The latest version of the Classmate PC comes as a convertible tablet making it much more easier for the children to operate under classroom conditions and when the child needs to use a laptop in the conventional manner it can be easily and quickly sorted.
According to the maker of the device Intel, the Classmate PC has a decent 10.1 inch display, rather than the older 8.9 inch display that is generally too small to be used at school. There are also two versions of screen resolution to choose from, the standard 1024 x 600 and the hi res 1368 x 768.
The original clamshell version of the Classmate will cost around $300, for the convertible tablet version there is an additional $30 charged.
