Intel brings Classmate PC to EU<br />

Intel is expanding the distribution of its Classmate PC to US and European retailers - marking its entry into developed economies. The machine is already available in India, Mexico, and Indonesia.

The PC is designed for use by school children and costs just £125 - £175. The company is conducting pilot programs of the PC in schools in the US and Australia.

Intel designed the PC specifically for school children in developing nations. It is built by local manufacturers, with customised software configurations for the needs of specific local markets.

A number of other manufactures already provide low-cost computers for children. The OLPC XO-1 from the One Laptop Per Child initiative, has been available via retail for some time.

Asus has also launched a low-cost PC for the US, Japanese and European retail markets. The Linux-based Eee PC sold 350,000 units in the first quarter it was available in the UK.
