RM to push new HP sub-laptop to schools

Good things come in small packages

Secure remote control for conventional and virtual desktops

RM has been signed up as HP’s only UK distie for its 2133 Mini-Note laptop intended for the education market.

The firm said that it has tied up an “exclusive partnership” to supply schools and colleges across Blighty with HP's dinky new sub-notebook.

The computer giant launched the machine, which rivals the Asus Eee PC, earlier this week. RM will begin selling the unit in May in the UK and Ireland with a price tag of around £299.

RM started flogging the Asus sub-notebook to school kids across the land last November.

RM CEO Tim Pearson claimed: “Low-cost, high capability computing devices like the HP Mini-Note mean that educational establishments can realistically aim for one computer per student.”

In related RM news, the company on Monday acquired a 25 per cent stake in Inclusive Technology Ltd, which supplies special educational needs and early years' products and services in the UK.

Financial terms of the deal were kept secret. ®
