Acer might have introduced two new Chromebooks that target the educational segment, but this does not mean that they are alone in such an endeavor. Computer manufacturer HP too, knows that this could be a potentially lucrative market, which is why they have squarely revealed another two models of notebooks in the 11” mould which too, will target the education market. These two notebooks would be the HP ProBook 11 Education Edition and the HP Stream 11 Pro, where the former would be a durable Windows notebook complete with a rubber case, while the latter happens to be an affordable notebook that is meant to see action in the classroom.
Apart from that, HP has also announced plans to roll out Education Edition versions of its spanking new 10” Android and Windows tablets, now how about that for a complete package, giving a little bit of something for everyone? The HP ProBook 11 will arrive with the option to throw in a touchscreen display – with additional dough, of course, as well as support for processors up to an Intel Core series chip.
As for the HP Stream 11 Pro, this will be an education-oriented version of HP’s $199 notebook which rolled out late last year. It will feature an 11.6” display at 1366 x 768 pixel resolution, 2GB RAM, 32GB of internal memory, and an Intel Celeron 2840 Bay Trail processor. [Press Release]
