Reviews for the CTL Chromebook NL72

Up Close With The Rugged CTL Chromebook NL72
Source: Chrome Unboxed English
That about wraps things up. The CTL Chromebook NL72 is a solid laptop with many redeeming features but it doesn’t come without some sacrifices. Like many EDU devices, the screen isn’t great but it features a good variety of ports, a great keyboard and trackpad, and enough power to handle the average classroom. The best part about this Chromebook? The price. Comparable Chromebooks in the EDU space are going for nearly $400 and they don’t have that nifty rotating camera. The CTL Chromebook NL72 is currently up for pre-order and early shoppers can get it for the discounted price of $289. That’s some significant savings that could equate to stretching your school’s budget even further than you’d hoped.

This screen diagoal is quite large for tablets but small for subnotebooks. Some convertibles are also represented with that size.

Large display-sizes allow higher resolutions. So, details like letters are bigger. On the other hand, the power consumption is lower with small screen diagonals and the devices are smaller, more lightweight and cheaper.
