CTL outs 10.1-inch Classmate PC netbook

CTL has introduced its next generation 2Go Classmate PC, and the first to sport a 10-inch display. The 2go Classmate PC E10 is another rebranded Intel Classmate PC, which itself was developed to compete with the OLPC XO Laptop. All are made to serve as educational tools in developing and developed nations alike. The 10.1-inch form factor allows for the use of a keyboard that is 90 percent the size of that of a conventional notebook, which is better than the 77 percent of the older, smaller models.

Key specs for the PC include 1024x600 resolution, a 1.6GHz Intel Atom CPU and 1GB of RAM. There is also a 160GB hard drive preloaded with Windows XP Home, along with a Wi-Fi module. The netbook weighs 2.8lbs with a six-cell battery. To ensure it can take the abuse from young hands, the notebook has thick skin and should be able to withstand falls and scratches. A handle is built in.
Preloaded software include Intel's Blue Dolphin program launcher, an eBook and PDF readers, along with a webcam program, Microsoft Works and a PowerPoint viewer.

The 2go Classmate PC E10 is now available, priced at $449 to the general public, which schools getting about a $100 discount. [via Liliputing]
