A year after launching the 1st version of the Starling Netbook, Linux system builder System76 comes up with a new small laptop targeted at students, which will start shipping in the 1st week of May, 2010.

The Starling EduBook is a rebranded Classmate PC powered by a Pine Trail platform based CPU. It comes pre-installed with Ubuntu Education Edition Netbook Remix 10.04, which is not an official Ubuntu distro but probably combines the standard netbook edition with features and applications available in Edubuntu.

The ruggedized device is designed for students. It can be easily carried by its handle, comes with several learning software packages, has an integrated Kensington Lock, and is equipped with a 6 cell Lithium Ion battery.

The Starling EduBook was available from the System76 online shop for US $399 for the base configuration. System76 offers to donate old hardware to disadvantaged kids by ordering an extra shipping label for $10.00 to have it sent to Kids on Computers.
