HP Inc. has announced the HP Chromebook 11 G4 Education Edition (EE) – a durable, lightweight Chromebook designed to meet the needs of students and educators.

HP designed the HP Chromebook 11 G4 EE with a student environment in mind. At 20 mm thickness and just 2.7 pounds, the fanless HP Chromebook 11 G4 EE is the thinnest Chromebook for Education designed to pass MIL-STD testing. With rugged construction accents like co-molded rubber edges, 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 smart features like a 180-degree hinge that allows the Chromebook to lie flat for easy collaboration, as well as an optional IPS panel that provides wide viewing angles, perfect for students working together on a project. And for those Google Hangouts study groups, built-in noise suppression technology makes everything sound good.

Inside, students will find an Intel Celeron processor for fast access to their applications and up to 9.5 hours of battery life. Optional 3G/4G WWAN5 connectivity helps ensure students can connect to the resources they need inside and outside of the classroom.

The HP Chromebook 11 G4 EE is also easy to deploy and manage, thanks to the optional Chrome Management Console. Teachers and administrators can manage policies, apps and OS updates across a fleet of thousands of Chromebooks, all from a web-based admin console. In addition to device management, HP offers configurable color options7 (black and electric green) so administrators can quickly identify and distribute the HP Chromebook 11 G4 EE by grade, class or charging cart.

The HP Chromebook 11 G4 EE is expected to be available in the United States this month starting at $199.
