The CTL Chromebook NL72 is a small rugged laptop designed for use in the classroom. It’s a 2.85 pound laptop with an 11.6 inch HD display, at least 4GB of RAM, and an Intel Jasper Lake processor.

CTL is taking pre-orders for $289 for a model with an Intel Celeron N4500 dual-core processor, 4GB of RAM and 32GB of storage, but the company also plans to offer configurations with up to a Celeron N5100 quad-core chip, 8GB of RAM, and 64GB of storage.

The notebook features an intel AX201 wireless card with support for WiFi 6 and Bluetooth 5.2 and features an HD webcam on a 360 degree hinge, allowing you to rotate the camera to face forward or backward.

Ports include:

  • 2 x USB 3.0 Gen 1 Type-C
  • 2 x USB 3.0 Gen 1 Type-A
  • 1 x 3.5mm audio jack
  • 1 x microSD card reader

Like most budget Chromebooks, the NL72 has eMMC storage rather than a faster SSD and has a 1366 x 768 pixel screen rather than a higher-resolution display. But the notebook does have a ruggedized body that’s been drop tested with resistance for falls from heights up to 70cm (2.3 feet). And it’s available with a choice of touch or non-touch display panels.

It also has a handle that lets you carry the computer like a briefcase.

The CTL Chromebook NL72 should receive Chrome OS software and security updates delivered by Google until at least June, 2029.

  1. That’s no good. Jasper lakes, being wasted on ChromeOS.
    Dual core Atoms should be gone.
    That resolution should be gone too.

    Just imagine this but with Ubuntu.
