You might not be able to equate military operations with middle school but that’s not stopping HP from making this comparison to sell its new laptop. HP has announced the ProBook x360 Education Edition today. While it’s more or less similar to an entry-level convertible laptop, what sets it apart is that it has been tested to military field standards. The rugged build will be able to withstand middle school like a boss.

HP claims that the ProBook x360 Education Edition meets the MIL-STD-810G standard but there has been no independent certification of that claim. The company says that the laptop is able to survive drops from desk-height tables onto surfaces like steel floors and concrete to ensure that it remains alive and kicking.

Users might find it hard to pick at the laptop’s keys while the keyboard itself has been made to withstand spills of up to 12 ounces of liquid. The entire laptop is covered by an industrial rubber casing and those who want extra durability can opt for Gorilla Glass 4.

The specs are nothing to write home about, though. The HP ProBook x360 Education Edition has an 11 inch display and can be bought with a Pentium N4200 or Intel Celeron N3350 processor with up to 8GB of RAM and 256GB onboard storage.

HP promises that the laptop can provide up to 11 hours of use on a single charge. It’s going to start selling the ProBook X360 Education Edition next month with prices starting at $329.
