Kids who suffer from out of date 50lbs. computers at school rejoice! Dell has launched their new Latitude 2100, the first classroom friendly, and touch, netbook for kids.
The new Latitude 2100 netbook adds kid-friendly perks like colorful lids and a rugged rubberized design, along with options for a carrying handle, shoulder strap, antimicrobial keyboard, touchscreen LCD and a Dell Mobile Computing Station docking cart (which can manage and store 24 of them with a single Ethernet cable and single power cord). The netbook is going to be available today with options for Vista, XP or Ubuntu 8.10, and the base configuration retails at $369 though it’s unclear how much options like an SSD, a 6-cell battery (3-cell is standard), touchscreen or Vista will cost.
