CTL, an Oregon-based company specializing in comprehensive 1:1 solutions for education, announced today the upcoming release of the CTL Chromebook J41 for Education, the newest addition to their lineup of rugged designed CTL Chromebooks tailor-made for student use.

At a glance, the new CTL Chromebook J41 features a soft-touch, anti-slip rubberized texture. The drop-resistant slim profile design creates a lightweight body weighing in at only 2.45 lbs, making it a great option for the K-12 classroom environment. A water-resistant keyboard further protects the CTL Chromebook J41 by allowing spills to be channeled out and away from internal hardware. The 11.6" matte HD Panel screen is anti-glare ensuring ease of viewing and eye strain as well as being finger-resistant. The CTL Chromebook J41 also comes with the option to be upgraded to an optional 10 point capacitive touchscreen. Sturdy 180 degree hinges help to increase durability as the unit will lay-flat when opened completely. In addition, the unit contains two USB Type-C ports, two USB 3.0 ports, one Micro SD port, and a combo audio jack with an HD Web Camera, Wi-Fi and Bluetooth 4.0.


On the inside, the CTL Chromebook J41 runs Chrome OS on Intel's updated N3350 (or N3450) processor. The CTL Chromebook J41 comes with either 16GB or 32GB of storage.

"At CTL, we pride ourselves on taking our 1:1 comprehensive solutions one step further by designing products that withstand the rigors of a K-12 environment, and the CTL Chromebook J41 is no exception. We know those looking for a powerful lightweight unit to implement in classroom deployment will love the CTL Chromebook J41." - Erik Stromquist, President of CTL

All CTL Chromebooks for Education now include a 2 way ship warranty where CTL will pay freight both to and from qualified education customers should the product need service. CTL also has options for add-ons like warranty upgrades, Chrome Education License, White Glove Service, Buy and Try Discounts, great educational apps from software partners, and more.

  • 11.6 Non Glare Panel or Optional IPS 10 point touch

If they can figure out a way to keep kids from easily ripping off the keyboard keys; they'll sell a ton of them. With that said, I've seen a few 'rugged' Chromebooks in use and none of them have been able to withstand the might of Middle School students.
