Dell Introduces Rugged Netbook for Kids

Dell is betting small computers will be perfect for tiny hands as it launches a new ¡§rugged¡¨ netbook targeted at students. Called the Latitude 2100, the netbook comes with an anti-microbial keyboard (perfect for germy little hands), a 10.1-inch touchscreen, a case with a rubber-like feel and a choice of five colors.

¡§Compared to plastic or magnesium alloy, the rubberized casing makes the device easy to grip and non-slip,¡¨ says David Lord, senior manager at Dell. ¡§It shows our intent of using the netbook form factor in a way that benefits the education market.¡¨

Based on a Intel Atom N270 processor, the Latitude 2100 netbook offers a choice of Windows or Ubuntu Linux OS, up to 1 GB memory, up to 16 GB solid state drive or 250 GB hard drive, Bluetooth, wireless LAN and a touchpad input. The netbook weighs 2.91 lbs. It also offers features such as a network activity light located at the back of the display so teachers can monitor the device¡¦s connectivity status.
