New CTL Chromebook NL7X is Built Education Tough.

This week we’re in Chicago, IL at ISTE 2018, and we have brought along our newest CTL Chromebook NL7X, this is the newest addition to our line of rugged Chromebooks for education. The NL7X is the updated version of their most popular to date Chromebook the NL6X.

The CTL Chromebook NL7X is an extra-rugged Chromebook featuring the CTL X-Panel. With reinforced corners and pressure-resistant cover the X-Panel withstands up to 365 pounds of pressure to the top shell and has already proved its durability on the NL61X, sure to make the NL7X CTL’s next best-selling Chromebook for education. You may even recall our favorite photo of CTL Warehouse staff standing on top of the NL61X Chromebook with X-Panel. So, yeah, it’s that strong! On top of protecting the Chromebook, the X-Panel also doubles as a whiteboard perfect for taking notes or doodling.

The NL7 Chromebook sold without the X-Panel already brought a lot to the game with its 2.8 pound design, retractable carrying handle, 70cm drop-tested design, water-resistant keyboard, reinforced ports and hinges, and HD world-view camera. Add in the long battery life and new Intel Apollo Lake Dual-Core processor, the NL7 only gets better with the addition of the X-Panel.

The NL7 was released earlier this year as part of the refresh of the NL-series, our best selling line of CTL Chromebooks. We already know the NL7 Series is going to be a new favorite for customers, which is why we knew we had to include the popular X-Panel to this line.

The NL7X also has already caught the attention of Chrome Unboxed where they stated,

“The exclusive “exoskeleton” adds an exterior shell to the already ruggedized Chromebook that is tested to withstand up to 365 pounds of downward pressure on the lid.
That’s a pretty impressive feat and one that gives CTL a major edge over other EDU devices. In environments where Chromebooks see the most extreme wear and tear, the X-Panel could prove to be a powerful tool in reducing the costs of repairs and replacements that school districts must digest each year."

We know that making an investment in tech devices for 1:1 deployment in education should be an investment that lasts, and one that isn’t bogged down with damaged devices, so we make our Chromebooks built to last, and back that up with our Fast Track for Education program which guarantees a 5 day turnaround and free 2 way RMA shipping. Something that you won’t find through any other Chromebook resellers.

If you’re going to be at ISTE 2018 this week, stop by booth 950 and see all our new Chrome devices in person! We may even let you stand on the NL7X!

The NL7X is available at CTL.net for purchase immediately, and is eligible for special education pricing and CTL’s Fast Track service for qualified education customers. For more information on pricing contact a CTL sales rep at sales@ctl.net
