By  |  1 Comment

The latest Classmate PC has popped up at as their Kids Classmate Tablet PC – ah, let me write that again: Tablet PC – and they’re listing it as backordered until the end of the month.

The Kids Classmate Tablet PC offers a little flexibility in the options with 30-40GB SSD instead of the standard 160GB HDD, and up to 2GB memory, but the Intel Atom N450 1.66GHz processor is fixed, as is the 10.1″ 1024×600 convertible touchscreen. Starting price is $649.

Interested in learning more about the Classmate? There’s an InkShow for that. Handy little netbook tablet for the kids (and for some adults too).

    For me the 600 vertical resolution is a non-starter. Even the iPad has a greater vertical resolution.
