There’s been no shortage of new netbooks over the past year, but Dell has one that’s been designed especially for schools. I think that at $369, the Latitude 2100 will compete strongly with HP’s MiniNote and Acer’s Aspire One for the desks of elementary, middle and high schools. The systems come in five colors and have rubberized surfaces so they are easy to carry and can survive being dropped into a backpack. Based on an Intel Atom processor, 10.1-inch screen and the choice of Windows XP, Vista or Ubuntu Linux, the Latitude 2100 weighs under 3 pounds. The best part is that schools can have their logos printed on the systems.
