Intel 75

The runaway success of Asus’s diminutiveEee laptopand the appearance of £99 laptops like theElonex low-cost lapsterhas sent manufacturers scrambling to produce their own cheap-as-chips Tiny Tim lappies.

Currently motoring up over the horizon is the Intel 2go PC (formerly known as the Netbook), a rugged little number manufactured by CTL, and looking like its aimed at the education market.

With a rumoured price tag hovering around a pocket soothin’ $400 (around 200 quid in UK spondulas), we could imagine this little fella appealing to a far wider audience, especially once they’ve given the specs the once over.

It may be cheap, but the 2go packs an Intel Celeron M CPU with 915GMS chipset backed by 512MB of DDR2 RAM (upgradeable to 1GB), a Realtek audio chipset with two integrated 1W speakers, and comes in Windows XP or Linux flavours.
