April 26, 2010 at 7:20 pm

CTL 2go Convertible Classmate PC NL2Intel has officially launched the CTL 2go Convertible Classmate PC NL2, the latest Classmate PC aimed at kids. However, the specs are anything but skimpy. You get a 10.1-inch (1024 x 600) resistive touchscreen display powered by a 1.66GHz N450 Atom processor, 1GB RAM and either 32GB flash or a 2.5-inch HDD.

It also comes with a water-resistant keyboard/touchpad, accelerometer, Wi-Fi (b/g/n), two USB ports and SD card slot. WiMAX, 3G or GPS are also optional. As it’s aimed for kids it has HDD protection, Intel says that you can drop it 60cm without damage (70cm for the flash version). The company quotes 4.8 hours for the 4-cell battery and 8.5 hours for the 6-cell. Read more

CTL 2go PC UW1 netbook offers nothing new

April 3, 2009 at 7:48 am

CTL 2go PC UW1The 2go PC UW1 is a new 10-inch netbook released by CTL. I had to double check on that name as it’s not exactly catchy; I wonder where CTL’s marketing team have been hiding! Well, judging by the specifications, the name is probably the most exotic thing about this netbook.

The 2go PC UW1 supports a 10-inch (1024 x 576) display powered by a 1.6GHz N270 Atom CPU and 1GB RAM. It will come with a 160GB hard drive and 6-cell battery (no idea on battery life). The unit weighs 1.2kg (2.6lbs), despite this the pictures suggest that it’s not exactly thin. It will come with an 85 percent size keyboard and it commits the heinous crime of having mouse buttons either side of the touchpad. Given that many netbook vendors are looking to increase keyboard size (like the Samsung N120) it’s a shame that this keyboard is relatively small.

All in all, not too much to get excited about here. Laptop Mag should hopefully be posting a review on this shortly for those that are interested. The 2go PC UW1 will release on May 11 at $399. Click for more pictures after the break. Read more
