Yesterday, Acer unveiled a new convertible Chromebook at the British Education and Training Technology (BETT) Show in London. Dubbed Acer Chromebook Spin 11 (R751T), this portable is a military-grade machine that has been designed specifically for classroom use.

According to the official press release, "students get a ruggedized and easy-to-use device for learning, while school administrators get a cost-effective laptop package for their schools, helping both students and staff to make the most of what modern technology can deliver."

As it usually happens with convertibles that feature a 360-degree hinge, the new Spin 11 can be used in tent, tablet, display, or notebook mode. It has been certified to comply with the U.S. MIL-STD 810G military standard and comes with an Intel Celeron N3450 or N3350 processor, 4/8 GB RAM, 32/64 GB internal eMMC storage, while its connectivity options include 2X2 MIMO WiFi, Bluetooth 4.2, 2XUSB Type-C and 2XUSB 3.0 ports, as well as a microSD slot.

There are no details on pricing and availability public yet. At last, it is good to know that the Chromebook Spin 11 can provide up to 10 hours of battery life and weighs less than 3.1 pounds.

Although I have been writing about new software and hardware for almost a decade, I consider myself to be old school. I always enjoy listening to music on CD or tape instead of digital files and I will not even get into the touchscreen vs physical keys debate. However, I also enjoy new technology, as I now have the chance to take a look at the future every day. I joined the Notebookcheck crew back in 2013 and I have no plans to leave the ship anytime soon.
