CTL 2go Convertible Classmate PC review [Netbook]

The 2GO Convertible Classmate PC was announced just a few days back. Although it is named as a the classmate PC, it has the specifications of the latest netbooks. It goes one step ahead and incorporates a touchscreen too! Folks at laptopmag have got one for review and they are quite impressed with the Classmate PC.

The CTL 2go Convertible Classmate PC is one of the first netbooks to employ touchscreen technology successfully. Its sleek skin over Windows XP simplifies program launching, and preloaded applications allow kids to take full advantage of the tablet’s functionality. While its $499 price is slightly higher than most 8.9-inch systems (a similarly configured Acer Aspire one costs $379), its smooth tablet implementation and durable chassis make the 2go Convertible a great educational tool
