Classmate+ PC For Kids Released By Lenovo and Intel
Let’s get one thing straight, that new Classmate+ PC is basically an Intel Classmate, branded with the Lenovo name and given the “+” symbol with a better processor thrown in for good measure.
The computer features a 10.1 inch netbook design with a brand new Atom N570 processor and other basic netbook features including Windows 7, 1GB RAM, 1.3 megapixel camera and WiFi.
Also offered are three cell and six cell battery options, although we would suggest the six cell option for far better use time.
As expected the netbooks will not be available to the public, but instead sold in bulk to educations facilities, agencies and developing world customers.
According to Engadget:
158,000 are already set to be deployed this spring in Buenos Aires. See kids, netbooks are far from dead!
I’m not a huge fan, but I like the handle which makes the netbook easy to carry around throughout the day without need for a case.
