Acer today unveiled the TravelMate Spin B1 convertible Windows 10 laptop. The device is unlike any other and is built with education and the classroom in mind (via Windows Central.)

Along with a shock-absorbing rubber frame, and a spill-resistant keyboard, the TravelMate Spin B1 features a 360-degree hinge which allows for the keyboard to be folded back fully into a tablet mode so it’s flat against the display.  Powered by a Intel Pentium processor and Windows 10 Pro, the device packs an 11.6-inch pressure resistant screen – with options for HD or Full HD.

Of course, a chiclet keyboard, precision touchpad and a stylus which supports Windows Ink are also included on this device. The fairly underpowered processor, however, means that the TravelMate Spin B1 will pack an estimated 13 hours of battery life, which is great for the classroom.

Pricing and other specifications are not immediately available, but Acer notes that the device will go on sale in the U.S. and Canada in the second quarter of 2017. As always, let us know what you think of this device by dropping us a comment below!
