PC Magazine names the NL61TX one of the Best Chromebooks of 2018

It’s that time again when PC Magazine names the best Chromebooks of the year, and CTL is proud to have once again made the list with the NL61TX Chromebook for Education. The NL61TX was designed with student use in mind, and has become a favorite for education customers since its launch last year.


The NL61TX builds on its predecessor the NL61 and the NL61X. The NL61 has been our most popular Chromebook seeing deployments in classrooms across the US.


What Makes the NL61TX Chromebook a Great Option for Education?


Let’s start with looking at the semi-ruggedized features that come standard on CTL’s NL61, the NL61 Chromebook is drop tested from over 2 feet off the ground and features a water-resistant keyboard. On top of the standard features of the NL61, the NL61TX also features the X-Panel, a panel that fits on the top of the Chromebook allowing for up to 300lbs of weight to be evenly distributed, protecting the unit from 90% of accidents that would usually result in screen breaks. The X-Panel also has a white-board surface which allows for students to doodle or take notes directly on the unit’s surface. The NL61TX also is a touch screen model featuring a 10-point capacitive touchscreen IPS display.


The NL61TX also has up to 12 hours of battery life, making it a great choice for 1:1 solutions as it can last from the first bell all the way through homework. For in class use, the NL61TX has a rotatable webcam which can be converted for use with LabCam microscope adapter and is great for recording lectures and video production.


Weighing under 3lbs, makes this a great option for kids of all ages, and was takes the NL61, a great Chromebook, and makes it even better.
