HP launches new Fortis laptop lineup designed for education



Today, HP launched the Fortis lineup of laptops that feature durable devices aimed at education in Chromebooks and PCs. Since the COVID-19 pandemic burst onto the scene in 2020, altering every aspect of our lives, children and parents had to adjust to the new hybrid learning situation created by remote classrooms — which have now become the norm. 

That said, many Chromebooks and PC laptops are not made to be handled by kids who tend to drop or bump laptops in ways that lessen their life expectancy. HP’s Fortis lineup addresses these issues while also helping to create a more seamless blended learning environment to help kids learn and stay connected.

The new Fortis 14-inch G10 ChromeBook is rugged, durable, and powered for productivity, with a starting retail price of $349. The Fortis 14 G10 comes with an Intel Celeron CPU, Intel UHD graphics, two display choices (HD 1366 x 768 and FHD 1920 x 1080), up to 8GB of RAM, and storage options ranging from 32GB to 128GB. You will also find one SuperSpeed USB Type-C port, two SuperSpeed USB 3.2 Gen 1 ports, one HDMI, a combo audio jack, a Micro SD card reader, and a Nano security lock.

HP Fortis 14-inch ChromeBook is Mil-STD drop tested with a full-skirted anchored keyboard that resists any kid’s inclination to pick at keys. What’s more, the keyboard also resists spills up to 350 ml. With the optional 4G LTE, your child can always be connected even if Wi-Fi is unavailable to them, which ensures they will always be able to get their work done and make it to class remotely.  

HP’s Fortis 11-inch G9 Q Chromebook features a Qualcomm 7c CPU, Qualcomm Integrated graphics, up to 8GB of RAM, and up to 64GB of storage. There is also the option of 4G LTE. The Fortis 11 G9 Q arrives with two SuperSpeed USB-C ports, one SuperSpeed USB 3.2 Gen 1 port, a combo audio jack, one SIM Card slot, and a Nano Security lock. 

The display choices for the 11-inch Fortis are the HD SVA anti-glare display and two HD anti-glare UWVA displays, which are rated for 220 nits of brightness. Pricing is currently unavailable for the G9 Q Chromebook but should be available in Q2 of 2022.
