They’ve now teamed up with Lenovo who will be manufacturing the latest generation of Classmate PCs. These PCs run on Atom processors and come installed with Windows 7, they’re packing Wi-Fi, an Ethernet port, a hard drive up-to 250GB, a 10.1″ LED backlit splay, a memory card reader, and a 1.3 megapixel camera. The PCs will range in price from $300 to $400. The laptops also come bundled with educational software designed for kids in grades K through 8.
