Intel Classmate Netbook Review »


The rugged Classmate Netbook is a mini PC with students in mind, with its 8.9" touch screen, convertible design, an Intel Atom CPU, and a solid state 16 Gig drive all for just $500.

Look below the cut for the written review from Attack of the Show.

What You Need to Know

  • Definitely not the coolest looking Netbook and it does feel plastic-y
  • Seems rugged enough and has a water resistant keyboard for late night coffee mishaps
  • Overall, we like the design
  • Keyboard is a bit cramped
  • Track Pad is too small but mouse clicks feel natural
  • Touch screen / tablet functions really well
  • Handwriting recognition works like a dream
  • Runs Windows XP which is good for freeing up resources
  • 1 Gig of RAM may be limiting but uprading to 2 is available
  • The version we reviewed has a 60 Gig hard drive and runs pretty well
  • A 16 Gig solid state drive is available and we're guessing would be even faster
  • The price is a good deal, but other similar netbooks are coming in a little lower

Price

  • $500
