HP on Friday announced its latest convertible laptop for education, the ProBook x360 11 G7 EE. Noting the resurgence of the PC, HP said there's been a 46% increase in device shipments for teachers and students over the past year. What's more, 66% of teachers expect to continue hybrid learning beyond the COVID-19 pandemic.

HP said its ProBook x360 11 G7 EE aims to provide functionality for both at-home and in-person learning. 

On the software side, the device comes equipped with the latest HP School Pack, a suite of education software and system tools. It also features HP's Classroom Manager tool, which allows teachers to manage student devices and remotely restrict web and app use. There's also a private chat function within Classroom Manager so that teachers can check in on students for understanding and general well-being.

In terms of hardware specs, the device features a 360-degree hinge to allow for laptop, tablet, tent, stand, or book mode. It also comes with an optional 5 megapixel auto-focusing camera, as well as an optional active HP Pro Pen for notation on the interactive touchscreen. HP is also touting the device for its improved durability, IT-friendly manageability and security, and ease of cleaning.

ProBook x360 11 G7 EE is expected to be available in February.
