The laptop maker, HP has introduced a suite of laptops including an HP Chromebook. The company has branded them as the Fortis series. The laptops are mainly built for students engaged in digital learning.
The laptops are built with durability in mind to withstand the damages. "Built for active and mobile learners, the new HP Fortis portfolio embodies the strength and durability needed to help withstand drops, resist spills, and keep keys where they belong. The textured surfaces make it easier for students of all ages to grip and handle the lightweight devices. The full-skirted anchored keyboards prevent keys from being removed when students are fidgeting and may want to pick at them during class," mentions the HP blog.
" With more students going back to the classroom, it’s important to keep devices clean. The keyboard also resists spills up to 350 ml/11.8 oz.1. The chassis, keyboard, and display for the devices can be wiped down using commonly available household disinfecting and cleaning wipes. For enhanced safety and protection, the devices feature a new metal shield that helps protect the battery from external damage from daily drops or tumbles," added the tech giant.
Here are the new HP Fortis laptops for study and work:
