HP Inc. today announced the HP Chromebook 11 G4 Education Edition (EE).
At 20 mm thick and 2.7 pounds, the fanless HP Chromebook 11 G4 EE is the thinnest rugged Chromebook for Education designed to pass MIL-STD testing. The device passes HP’s 70 cm drop test to help protect it from occasional bumps with lockers and drops from desks.
The spill-resistant keyboard helps keep the Chromebook safe from water-related accidents and includes features like a 180-degree hinge that allows the Chromebook to lay flat, as well as an optional IPS panel that provides wide viewing angles. Built-in noise suppression technology is also included.
The HP Chromebook 11 G4 EE can be managed with the optional Chrome Management Console . Teachers and administrators can manage policies, apps and OS updates across thousands of Chromebooks from a web-based admin console.
Pricing and availability
The HP Chromebook 11 G4 EE is expected to be available in the United States in January 2016 starting at $199.
