The new CTL NL61T and CTL NL61TX both feature a rugged design and will hit the market in mid-September, starting at $269 USD and $299 USD.

Earlier this week, Oregon-based CTL unveiled two new Chromebooks with touchscreen and a rugged design. Dubbed NL61T and NL61TX, these machines are both powered by the quad-core Intel Celeron N3160 processor and have an autonomy of up to 14 hours on a single charge.

CTL NL61T is, basically, the CTL NL61 with a touchscreen display. It starts at $269 USD and features 4 GB DDRL 1600 MHz, two USB 3.0 ports, Intel Dual Band WiFi/Bluetooth 802.11 AC 3265, a carry handle, rotating camera and a rugged design that can handle drops up to 2.3 feet.

On the other hand, the CTL NL61TX has the same specs and features as the NL61T, only that it comes with a pressure-resistant cover that can be used as a whiteboard as well. According to CTL, "With reinforced corners and the ultra-protective cover that shields from pressure, this extra rugged Chromebook is 90% less likely to break due to force from the top." Its price tag reads $299 USD.

These two new CTL Chromebooks are scheduled to hit the market in mid-September.

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.
