Summary: The Classmate Convertible PC is a small touch-screen tablet PC built by Intel (see their cool promo video ) and re-branded and sold by a number of different retailers under various names (Schoolmate Convertible, M&A Companion Touch, CTL 2Go Convertible Classmate). Its toy-like appearance is designed to be attractive to children, but its ruggedized construction could make it useful for adults as well.
Pros: Good price for a touch-screen convertible tablet;, Sturdy and well built to take some rough handling by children or adults;, Easy to use;, Runs Windows 7, though not an option from all resellers as of this writing.
Cons: Limited support from resellers, none from Intel;, Keyboard may be too small for touch-typists;, Processor too slow for built-in web cam to be useful;, Toy-like appearance may be unacceptable to adults.
