With up to 12 hours of battery life and a MIL-STD 810H-certified rugged design, the Acer TravelMate Spin B3 convertible promises to deliver all that classroom use requires. This Windows 10-powered portable will hit China in February, EMEA in Q2, and North America in April, with prices starting at US$329.99.

Earlier today, Acer announced a new convertible with military-grade durability that was designed specifically for classroom use. According to the official press release, the new TravelMate Spin B3 (TMB311R-32) "features a Full HD webcam and blazing-fast Intel® Wi-Fi 6, providing students with everything they need to succeed in interactive or virtual classrooms that make heavy use of media-based teaching materials."

For now, there are no specifics regarding the hardware specs, since Acer has only mentioned that this convertible is driven by "up to the latest Intel Pentium Silver processors" and also revealed some connectivity- and design-related details. In addition to the aforementioned webcam and Wi-Fi 6 support, there is also optional 4G LTE, an optional Wacom AES pen, full-function USB 3.2 Gen 1 Type-C, HDMI, RJ45 Ethernet, as well as an optional BPR and EPA-compliant silver-ion antimicrobial agent in the keyboard's coating, touchpad, and palm rest surface that ensures a high microbial reduction rate.

The Acer TravelMate Spin B3 (TMB311R-32) can withstand up to 60 kg (132.289 pounds) of downward force and it complies with the MIL-STD 810F standard for protection from sand and dust. 

The specifications and availability will vary by region, but Acer has already revealed the launch dates and starting prices. This portable will hit North America in April with a starting price of US$329.99, while China will get it in February, and the EMEA region should receive it in Q2.

In my early school days, I hated writing and having to make up stories. A decade later, I started to enjoy it. Since then, I published a few offline articles and then I moved to the online space, where I contributed to major websites that are still present online as of 2021 such as Softpedia, Brothersoft, Download3000, but I also wrote for multiple blogs that have disappeared over the years. I've been riding with the Notebookcheck crew since 2013 and I am not planning to leave it anytime soon. In love with good mechanical keyboards, vinyl and tape sound, but also smartphones, streaming services, and digital art.
