New back-to-skool-kool contenders include the TravelMate Spin B3 and Chromebook 712 models, designed for classrooms and the diverse environmental hazards of your backpack.
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.

Like the TravelMate Spin B3, the Chromebook 712 is also compliant with the same MIL-STD 810G military-grade standard to accommodate “even the most energetic students”, and can take up to 60 kilos of smash damage. Try it at home, kids!
