HP is ending the year with some 11.6-inch netbooks designed around classroom use. The ProBook benefits from many of the same security features found on EliteBooks like HP BIOSphere Gen4 while having pre-loaded software support for e-readers and classroom projects.

HP has an enormous presence in the business sector and it has been hitting home runs with its well-received consumer Spectre family of flagship laptops. Still, the world's largest PC manufacturer doesn't want us to forget that it also serves educational institutions as well. HP has revealed a trio of Education Edition (EE) laptops today each equipped with HP School Pack 3.5 software designed to enhance classroom learning.

The first system is the 11.6-inch ProBook x360 11 G3 EE convertible equipped with a 6 W Celeron N4100 or Pentium Silver N5000 processor. Its chassis is trimmed with shock-absorbing rubber, a spill-resistant keyboard, and a Gorilla Glass 3 display for improved durability. The IPS display, however, will be limited to 768p.

The next system is the 11.6-inch ProBook x360 11 G4 EE convertible equipped with 5 W Y-class Core m3-8100Y or i5-8200Y processors. Its chassis is otherwise identical to the G3 model above.

Lastly, the 11.6-inch Stream 11 Pro G5 is your classic traditional laptop with the same CPU options as the ProBook x360 11 G3 EE. Color options like blue or green will be made available for certain SKUs to appeal to students.

The ProBook x360 11 G3 EE and Stream 11 Pro G5 will be available next month in December while the ProBook x360 11 G4 EE is not scheduled to launch until early 2019. Starting prices are still unknown for the time being, but be sure to check out the official specs below for more information.

After graduating with a B.S. in environmental hydrodynamics from the University of California, I studied reactor physics to become licensed by the U.S. NRC to operate nuclear reactors. There's a striking level of appreciation you gain for everyday consumer electronics after working with modern nuclear reactivity systems astonishingly powered by computers from the 80s. When I'm not managing day-to-day activities and US review articles on Notebookcheck, you can catch me following the eSports scene and the latest gaming news.
