acer: This Monday (17), acer has announced that it acer TravelMate B3 and acer TravelMate Spin B3 notebooks get Windows 11 SE. The educational version of the cloud-based operating system was unveiled in November 2021, with the aim of providing an inclusive and accessible experience for school environments.
Both devices have military certification, the MIL-STD 810H, with shock-absorbing shock absorbers — enabling them to withstand up to 60kg of downward force and drop up to 1.22m high, the brand said. Notebooks still have a decent battery, which allows them to be used for up to 10 hours.
With smart features, the devices include an Intel Wi-Fi 6 (Gig+) chip with 2×2 MU-MIMO technology, which aids connectivity in multi-user environments, and optional 4G LTE for when students are away from the router. Teachers can still check the battery level through the lid of the device, so they know when it needs to be charged.
