Kids Computers has announced a new netbook specifically aimed at kids that presumably is nothing but an Intel Classmate tablet. The little machine has a 10.1-inch LCD that can be used as a tablet or a clamshell netbook too.
The keyboard is water resistant, the screen is touch sensitive, and the student can draw on the screen with a pen that is included. The CPU for the machine is the Intel Atom N450 at 1.66GHz and the machine has 1GB of RAM standard with 2GB optional. Storage is to a 160Gb HDD and there are SSD options as well.
The screen resolution is 1024 x 600 and the machine has integrated WiFi, Ethernet, a 4-cell battery, and runs Windows XP Home. Windows 7 can be added if the machine runs 2GB of RAM. The price for the notebook starts at $649.
