CTL is now taking orders for the 2go Classmate PC E11, the latest of the company’s netbooks for the education market. Like earlier models, the Classmate E11 is based on Intel’s Clasmate PC reference designs, but the new model has a few new features including an Intel Atom N455 processor and optional 3G mobile broadband.
The computer is a bit expensive for a netbook, with a starting price of $445. But you get a water resistant display and keyboard and a shock-mounted hard drive to prevent damage, as well as a retractable handle for carrying the laptop like a briefacse.
The CTL 2go Classmate PC E11 comes standard with Windows 7 Starter Edition, 1GB of RAM, and a 160GB hard drive. You can pay extra for a solid state drive, 2GB of RAM, and Windows 7 Home Premium or Professional.
