CTL Announces Three New NL-Series Chromebooks

CTL Announces Three New NL-Series Chromebooks

CTL is on a roll! First came the CTL Education Chromebook J41, the new sleek and economical update to our J-series. Then came the CTL Chromebox CBx1, the mini-computer that is small in size, but big in power. Now we are so proud to announce three new models in a refresh of their best selling NL-series Chromebooks all designed for use in K12 education. The CTL Chromebook NL7, the CTL rugged touch Chromebook NL7T-360, and the CTL rugged touch Chromebook NL7TW-360 with pen each of which provide a variety of benefits to schools looking to invest in Chromebook Deployments.  

All three education NL-series Chromebook models by CTL feature our most rugged design including an IP41 drop rating, water-resistant keyboards, and reinforced ports, hinges, and power plug. The NL series, which is CTL’s premium line of Education Chromebook, also includes a tuck-away handle for easy carrying, especially useful for carrying from class to class. This series also includes 32GB of storage and a DC-in USB-C Cable.

CTL Improves Ruggedization and Performance in the NL-Series Chromebook


The updated series starts with the CTL Chromebook NL7, a great unit with all the durability that customers have come to expect from CTL products. This unit has been drop tested to70cm, meaning that a drop from the average student’s carrying height won’t spell disaster. The CTL Chromebook NL7 weighs only 2.5 pounds and includes a retractable carrying handle which helps students to easily and safely carry it. The unit also features a flip 180-degree rotatable world-facing HD camera. On the inside the CTL Chromebook NL7 sprints along with the powerful Intel Apollo Lake Processor, 4GB of RAM, and renders stunning graphics on the integrated Intel HD500 graphics processor.

The NL-Series Chromebooks for Education Are More than just Rugged Chromebooks


The CTL touch Chromebook NL7T-360 and CTL Chromebook NL7TW-360 with pen build on the CTL Chromebook NL7’s rugged feature set by incorporating a sturdy 360-degree hinge which allows students the freedom to switch between taking notes in laptop mode to tent mode for viewing educational videos, then to tablet mode for reading and research. In addition to an HD front-facing camera, the units also an additional 5.0-megapixel world-facing tablet-mode camera on bottom shell above the keyboard, allowing students to record lectures or make videos for class assignments when in tablet or tent display. Additionally, the CTL Chromebook NL7T-360 and CTL Chromebook NL7TW-360 are built with rugged Corning Gorilla® glass touch screens, which flex and protect screens from scratching, cracking, and breaking. This new screen glass addresses a common pain point in education where students close the lid with objects, like pens and pencils, still inside the unit when rushing from class to class.

Wacom EMR Pen Changes How You Connect to Your Chromebook


The CTL Chromebook NL7TW-360 features Intel’s quad-core N3450 processor and includes a  Wacom® Stylus EMR Pen, which provides intuitive ease of navigation, perfect for grading papers, annotations, taking notes, design, and general unit operation. The Wacom® Stylus EMR Pen operates without batteries and feels as natural as writing on paper with palm rejection to avoid unintended contact. The CTL rugged Chromebook NL7TW-360 features 10-point capacitive Touchscreen combined with EMR technology to be used with the included stylus, meaning that the screen responds to either finger touch or the EMR stylus, reducing potential screen damage from pencil points or other sharp objects.
