Intel recently left the One Laptop per Child (OLPC) initiative and is now pushing its Classmate PC. The new computers are also low priced, semi-rugged laptops, but they have a Windows XP OS rather than LINUX.

The new Intel Classmate PC has gotten decent reviews, and it looks nice with its colorful leather cover and rubber bumpers.

Implications - The laptop is relatively small so you would be able to carry it around no problem in a backpack or large purse. Taking it anywhere means that you could even work outside on a nice day. The Intel Classmate PC offers different colored cases such as the featured light blue cover. The small laptop is fast and loads videos and pictures in a snap.
