Daewoo's laptop is child's play – literally
The Lukid, aka Intel Classmate PC
Further details have emerged online of Intel's second-generation Classmate PC sub-laptop, but this time the education-oriented unit's been branded by Daewoo.

The chip manufacturer unveiled the second-generation CPC at IDF in Shanghi back in April. Although Intel defines the CPC spec, the firm leaves manufacture and final details to system suppliers that work with its production partner ECS.
The PC has a 30GB HDD and a nifty carry handle
According to a report by Aving, Daewoo’s version of the child-friendly PC - dubbed as the Lukid - is powered by Intel’s 900MHz Celeron processor and runs on Windows XP. There’s a 512MB memory on-board and the hard-drive capacity is 30GB.
The PC also sports an SD memory card slot and includes a USB port. The machine’s LCD display measures 9in and has an 800 x 480 resolution.
The Daewoo Lukid will be available in Korea for KRW 549,000 (£270/€340/$530), although a release date hasn’t been set. It’s not known if the PC will be released into Europe.
I keep seeing 'Likud' not 'Lukid'.
Can't imagine why though.
Can we have a rule that anyone obviously not getting the whole laptot thing is moderated out on sight? It's getting bloody tedious.
Tykes and computers
What the hell do kids really need computers for? Certainly not for education.
In my interactions with school age kids it is getting obvious that research skills are getting worse and kids are falling into the trap of just believing the first Google hit they get, doing a cut and paste and they're done.
But, is it ToughBook quality?
Remember, the trogs may attempt to hit each other with them. Wouldn't want to damage the sensitives inside, forcing the parents to buy a new one in expaseration every week! (Or every day, if some tales of certain schools are anything to go by.)
lets see I could pay $530 USD for that or $479 USD for this
