TRAVELMATE SPIN B3

This new TravelMate features Wacom AES touchscreen tech, multiple connectivity ports including HDMI to hook up an external monitor, and a convertible design so you can flip it over or even prop it up in “tent mode” if your desk space is limited. For extra XP, its impact-resistant build is compliant with US military-grade standard MIL-STD 810G, with rubber bumpers and reinforced corners.

Local availability is expected in April.
