kurokidsSince it’s apparently not enough to make cheap durable mini-laptops with small screens and keyboards for kids, a company called KuroKids has slapped some cartoony goodness on a Classmate PC.

The Classmate PC is Intel’s platform for low cost mini-laptops aimed at students. The notebooks tend to feature 10 inch or smaller displays, ruggedized cases, sturdy plastic keyboards, handles for carrying, and some models even have a slot for teachers to insert a piece of paper with a student’s name.

The Doraemon netbook looks like a standard second generation Classmate PC, which means it probably has an 8.9 inch, 1024 x 600 pixel display, a 1.6GHz Intel Atom CPU, and a hard drive. It does not have the touchscreen and tablet features found in Intel’s Classmate 3 reference design.

It sells for the equivalent of about $488 US, but I don’t expect to see it for sale in the states anytime soon.
