First look: Dell Latitude 2100 ruggedised netbook

The first ruggedised netbook designed specifically for schools

Dell today announced the first ruggedised netbook the company has designed specifically with students in mind: the Latitude 2100. It's a 10.1in model with an Intel Atom N270 CPU and it can be configured with Windows XP, Windows Vista Basic or Ubuntu Linux. Being a Dell notebook, the customisation options are vast: you can order the Dell Latitude 2100 with either a solid-state drive or a conventional 5400rpm hard drive; you can get it with up to 2GB of DDR2 SDRAM; and you can opt for a 6-cell battery instead of the standard 3-cell battery. Most importantly, you can opt to get a touch screen instead of a standard LCD screen.

STYLISTIC Q702

First impression on unpacking the Q702 test unit was the solid feel and clean, minimalist styling.

For work use, Microsoft Word and Excel programs pre-installed on the device are adequate for preparing short documents.

LIFEBOOK UH574

The Fujitsu LifeBook UH574 allowed for great mobility without being obnoxiously heavy or clunky. Its twelve hours of battery life did not disappoint.

STYLISTIC Q702

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.
