Acer unveils tough new TravelMate Spin B3 laptop for classrooms

Acer’s new TravelMate Spin B3 (TMB311R-32) convertible laptop, with military-grade durability2 are ideal for classrooms. The touchscreen device features a Full HD webcam and Intel Wi-Fi 6.

Powered by up to the latest Intel Pentium Silver processors, it offers up to 12 hours of battery life. With military-grade durability and a shock absorbent bumper, the device can withstand up to 60 kg (132.28 lbs) of downward force and has increased resistance to daily wear and tear.

Mechanically anchored keys further enhance the laptop’s sturdiness: each key features small plastic wings that will catch on the chassis when pulled.

A special drainage design helps protect the notebooks from moderate spills by routing water out from the bottom of the chassis. The touchpad is also moisture-resistant.

Antimicrobial Features
The Acer TravelMate Spin B3’s touch display is covered with a layer of Antimicrobial Corning Gorilla Glass, that can reduce the growth of odour and stain-causing microorganisms. Additionally, an optional BPR and EPA-compliant silver-ion antimicrobial agent in the coating on the keyboard, touchpad and palm-rest surface is proven to show a consistently high microbial reduction rate against a broad range of bacteria under the JIS Z 2801 & ISO 22196 test protocol.

The Acer TravelMate Spin B3’s convertible design makes learning more fun and facilitates collaborative work: after making something in tablet or clamshell mode, students can show off their work to others in display mode. The device can also be placed into tent mode, in which the keyboard props up and balances the display, letting users save desk space while watching videos or participating in online lectures. An optional Wacom AES pen and 5 MP HDR front-facing camera further enhance the device’s versatility.
