|From InfoWorld: Intel will announce details of the next generation of Classmate PCs soon, with new hardware and software that will make the laptops more user-friendly, the company said Wednesday.
Intel declined to provide specific details on the updated hardware and software features, but the new laptops will be announced in "a month or so," said Agnes Kwan, an Intel spokeswoman. The company also declined to provide more specific shipping or pricing information.
Overhauling of the laptop includes a design update. The third generation of Classmate laptops will have a new look and feel, Kwan said. The changes are based on feedback Intel got from educators and students using Classmate PCs, Kwan said.
The Classmate PC was originally designed as an educational laptop for kids in developing countries. The laptop's new version, Classmate 2, was announced earlier this year, and Intel expanded its availability to the general market through PC makers.
