HP has announced a new convertible laptop aimed just for schools. The company touts the new ProBook x360 Education Edition to be military standard certified to withstand accidental spills and drops by kids, and it is going to be made available worldwide on December 16.

The American tech company claims that the HP ProBook x360 Education Edition is the world's thinnest, yet most rugged 2-in-1 laptop out there. It has a 360-degree hinge to rotate completely into a tablet, or even a tent stand for ease of viewing. Furthermore, there's a dual camera system which uses a 1080p HD camera embedded in the keyboard to let users take video in tablet mode as well.

The 11-inch laptop runs on the latest Windows 10 Anniversary Update and is encased in hard, industrial rubber. The display features optional damage-resistant Corning Gorilla Glass to withstand drops. HP claims that its engineers put the HP ProBook x360 EE through rigorous testing to ensure that it fulfils the MIL-STD 810G standard. The test involved dropping several laptops from an elevation of up to 30 inches to ascertain it durability in school environments.

The keyboard has also been designed keeping in mind the target audience. It is meant to protect the laptop form spills of about 12 ounces of liquid, and the keys are made in a way that it cannot be picked at. It has an inbuilt 'Take a Test' app that introduces modern and secure methods of test-taking. There's also an additional 'Set up School PCs' app so that the teacher can set up devices in three easy steps, even without professional help. It supports digital Pen writing as well, and HP will sell the Active Pen as an additional accessory.

Coming to the specifications, the HP ProBook x360 Education Edition features an 11.6-inch (1366x768 pixels) LED display, and is powered by Intel Celeron or Intel Pentium processor configurations. It offers 8GB of RAM, 64GB of inbuilt storage, and support for a microSD card slot. There are two USB 3.1 ports, one USB Type-C ports, one HDMI 1.4b port, one AC power connector, and one 3.5mm audio jack. The company claims that laptop can stay active for up to 11 hours of school activities and homework.
