Intel Classmate now available in the UK

Intel’s cheap and cheerful (and in my opinion quite ugly) low end cheap laptop is now available in the UK.

Intel Classmate now available in the UK

The Register reports on the £239 computer.

Dubbed the JumPC, the Small, Cheap Computer is based on a 900MHz Intel Celeron Mobile processor and the chip giant’s 915GMS chipset. It has 512MB of DDR 2 memory on board and 2GB of Flash storage – though you can select a 30GB HDD instead.

The unit has an Eee PC-style 7in, 800 x 480 display; two USB ports; 10/100Mb/s Ethernet and 802.11b/g Wi-Fi. There’s a webcam too.

Oh it comes with a handle too!

It comes with Windows XP and is another entrant in the micro-laptop UMPC market which is having an impact on the UK educational IT scene.

    Seriously, that’s the fugliest computer I’ve seen since my old Packard Bell Club 70.
