Intel Classmate PC lands in UK for £239

Eee bandwagon rolls on

Secure remote control for conventional and virtual desktops

Intel's kid-friendly cut-price computer concept has come to the UK courtesy of local supplier Actronix.

Dubbed the JumPC, the Small, Cheap Computer is based on a 900MHz Intel Celeron Mobile processor and the chip giant's 915GMS chipset. It has 512MB of DDR 2 memory on board and 2GB of Flash storage - though you can select a 30GB HDD instead.

The unit has an Eee PC-style 7in, 800 x 480 display; two USB ports; 10/100Mb/s Ethernet and 802.11b/g Wi-Fi. There's a webcam too.

It ships with Windows XP Home Edition pre-loaded, and Actronix is also bundling EasyBits' Magic Desktop software to provide a more straightforward, child-oriented UI to the laptop's features. An integrated handle makes it easy for nippers to lug the laptop around.

All this comes in at £239, the supplier said. It's taking advance orders through its website, though the machine won't go on sale until early August, it admitted.
