The next generation school Windows systems from HP will be out in the spring and include the ProBook x360 II G6 Educational Edition, a system that combines security, sturdiness and advanced design. To start, the Windows 10 system’s 11.6-inch screen can flip over the keyboard, transforming it from a traditional notebook into a tablet. Powered by a 10th generation Intel Core i3 or i5 processor, the x360 G6 EE weighs just over 3-pounds yet performs like a bigger system and has passed many of the stringent Mil-Std 810G tests for ruggedness, like being dropped and spilled on. The system has a second-generation Trusted Platform Module (TPM) and its firmware changes are verified and encrypted to avoid being hijacked.
