The 2go Convertible Classmate PC Netbook— A Gift They Can Use!

This powerful, durable, and lightweight netbook won’t get stuffed in the closet.

 

This time of year, many people are looking for great gifts for their family and friends. Let’s face it, who hasn’t gotten that ugly sweater or deep fryer only to stuff it in the back of the closet as soon as no one’s looking. These days, every dollar counts, so why not give a gift you know they’ll use? CTL’s 2go Convertible Classmate PC Netbook is a great gift idea for anyone in your family, be it college students, those who take their work out of the office, someone elderly who needs an easy-to-read interface, and of course, kids!

Many people know the 2go Convertible Classmate NL2 as a netbook designed for children to use in school. It features a rotating screen that when flat, functions as a tablet, and when turned upwards reveals a keyboard and becomes a netbook. It comes with Windows 7 and is compatible with a wide range of educational software. With a lightweight, durable design, this 10” ruggedized computer is virtually kid proof. It features a shock-mounted scratch- and water-resistant LCD screen, spill-resistant keyboard and touchpad, reinforced corners, and an easy-to- hold protective rubberized case with a retractable handle. A sensor shuts down the hard drive to prevent damage in the event of a fall.

However, the 2go Convertible Classmate NL2 is not only great for kids! At only 3.7 pounds, this convertible netbook packs a lot of power under thehood. So, the NL2 has the kids covered, but what about mom and dad? Well, if they’re part of the mobile workforce as are so many of us today, this netbook is great for professional use. It’s not only compatible with educational software, but also with any type of business software such as Microsoft Office. The keyboard is only 90% the size of a regular netbook, making it quite usable for adults. The 160 GB storage (with capacity to expand) gives it the ability to store all your business documents. It can also be upgraded to support a SSD (solid state drive) to increase reliability, storage, and battery life.It comes with an Intel AtomProcessor and has a battery life of up to 8.5 hours (nearly 40% more than previous netbooks). College students can use the NL2 to take notes during class by either using the stylus on the touch screen side or typing on the keyboard. When you include the 3G connectivity from AT & T, research is a snap with internet access anywhere, anytime. It’s light enough to toss in a backpack and trek across campus, and there’s even a built-in 1.3 megapixel video webcam for video chatting with family and friends.

Sometimes elderly relatives can be the hardest to shop for, but perhaps you’ve never considered getting them a computer. More and more seniors are becoming computer savvy and taking advantage of connecting with loved ones online. In fact, according to WebMD, older adults who use computers have reported fewer depression symptoms than those who don’t use computers. “Given the social and informational nature of older adults’ computer practices — e-mail, chat rooms, and health information gathering, for example — it seemed likely that this would be beneficial to an individual’s overall mental health,” says researcher Kathleen Triche, DSW, CSW. To assist with video chats, the NL2’s built-in webcam swivels independent of the screen, making it simple to communicate from any location in the room. And for seniors who need enlarged type for reading, the high-resolution touch screen on the tablet has a built-in e-Reader with easy-to-control page up/down buttons and optimized e-Reader software.

Starting at $537.90, the 2go Convertible Classmate PC NL2 Pro is an incredible value as a convertible, high-powered computer that is a tablet and a netbook in one product. It also comes with a one-year parts and labor warranty which lowers cost of ownership and offers peace of mind. When you consider those on your holiday gift list this year, from the kids to grandparents, this netbook is something they can use, so you won’t have to worry about them stuffing your gift in the closet when you’re not looking.
