Engadget managed to get some fresh information about the new Classmate PC-like laptop from Intel. The notebook apparently won't bear the Netbook name we've been using. Instead, it will be known as the 2go PC. You know, because that sounds a lot more professional. Wait, no, maybe it's because the PC is targeted at kids, and you know how those kids like to combine their numbers and letters.

Anyway, here's what'll be inside the 2go PC:

  • Intel Celeron M CPU
  • Intel 915GMS chipset
  • 512MB RAM (upgradeable to 1GB)
  • 9 inch, 800 x 480 display
  • 40GB hard drive
  • 802.11b/g WiFi
  • SD card reader
  • VGA webcam
  • Windows XP
Engadget says the 2go should be available within 2 months for about $400. Overall, the 2go looks like a nice alternative to the Eee PC or Everex Cloudbook. But I can't figure out why they would put a 9 inch screen on this model and then limit the resolution to 800 x 480. My only real complaint with the first generation Eee PC is that 800 x 480 pixels just isn't enough to view some content. The upcoming Eee PC 900 will have an 8.9 inch screen with a 1024 x 600 display. Intel should really follow suit here.
