CTL has revealed its J5 Rugged Convertible Chromebook, and just like its name suggests, this device was designed with durability in mind. That’s why it features a drop-resistant body as well as a splash-resistant keyboard, which makes it ideal for school use. Naturally, professionals who usually work in rugged environments might also want to consider buying this gadget especially since it offers the versatility of a Chromebook as well as the portability of a tablet. Thanks to a 360-degree hinge, the user can choose to use the regular keyboard in “laptop mode” or to fold it completely and angle the screen back for presentation purposes.
Apparently, this Chromebook can also be transformed into a tablet by rotating its screen all the way around, and there’s even an optional stylus available. The IPS panel screen measures 11.6” and offers a resolution of 1366 x 768. The device is powered by an Intel Braswell N3050 processor complemented by 4GB of LPDDR3 RAM. Moreover, the 16GB eMMC hard drive is expandable to 32GB while the connectivity options include one Micro SD card slot, one HDMI port, two USB 3.0 ports and one combo audio jack. The operating system is Chrome OS, obviously, and the battery can last up to 10 hours.
The CTL J5 Rugged Convertible Chromebook features a price tag of $249.00, and it is currently available for pre-order.
