Live from the IDF 2011 show floor, Sascha has a quick look at the 5th-generation of the Intel Classmate PC.

It’s a very ruggedized computer for younger students. The thick plastic case has rounded corners and looks like it can survive some bumps (but don’t let Sascha drop test it, especially if it’s your only demo unit!). It also has a nice, sturdy handle for easy transport. Here are some specs:

  • 1.6 GHz Cedar Trail mobile processor
  • 2 GB RAM
  • 320 GB storage
  • 1366 x 768 resolution, swivel screen, single-touch capacitive and active digitizer
  • VGA and HDMI out
  • 2 USB 2.0 ports
  • SD card slot
  • webcam that can swivel 180 degrees to be front- or rear-facing
  • stylus that can be stored in a silo on the device
  • chiclet keyboard
  • large trackpad with two buttons (a rarity these days)

Intel encourages developers to create specialize education software for Classmate PCs. This looks like a great reference design with very capable hardware specs.
