Ever since the pandemic hit the world by storm, most of us have relied on using a reliable laptop to bring us through our journey whether for education or for work. Although we’re slowly resuming to our normal lives, a good laptop that accompanies your learning experience is worth it for the long run.
The ASUS Chromebook CR1 is the ultimate choice for teachers and students as it’s packed with multiple features that are designed for an effective and engaging learning process.
The Asus Chromebook CR1 has a tough build that allows it to withstand drops of up to 120cm, surpassing the US MIL-STD-810H durability standards. As it’s designed for students (mostly kids), it can not only withstand drops but also spills and knocks.
All four exterior edges of the laptop are protected by a tough rubber bumper, which can reduce the impact of physical shocks so that the important components inside won’t be damaged.
The laptop has a 180-degree lay-flat hinge, which allows it to be opened flat on a table for an easier group discussion among students and teacher.
It’s essential that the screen will protect the students’ eyes as they spend hours in front of it for learning. Which is why, the Chromebook CR1 is TÜV Rheinland Low Blue Light certified and it also uses an anti-glare display on its 11.6-inch screen that reduces reflections to provide a comfortable viewing experience, even under sunlight.
For connectivity, it has built-in 4G LTE for outdoor learning via a SIM card. It also supports up to the latest Wi-Fi 6 technology for students to experience smooth and fast online lessons as well as video chats.
The laptop doesn’t lose out to the other business laptops as it offers an array of ports, including two USB 3.2 Gen 1 Type-C® ports, two USB 3.2 Gen 1 Type-A ports, a microSD card reader, an audio combo jack, and a Kensington lock slot.
It’s important that the device can last through a day or at least during their study hours and this laptop is powered by a 47WHr battery, which can last up to 12 hours of use within a single charge.
To protect the students from harmful bacteria, the keyboard, touchpad, and palm rest of the Chromebook CR1 are protected by the ASUS Antibacterial Guard to inhibit the growth of bacteria by 99% in a span of over 24 hours. Thanks to the Antibacterial Guard, the laptop can withstand alcohol-based cleaning products and hypochlorous acid water to keep it clean.
Of course, the Chromebook runs ChromeOS, which means students will have access to learning apps and games via the Google Play Store, as well as several Google features such as Google Drive, Gmail, Google Meet, Google Docs, and more.
