Acer's first Windows 10 S laptop is the durable TravelMate Spin B1

Following up on Microsoft's launch of Windows 10 S, Acer has announced that its first laptop sporting the education-focused version of the OS is the TravelMate Spin B1. First shown off at CES 2017 in January, the TravelMate Spin B1 mixes a 360-degree hinge with a durable design to survive the rigors of classroom use.

The screen on the TravelMate Spin B1 is pressure resistant, and the keyboard can resist any spills that occur. A rubber bumper also means the laptop can survive a drop or two. The screen itself measures in at 11.6-inches, and it supports stylus input for taking quick notes throughout the laptop's 13-hour battery life.

The insides of the TravelMate Spin B1 include an Intel Celeron processor, 4GB of RAM, and 64GB of storage. With the Store-locked Windows 10 S on board, the Acer TravelMate Spin B1 goes on sale this month at $300 for education and commercial customers.
