As technology’s role in education evolves and expands, supplying teachers with devices to support the diversity of digital education is critical. For IT, matching the latest device features to the demands of educators is a little easier when devices have been made with educators in mind.

Such is the case with the latest education-ready device to hit our virtual shelves – the HP Pro x360 435 13.3 inch G9 Notebook PC. It’s got power, performance, and extended battery life all wrapped in a convenient 2-in-1 form – and should not be overlooked as a shortlist contender. In fact, it’s recently been selected on the QED Computers for Teachers Contract, meaning schools in Queensland have the opportunity to incorporate the HP Pro x360 435 into their daily teaching lives.

So, what makes HP Pro x360 435 an ideal teaching companion? Let’s find out.

Join Ebony O’Connell, HP Device Specialist at Data#3 for a closer look at the HP ProBook x360 435 Generation 9.

Durable form factor

Teachers who are constantly on the move will appreciate HP Pro x360 435’s thin and ultra-light design; it weighs in at around 1.45 kilograms, depending on the configuration. It is easy to carry around in a backpack or bag, and what makes the HP Pro x360 435 really stand out is the 360-degree hinge that allows the device to easily swing from laptop, tablet, tent, and stand modes to match the task at hand – typing, writing notes, sketching, or presenting. These various form-factors are perfect for in-classroom settings when teachers need to engage with students in small groups or 1:1 – or out of the classroom for note or photo taking.

Durability is also a recurring theme for this HP device. The anodised aluminium cover makes it feel sturdy and able to withstand the rigours of school life. Likewise, the 13.3” touchscreen display features ultra-narrow bezels to maximise screen real estate, and Gorilla Glass for damage and scratch resistance. If that wasn’t enough, it’s passed nineteen Mil-Spec 810G tests for durability, including drop and shock testing and, for ease of sanitation, wipeability tests.

HP Pro x360 435 comes with a pen teachers will want to use – HP Slim Rechargeable pen. Offering pin-point accuracy and pressure sensitivity, it delivers a natural and satisfying pen experience when delivering lessons and providing feedback. The slim pen makes digitally marking and annotating student work a breeze.

The keyboard is also worth mentioning. Designed to make typing easy and comfortable, the rubber dome keys provide a consistent and quiet typing experience. The backlit keyboard has adjustable brightness and comes with a programmable key able to be customised depending on the apps or commands most used. A fingerprint reader adds an extra layer of security too.

Performance meets endurance

HP Pro x360 435 is equipped with an AMD Ryzen™ 5 PRO 4650U processor, which delivers speedy and reliable performance. Whether running multiple applications simultaneously, working with large files, or multitasking between different teaching projects, HP Pro x360 435 can easily handle it all. In fact, the AMD processor delivers up to 15% better performance than the Intel i5 11th Gen processor.

Teachers can rely on the device to provide long-lasting battery life, with up to 16 hours and 15 minutes of uninterrupted use. Plus, there are handy features like the HP Power Manager dashboard, which allows users and IT administrators to monitor the health status of their battery and change settings to conserve battery life.

Connectivity-wise, there’s plenty of flexibility for all those essential accessories. It’s configured with Bluetooth 5.2 and Wi-Fi 6E with HP Extended Range Wireless LAN and a range of ports – MicroSD, Audio Combo Jack, USB-C, USB-A and HDMI 2.0.

Collaboration and cameras

HP Pro x360 435 has a world-facing camera perfect for taking photos in tablet mode and a built-in physical ‘privacy’ shutter for the standard webcam. Both cameras feature HP’s innovations that deliver high resolution, plus background and low light adjustments.

Security and management

For IT admins, HP Pro x360 435 is tailored to deployment in the school environment. It comes with Windows 11 IT management and security features and HP Wolf Security, a hardware-enforced, resilient defence solution that offers numerous threat containment, malware prevention, and identity protection features to keep data secure.

Sustainability credentials

Sustainability is a welcome addition to the newer released devices and a trend we expect to see continue, and HP Pro x360 435 really delivers. It’s ENERGY STAR certified, and EPEAT registered, which means it meets strict environmental standards for energy efficiency and sustainability. Plus, it’s made with recycled materials, including ocean-bound plastics and post-consumer recycled plastics – the keycaps are made from recycled DVDs, for example. Even the outer box packaging is 100% sustainably sourced.

Undoubtedly, HP Pro x360 435 is the ultimate device for modern teachers. With a long-lasting battery, a flexible 360-degree design, a natural pen experience, and enhanced management and security features, it’s easy to see why schools are adding HP Pro x360 435 to their fleets.
