Interesting. That is an Intel Classmate. I didn't know they were available.

Anyway.. who cares how they market it? It is a convertible so the screen will lay flat. It has a touch screen it has an Intel Atom processor, 60GB hard drive, Ethernet, WiFi. It runs XP home which means it should run Mobilreader, MS Reader, eReader, Adobe Reader, Digital Editions, Foxit reader, FBReader, etc. It has a 9 inch screen.

At $500 it is quite a bit cheaper than the iRex DR1000S and SW. Granted it does not have an eInk or reflixive screen like the one LG just announced or has been planned for OLPC v2.

BTW: there is a thread about this in the News section. Perhaps these threads can be merged.

It seems to be the same as the CTL 2go Convertible, except with a 4 cell battery instead of a 6 cell.

And yeah, this is talked about in the thread Classmate PC "tablet" .
