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.
