2go-laptopmag-reviewThe CTL 2Go PC convertible tablet/netbook is one of the first sub-$500 touchscreen tablet PCs to hit the market. The mini-laptop is based on the third version of Intel’s Classmate PC design and while it’s not quite as rugged as early versions of the Classmate PC, it is much more versatile thanks to its 8.9 inch touchscreen display, accelerometer, and integrated software suite.

I should be getting a demo unit to review next week, but in the meantime, you can read a full review over at Laptop Magazine. Laptop’s Joanna Stern has been playing with the latest 2Go PC since the end of CES, and she’s reached the same basic conclusion that I have: While this machine is clearly built for educational markets, it’s the first Classmate PC-based device that will also appeal to mainstream customers.

You can buy the 2Go PC for $499 from CTL’s web site.

If you’re holding out for a slimmer, more professional looking netbook/tablet, Asus will release the Eee PC T91 and T101H touchscreen netbooks within the next few months. No word on pricing for those units yet.

  1. Since it’s not submersible, I can just see some kid come up with a variation on the old saw about homework, “My dog through up on the keyboard.”

  2. Last comment for today – Brad … why isn’t it on your database please? I only found a 9″ linux CTL. I know Chippy from UMPC portal updates UMPCs faster on this database – but please add it so we can bump it up 🙂

  3. Also Brad please notice that the T91 is supposed to be 1.3 where the CTL is 1.6-GHz according to specs. So this is a good one for the CTL over Asus, though the T91 is going to be lighter and thinner..

    1. Maybe the T101H will win, if the T91 will be too low spec. But from pics it looks much bigger (and probably heavier). I think Asus will do good if they give us more info ASAP. I can see how people will be buying the CTL soon if not.

  4. Either this or the T91 is going to be the netbook of the year. It all depends on the Asus pricing, and I must say that my prediction is them lowering the price to 500-550$ as well.
    I am so tempted to buy this one, but the T91 seems more sexy.
