If you dreamt of having your little ones learning with the aid of top notch technology, we have a great idea for you: the Classmate netbook/tablet combo. Introduced by company IRU, this model comes with a 10 inch swivel touchscreen display and an Intel Atom N2600 CPU.

This device has a rough surface and its housing allows the child user keep the tablet with confidence in his hands. The Classmate is also resilient to impacts and even water, plus the screen has its own protections. You must know that this hybrid has a handle for easier carrying around. With the rotatable display you can convert the netbook into a tablet very easily. There’s also a nifty software on board, that allows to profile a child and indicate his level of literacy.

Of course, parent control is activated and all associated restrictions are available. The product debuts this summer with 2 GB of memory, 500 GB HDD, a resolution of 1024 x 600 pixels, webcam, WiFi, card reader, 3 USB ports and Windows 7 Starter Edition as the OS. The device weighs 1.3 kg and should find its way to quite a bunch of schoolbags.
