“Every aspect of the new Acer Chromebook 712 was designed from the ground up with the educational environment in mind,” said James Lin, General Manager, Notebooks, IT Products Business, Acer Inc. “In addition to meeting several durability and safety standards, we’ve also provided extras such as a student-friendly keyboard and the latest processing and Wi-Fi technology, giving students and teachers a powerful tool that will enhance student engagement and learning outcomes.”

Powered by up to 10th Gen Intel Core i3 processors, the Chromebook 712 provides the performance capabilities needed to handle more complex and challenging classes such as coding or video editing. This power also lets students collaborate on school projects, run multiple apps and stream educational videos with ease. With up to 12 hours of battery life, students can expect a full day of usage on one charge.

The Acer Chromebook 712 is not only durable enough to meet the stringent U.S. MIL-STD 810G military standards, it’s also tough enough to handle even the most energetic students. It has a reinforced hinge that remains intact even when students pick it up by the display, which was intentionally designed to provide extra flexibility.

It can also withstand up to 60 kg (132 pounds) of downward force, so it’s protected if a student steps on it or smashes it in a backpack. Its reinforced design and shock-absorbing bumper even lets it handle drops from heights of up to 122 cm (48 inches). Also suitable for younger students, the new Acer Chromebook 712 is certified to meet two leading toy safety standards: the ASTM F963-16[4] and UL/IEC 60950-1[5].

The keyboard was designed with active students in mind. It has mechanically anchored keys that are difficult to remove but easy to replace, making them ideal for classroom environments. The keyboard also protects against spills of up to 330 ml (11 fluid ounces) of water thanks to a gutter system that routes water out the bottom of the chassis. Even the touchpad is moisture-resistant.
