Acer Unveils Tough New TravelMate Spin B3 Laptop for Classrooms

Acer today announced the new TravelMate Spin B3 (TMB311R-32) convertible laptop with military-grade durability, a device specially designed for classrooms. The touchscreen device features a Full HD webcam and blazing-fast Intel® Wi-Fi 6, providing students with everything they need to succeed in interactive or virtual classrooms that make heavy use of media-based teaching materials.

Ultimately, the Acer TravelMate Spin B3 is a reliable device that strives to provide protection against common accidents, allowing parents and teachers to focus on what matters most: learning.

Efficient, Durable Performance

The Acer TravelMate Spin B3 is powered by up to the latest Intel® Pentium® Silver processors and offers up to 12 hours4 of battery life to ensure students won’t need to charge during the school day. With military-grade durability2 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, helping to protect the keyboard from restless fingers. 

Considering that students working at home might snack or have a glass of water while working, Acer created a unique drainage design that helps protect the notebooks from moderate spills5 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 Antimicrobic Corning® Gorilla® Glass6, 7 that has been specially formulated to 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.

Collaboration, Connection and Connectivity

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.

Additionally, the notebook has been equipped with a number of connectivity features in order to minimize the hassle associated with online learning. Intel Wi-Fi 6 provides a blazing-fast wireless connection while a strategically placed wireless antenna and 2×2 MU-MIMO helps with connectivity in multi-user environments. Optional 4G LTE connectivity provides students with extra personal bandwidth so that they can keep connected and maintain access to schoolwork and apps in the cloud, even when out of Wi-Fi range.

The device includes a full-function USB 3.2 Gen 1 Type-C connector for faster data transfers, an RJ45 port for connecting directly to the Ethernet and an HDMI port for connecting to external displays. As a final touch, the front cover of the device includes a battery-level indicator, allowing teachers to tell at a glance if devices for classroom use need to be charged.
