If the Daewoo C920 netbook looks familiar, that’s because it’s basically a rebranded Intel Classmate 3 PC machine. That’s not necessarily a bad thing. The Classmate PC reference design makes it easy for PC makers to mass produce cheap touchscreen devices that can function as either a notebook or tablet PC. The laptop features a touchscreen display that can be folded down over the keyboard.
Like other Classmate PC models, the C920 features a 1.6GHz Intel Atom N270 CPU, 1GB of RAM, and a 60GB, 4200rpm 1.8″ hard drive. It ships with Windows XP Home Edition, but I have a feeling we might see a version with Windows 7 in the not too distant future.
My one complaint about these Classmate 3-based computers is that the keyboards are unnecessarily small and difficult to type on. But since they’re targeted primarily at school children, who tend to have smaller fingers than I do, this might not be that big a problem.
