Dell is offering new and rugged netbook computers that promise to stand up to the rigors of use in schools with kids. The new netbook line is called the Latitude 2100 and is intended for use by K-12 students. The machines are available in five colors and has wireless connectivity and a network activity light so network use can be monitored.

The netbook offers an optional touchscreen and a custom Mobile Computing Station for classrooms that offers a cart that stores and manages up to 24 netbooks with a single Ethernet and power cord. The case of the machine is covered in a rubberized material to add ruggedness and make it easier for kids to grip the machine.

Other options for the machines in the US include an antimicrobial keyboard, SSD, shoulder straps and handles. The machines come in school bus gold (that's yellow for those of us who can see colors), chalkboard black, ball field green, blue ribbon, and schoolhouse red. The screen is a 10.1-inch unit and Windows XP, Vista, and Linux are OS choices. Three or six cell batteries and external optical drives are optional. The machines start at $369.
