Dell’s education-oriented Latitude 2100 netbook is already available for order in the US, but it has a preliminary ship date of late July. But Netbook News blogger Sascha isn’t in the US, he’s in Germany. And he got a chance to snag a Latitude 2100 and he’s posted an unusual outdoor-style unboxing video.
Here are some of the highlights:
- That is by far the thickest netbook I’ve seen to date
- There’s an optional strip that you can attach that lets you carry the netbook around your neck
- There’s a spot for kids to put their names on the back of the battery
- The chassis comes in several bright colors and has a ruggedized rubber feel
- There’s a touchscreen option available
You can check out the complete video after the break.
Limited to 1GB???? Sorry, try reading the Dell spec sheet!!!!!! It says that it has an additional slot for a total of 2 GB.
Me very bad! I tried to configure one with XP and and extra 1 GB of memory on the Higher education organization page and it won’t let you.
You can get the extra 1 GB with Ubuntu though. Billy G strikes again.
wow that IS the thickest netbook ever…
Are they kidding on the pricing? It didn’t take much to get that thing up to almost $700. I know it’s easy to get options happy but many of these options are available on the EeePC for $399. The only saving grace is the screen resolution.
