Portland, Ore. – July 18, 2008
CTL said today the school district of McMinnville, Oregon has purchased nearly 500 2goPC™ netbook computers which the company introduced this past April at a price of between $400 and $500.
McMinnville will make the 2goPCs available to all its third graders, freeing up larger, more expensive laptops for its older students.
The 2goPC measures approximately 9-in. by 7-in. by 2-in. and weighs less than 3 lbs. It is based on the Intel® Celeron® M processor and the Intel 915GMS chipset; and has a 9-in. 800 x 480 LCD screen, 40GB Seagate hard drive, two integrated speakers, two USB ports, RJ-45 10/100 LAN ports and 4-cell Lithium Ion batteries with three to four-hour typical usage time.
The netbook comes equipped with Windows XP (Linux is also available), wireless internet capability and the ability to run today’s common applications. Also, it supports collaboration software, allowing students, teachers and parents to share information.
