever it’s needed.
But this is just the beginning of the improved features! Storage has been expanded with options as large as a 2.5” 320GB SATA or 128GB SSD hard drives available. There’s more than enough room to store important data and business documents. With up to 2GB DDR3 memory available, running multiple applications at once is no problem. And paired with the Windows 7 operating system, the NL3 has everything you need to run your business from this netbook, be it home inspection or field sales. In addition, this netbook/tablet is ready when you need it. “Rapid Start” technology from Intel® (SSD option only) is an added feature to the NL3 that enables fast resume of about 6 seconds from sleep state. In professions where every second counts, this technology saves valuable time and allows quicker access to internet, data, and applications. “Rapid Start” also increases standby, allowing for approximately 6 days of standby using a 3-cell battery and up to 13 days with a 6-cell battery.
When it comes to durability, the 2go NL3 has increased ruggedization for whatever your fieldwork may bring. It can withstand drops of up to 70cm on hard surfaces and resist up to 200cc of spilled water. A built-in motion detector with an accelerometer shuts down the hard drive to prevent damage in the event of a fall. It also features a shock-mounted scratch- and water-resistant LCD screen, spill-resistant keyboard with antimicrobial protective coating, reinforced corners, and protective rubberized case with removable handle. The chiclet style keyboard is easier to clean, has reinforced keys, and features a quick-release design that makes it simple to access memory, hard-disk drive/flash, and Wi-Fi.
Other features include:
• Thinner, fanless design
• EPEAT ready and designed to be Energy Star 5.0 compliant
• Built-in 2.0 megapixel webcam
• 3G-capable internet connectivity with wireless B/G/N
• Optional one-year parts and labor warranty for peace of mind.
