HP Working on Small Laptop For Kids
HP said this week that it has will soon release its first of a new class of laptop computer- a smaller version geared towards children. The AP reported that the first HP product in that vein is set to make its debut later this month.
Called the “Mini-Note,” the computer is expected to cost less than $500 for a Linux-based model, and a bit more for one running Windows. Its main competitors are said to be Asustek’s Eee PC and various computers featuring Intel’s Classmate PC line.
The idea behind this product class, from HP’s standpoint, is that adults will buy one computer for themselves and another (of the smaller ones) for their kids.
