Intel has just launched their educational portable computer, Classmate PC, in Chile. This is the first country that has available this sub-notebook which features a Celeron M at 900MHz, 256MB RAM, 2GB of NAND hard drive and runs either Linux or Windows. The retail price is something near 500 dollars and it can only be purchased by government offices. The distribution is in charge of Olidata, the regional partner of Uniwill, an ECS Elitegroup company.
Personally, I'm not sure why anyone would want this PC for $500. For just $100 more you can buy a notebook with significantly better specifications.
