HP ProBook x360 11 G6 Education Edition coming with Amber Lake-Y Core i3-10110Y and i5-10210Y in March 2020
Back-to-school season may be over, but that isn't going to stop HP from introducing a new lineup of education devices. The HP ProBook x360 11 G5 and x360 11 G6 Education Editions are coming with features and hardware catered to schools and classrooms. These models are updates over the ProBook x360 11 G4 that we reviewed last year.
The most notable features of the new ProBook models are their rugged edges and corners to withstand drops and spills, MIL-STD 810G certification, optional Wi-Fi 6 connectivity, optimization for running STEM applications, and IT-friendly security via HP software tools commonly found on regular ProBook or EliteBook laptops for businesses.
The main differentiator between the ProBook x360 11 G5 and G6 is the CPU. The former runs on Celeron and Pentium CPUs ranging from the N4000 to the N4120 and Silver N5000 to the Silver N5030, respectively. Meanwhile, the G6 SKUs will come with Intel 10th gen Core i3-10110Y and Core i5-10210Y options and up to 256 GB of storage. Chassis and ports are otherwise the same between the two models as shown by their specification sheets below.
The HP ProBook x360 11 G5 EE is now available while the ProBook x360 11 G6 EE will land in March 2020.
