A Chromebook That Is Built Tough For The Demanding Needs of K-12 Education

Tired of everyday accidents or careless students destroying your expensive investment? Now and then, we all get careless and let our devices slip and fall. Water gets in the keyboard, or students end up playing around with their devices and mistreat them.

Many Chromebooks have a hard time surviving mishandling or day to day accidents. Screens break, hinges get destroyed, or the body gets dented. You will be amazed by how tough the NL61 is and how it lets you avoid day to day stress.

Imagine not being terrified every time the Chromebook falls to the floor. This device is specially designed to withstand everyday drops and falls.

It has been arduously tested to resist drops from desks - avoid spending hundreds of dollars replacing screens, cases, and keyboards.

The keyboard is also water resistant. Studies have shown that 87% of laptop liquid damage comes from spills that go through the keyboard. Revolutionary laptop design allows the keyboard to protect the inside from water. This liquid resistant design is taking the computer industry by storm.

All ports and outlets are also reinforced. You know how excited or impatient students can get. With other Chromebooks, a bent charging port can result in expensive repairs. Each port on the rugged NL61 is designed to resist the tough classroom environment.

This Chromebook gives you a jaw-dropping deal on a durable device that can save you hundreds of dollars in repairs. It still has lightning fast processing speeds and minimal loading times. The Powerful Intel® Celeron® processor and 4GB RAM allow large webpages to load quickly, smooth HD video streaming, and complex simulations to run effortlessly.

Hassle-Free Instant Setup The CTL® Education Chromebook saves you time and stress. It is ready to go right out of the box—teachers and students can get it up and running in just a few minutes. You don’t need a tech-expert to help them: they get their own personalized apps, settings, and bookmarks as soon as they log in. Built-in Applications With the Google Apps suite you don’t have to spend thousands of dollars on additional software. Students and teachers will have a wide array of tools from the second they turn their laptops on. They can create and collaborate virtually on presentations, reports, and spreadsheets.

Students can access and share their work anywhere via Google Drive -- everything is backed up in the cloud so they will never lose a file. Teachers are able to monitor student progress and communicate with their class easily.

Chromecast allows teachers to stream presentations, pictures, and videos from their Chromebook straight to a TV for the whole class to see.

Unique Features that Promote Learning The Chromebook is an engaging device built for a dynamic classroom environment.

The rotatable camera and screen allow students to take pictures and videos of anything. Students have the flexibility to move the camera depending on the angle they need. They can zoom in or move away if they are recording a presentation or documenting a bug’s movements.

An integrated microphone rotates with the camera to capture sound clearly and loudly.

The retractable handle helps student avoid dropping their Chromebook. They can “hook” their device to a cubby or locker to keep it secure. A specially designed anti-glare screen reduces students’ eyestrain and helps them stay focused through the day.

The CTL Education Chromebook delivers fast, reliable performance. Students can load content-rich web pages quickly, watch videos instantly, and run graphic-intensive scientific simulations without a problem. Shorter loading screens free up more time for teaching and learning.
