The HP Classmate PC was already showcased at this year's COMPUTEX in April and offically announced last week.
The Mini 100e Education Edition is powered by an 1.66 GHz Intel Atom N455 processor, comes with 1 or 2GB of DDR3 RAM, a 160GB hard drive, has a 10.1" backlit LED screen, a 92% full-size keyboard, integrated microphone, VGA webcam, 2 x USB 2.0 ports, SD and MMC card slots, a lock slot, and optionally offers wireless support.
According to Engadget HP won't be selling the Mini 100e directly to customers, but will take bulk orders from schools, who will hopefully opt for the SUSE Linux Enterprise 11 edition to provide their students with a reasonable operating system.
