Netbooks: Are they a viable option for your educational team?

~ Mary Marotta & Nicole Tomaselli

Description Session 2 (10:50-11:20am) -- Mary and Nicole collaborate regularly while integrating web 2.0 tools into classrooms at their secondary schools.  In this session they will put netbooks to the test while demonstrating some of their favorite web 2.0 tools.  Can a netbook handle the media-rich websites and other software we use with students - like Voicethread and TeacherTube?  Does it have enough power and speed to keep up with our multi-tasking teachers who may be pulling video into their wiki, checking their email and inking over a students' assignment at the same time?  Join us as we skype with a local SRO who uses her netbook to make presentations in wellness classes.  Come check them out...can netbooks work in your school?

Description - Netbooks, Subnotebooks, Minilaptop, and UMPC's

From Wikipedia

A subnotebook is a small and lightweight laptop. Synonyms include "ultraportable" and "minilaptop"[citation needed].

The term "ultra-mobile PC" ("UMPC") is also used, although this is the name of a platform of small form-factor tablet PCs (see UMPC). Subnotebooks are smaller than laptops but larger than handheld computers. They often have smaller-sized screens, usually measuring from 7 inches (17.7 cm) to 13.3 inches (33.78 cm)[citation needed], and a weight from less than 1 kg (2.2 lbs) up to about 2 kg (4.4 lbs)[citation needed]. The savings in size and weight are usually achieved partly by omitting ports or having removable media or optical disc drives. Many can be paired with docking stations to compensate.

ASUS Touchscreen ... coming soon

Official: Touchscreen Eee Coming This Spring

Asustek's Kevin Lin, vice president of the sales department, has released the information that the second-generation Eee PC lineup will offer touchscreen panels and possibly GPS support. They hope to ship up to five million Eee PCs in 2008.

The base model will ship with 1GB of RAM, rather than the current 512MB, and a larger SSD will be available: 8-12GB rather than the current 4-8GB. Shipments are expected to begin in May or June, and the price is expected to be about $500. Asustek is also planning to ship its E-DT priced at $199 at the same time.

Intel Convertible Tablet - new Jan 2009

The convertible classmate PC is a fully functional laptop that can be converted from clamshell mode to a writing tablet with a variety of education-focused software applications designed to take advantage of this unique design (similar to your tablet pc's). The writing tablet is able to recognize handwriting, so notes are easily converted to digital letters and numbers.  Link  



CTL's 2Go Classmate PC "netvertible" (Jan 08?)

CTL's sticking with the "2go" branding for its next-gen Classmate PC, but it's not hard to spot the difference: it's a convertible tablet. We've seen hands-on shots of the Intel concept a couple times before, but now CTL's starting firm up some details for its own OEM version, and even sent along a few new live shots of the device for our enjoyment. The specs are unsurprising for a netbook-style device (we suppose the proper term is "netvertible" now, yes?) with a 1.6GHz Atom 270 processor, 1GB of RAM, 60GB HDD and 802.11b/g/n WiFi, but the departure is in the tablet functionality. The 8.9-inch, 1024 x 600 screen handles stylus and finger input, swivels flat for slate usage, and has an accelerometer for orienting the screen and potentially other (read: games) usage.

UMPC and ULCPCs - ultra-low-cost personal computers (ULCPC)s

What are ultra-low-cost personal computers (ULCPCs)?

Dix: ULCPCs are a new and growing class of mobile computers designed for first-time PC buyers and customers interested in complementing their primary Windows-based PCs with companion devices with limited hardware capabilities.  These machines vary, but they typically have smaller screen sizes and lower-powered processors than more expensive mobile PCs. While originally intended for students and other first-time PC customers in emerging markets, we’re now seeing interest in these affordable devices in developed countries as well.
