Dell’s introduced the Latitude 2100, a netbook built specifically for students. Two dozen Latitude 2100’s can be managed over the network and charged with a single power cable and Ethernet cable in Dell’s Mobile Computing Station.
The Latitude 2100 has a rubberized finish to make it easier to grip and prevent drops. An optional strap offers added protection. A network activity light lets teachers know when students are online instead of doing their school work.
Customers in the Americas and Europe can order the Latitude 2100 starting today for as low as $369
