Otellini shows off US$400 laptop for school use

Intel President Paul Otellini showed off a prototype of a notebook for schools that the company expects to offer for US$400 at the start of next year.

The laptop will be offered through an educational initiative aimed at providing a laptop for all schoolchildren, Otellini said. The laptop will be offered to the Brazilian government, along with wireless broadband access and educational software, according to Oscar Clarke, president of Intel Brazil.

The prototype computer was shown to journalists. It has the size and format of a notebook computer and will be manufactured by Intel partners.

LIFEBOOK UH574

The screen was particularly good. It is bright and visible from most angles, however heat is an issue, particularly around the Windows button on the front, and on the back where the battery housing is located.

STYLISTIC Q702

My first impression after unboxing the Q702 is that it is a nice looking unit. Styling is somewhat minimalist but very effective. The tablet part, once detached, has a nice weight, and no buttons or switches are located in awkward or intrusive positions.
