Most of their Chrome OS-driven portables aim the education market, offering decent specs in sturdy builds that come for a very good price. Their latest release is known as CTL J5 and uses a 360-degree hinge like the Lenovo Yoga lineup and many others.

CTL J5 rugged convertible Chromebook has the following specs and features:

  • Processor: Intel Celeron N3050

  • Display: 11.6-inch IPS multitouch with 1,366X768 pixels

  • Operating system: Chrome OS
  • Dimensions: 11.5X8.22X0.88 inches

Since it targets the education market, the CTL J5 has a splashproof keyboard and can handle moderate drops. Its standard one-year warranty can be extended to 3 years. This convertible is in stock and can be purchased already from CTL for $249 USD.

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.
