Flipped Out

The ASUS Chromebook Flip C213 is a rugged Chrome OS-powered laptop specially designed for use in educational environments, featuring 360-degree hinges, an 11.6-inch touchscreen display and up to 12 hours of battery life. The Flip C213 contains 4GB RAM of memory and 32GB embedded MultiMediaCard 5.1 of storage. The ergonomic, spill-proof keyboard has 2.0mm key-travel for more accurate typing and a better feel. It can withstand accidental spills of up to 2.2 ounces of liquid. The laptop features dual cameras: a 5-megapixel rear camera for high-resolution photos and videos, and an HD front camera for video calls.

Erasable Printing

Toshiba introduced the e-STUDIO4508LP, a hybrid copier capable of producing erasable as well as standard monochrome prints. Featuring the company’s proprietary erasable toner, the copier enables paper reuse by erasing all printed content on the page. Content produced using the hybrid copier’s blue toner is erased by loading pages into a designated cassette or the bypass tray and pressing the Erase button on the e-STUDIO4508LP’s front panel. Content may also be erased using the optional paper reusing device, the e-STUDIO RD301, which also scans and files documents and sorts reusable paper. Printing temporary items, like emails or documents for proofreading, may be designated in erasable toner (at 35 pages-per-minute) to conserve paper, while more permanent documents such as receipts, insurance and on-boarding forms may be designated for monochrome output (at 45 pages-per-minute).

Thinbook

Acer’s Predator Triton 700 ultrathin notebook houses the high-performance NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1080 graphics processing unit, 7th Generation Intel Core processors, and up to 32GB of DDR4 2400 MHz memory in an 18.9mm-thick (0.74 inch) aluminum chassis. The notebook also includes two USB 3.0 ports featuring power-off USB charging, one USB 2.0 port, an HDMI 2.0 port, one DisplayPort connector and a Gigabit Ethernet port. The Predator features a 15.6-inch 1080p display and up to 512GB of storage.
