Intel Corporation today announced the availability of the latest Intel classmate PCs, powered by the new Intel® Atom™ processors.

The upcoming classmate PCs offer an enhanced user experience, increased ruggedness, improved battery life -- up to 10 hours on a single charge -- and are more affordable. The PCS also feature multi-touch and premium writing experiences, in conjunction with palm rejection technology, enabling students to write directly on screen. The textured touch screen, special stylus and handwriting recognition software create a “write on paper” experience. The built-in camera, photo view, media player, and drawing applications allow students to create and consume multimedia learning content.
