Tech specifications for the Lava Helium 12:
The Lava Helium 12 is equipped with a 12.5-inch 1366 x 768p dense IPS LCD screen with tempered glass on the top. Under the hood, the device is powered by Intel Atom Quad-core Z8350 1.4 GHz processor, paired with 2 GB LPDDR3 RAM and 32 GB onboard flash storage with a full-sized SD card slot (up to 128 GB).

In terms of connectivity, the device does support WiFi 802.11 b/g/n with Bluetooth 4.0 support (for wireless mouse and keyboard connectivity).
When it comes to the ports, the device has a lot of them, which is not even found on the premium flagship notebooks. The Lava helium 12 offers one full-sized USB 3.0 port, one full-sized USB 2.0 port and a mini HDMI port to connect the device to the external display or projector. The notebook weights 1.3 KG and measures 318 x 211 x 20mm, so, carrying it to the college and office will not be a burden on your shoulder.
