HP Mini 100e netbook targeted at classrooms

June 23, 2010 at 10:28 am

HP Mini 100e HP has added a new model to its netbook roster, the HP Mini 100e Education Edition. This looks like a classmate PC in design and is targeted at schools rather than the wider market. The palm rest, base and lid can be customised with the school’s logo.

The case and hinges are reinforced and it also comes with an integrated carry handle and spill-proof keyboard. The outer lid also comes with a LED network activity lid so teachers can spot which kids are surfing the net when they’re meant to by working!

The Mini 100e comes with a 1.66-GHz Intel Atom N455 processor, up to 2GB of RAM, a matte 10.1-inch (1024 x 600-pixel) display, and a 5,400-rpm 160GB HDD. You’ll also get two USB ports, VGA, Ethernet, and a modem port for developing countries. The HP Mini 100e Education Edition goes on sale in July with various pricing bundles.

    I’m guessing the $300 price tag would be for Linux, and would be more expensive if the option for XP or 7 was used, but if someone chooses Linux what preloaded software will they get?
