The lack of good education for kids worldwide is something we should be very concerned about. Back before Facebook and a million other distractions online, I remember computers being used to teach me a lot of valuable skills I still know to this day. So it’s nice to see that HP’s Mini 100e is poised at being an affordable, yet powerful children’s computer (in comparison to other children-aimed computers). It has the Intel Atom CPU that’s in almost all netbooks nowadays. It also has a spill-resistant keyboard, bright LED to show network connectivity, and a handle for easy carrying. Let’s just hope the schools have networks that block anything distracting.
Pricing is not expected to exceed $300, which is great for students all around the globe. The HP Mini 100e is expected to start shipping to schools in July.
