Educational computer provider CTL is launching two new Chromebooks for use in classrooms. Both feature full HD touchscreen displays and Intel Celeron N3160 quad-core processors.

But the $299 CLT NLS61TX Chromebook has one feature the $269 CTL NL61T Chromebook does not: a pressure resistant cover that reduces the risk of damage. The cover also works as a dry-erase whiteboard.

Both laptops feature reinforced ports and hinges to help the Chromebooks put up with abuse at the hands of school kids. They also have anti-peel keys and water resistant keyboards.

Other features include 4GB of RAM, 32GB of eMMC storage, two USB 3.0 ports, an SD card reader, and 802.11ac WiFi.

CTL says the laptops should get up to 14 hours of battery life, and the batteries are “serviceable,” which is a fancy way of saying that you can’t necessarily pop them in and out without any tools, but they can be replaced by a school IT administrator.
