TL;DR: ASUS BR1100’s military grade durability, clever protective features, and wide range of connectivity makes it the perfect device for the young learner’s high-quality distance education.
ASUS Philippines unveiled their latest ASUS BR1100 education laptop lineup, which combines great performance, durability, and portability, for the local market to aid students with their distance learning.
The ASUS BR1100 is an 11.6-inch laptop that is available in clamshell form (BR1100C) for a traditional experience and a convertible design that flips to become an 11.6-inch multi-touch tablet (BR1100F).
The laptop is designed for teachers and students alike with Military Grade durability for everyday knocks, bumps and drops, AI-powered noise-cancelling microphone and 3D noise-reduction webcam for high-quality online learning, serviceability for reduced downtimes and simplifying repairs.
The ASUS BR1100 is a Windows 10 laptop powered by the latest Intel Celeron N4500, 4GB of DDR4 memory and a 64GB eMMC drive with an option to increase the storage up to 1TB thanks to its additional M.2 expansion slot.
For online classes and video conferencing, a built-in 720p HD webcam with privacy shutter and AI noise-cancelling microphone are included. An additional 13MP high-resolution world-facing camera is also included for the flip model. At the same time, users are always connected with its integrated WiFi5/WiFi6 module. Connectivity consists of USB 2.0 Type-A, USB 3.2 (Gen 1) Type-A, USB 3.2 (Gen 2) Type-C with power delivery support, a Gigabit LAN, an HDMI 1.4, a 3.5mm combo audio jack, an optional 4G LTE slot and lastly an optional microSD Card reader. Moreover, with its 42WHr, 3-cell Li-ion battery, this laptop can provide up to 10 hours of running time which is more than enough to last an entire school day.
Other notable features for the ASUS BR1100 include military-grade MIL-STD-810H for durability, ASUS BacGuard for an extra protective layer from bacteria, spill-resistant keyboard, and TÜV Rheinland’s certification that ensures low blue-light emission.
Built to last
The ASUS BR1100’s military-grade MIL-STD-810H certification ensures the laptop would last. Its rubber safety grips and 3D-textured finish reduces the risk of slips and fumbles. While the micro-dimpled finish makes this notebook scratch resistant. All four exterior edges and corners are protected by a tough rubber bumper, which reduces the impact of physical shocks to ensure critical components are always safe and sound.
A spill-resistant keyboard for accidental liquid spillage and tamper-resistant keycaps ensures that the laptop remains functional.
To help protect users, the surfaces of the BR1100 are treated with ASUS BacGuard. This has been scientifically shown to inhibit the growth of bacteria by over 99-percent over a 24-hour period.
Features for students
Designed with distance learning in mind, the ASUS BR1100 comes with features that will aid students with their education. 3D noise reduction (3DNR) technology is built in the 720p HD camera which eliminates up to 94% of the random image noise that naturally affects any camera. This in turn improves image quality without compromising any details.
As a further aid to remote learning and video conferencing, the laptop has an AI noise-cancelling technology that isolates unwanted noise from human speech ensuring clearer voice quality.
A dedicated microphone mute key is also included for a quick and convenient way when students want to contribute something in their class. Its display also comes with the TÜV Rheinland’s certification for low blue-light emissions reducing eye strain for its users which helps students in their prolonged laptop usage.
