I plan on bringing this device to class this week a great K-8/K-12 device.
The convertible classmate PC is a fully functional laptop that can be converted from clamshell mode to a writing tablet with a variety of education-focused software applications designed to take advantage of this unique design (similar to your tablet pc's). The writing tablet is able to recognize handwriting, so notes are easily converted to digital letters and numbers.
This is just another example of Intel’s long-term commitment to education.
