HP announces a Windows 10 2-in-1 for schools, the ProBook x360 11 Education Edition

Today, Microsoft and HP announced the ProBook x360 11 Education Edition. As with all of HP's 'x360' devices, the screen can be adjusted into any position that you want, offering four modes: notebook, tablet, stand, and tent.

The company is promising student-friendly features, "including an optional active pen to make math, art, note-taking in OneNote or highlighting in Microsoft Edge easier than ever." It also includes the Take a Test app, which should help teachers to create test-taking environments.

The device is available with different specs, including either an Intel Celeron or Pentium processor, 8GB RAM, and between 64GB and 256GB of internal storage. As one would expect, it ships with Windows 10; while it's offered in Home and Pro, HP recommends Pro for schools.

It's also designed to pass MIL-STD 810G testing, which means that it's salt-, fog-, humidity-, transport shock-, thermal shock-resistant, and more. According to Microsoft, HP dropped hundreds of PCs from a distance of 29.5-inches, which is about the height of a desk in a school.

The device uses dual cameras, so they can be used in any mode, it offers up to 11 hours of battery life, and includes USB 3.1 Type C.
