New Windows 7 Touch Screen Tablet Netbook Seen in the Wild

 An updated Intel Classmate, this Webcam, Wi-Fi n, Waterproof, Touch screen Tablet is a joy to behold. Did I hear someone say spare handy media center device.. yeah baby








 Intel released some time ago the Classmate Netbook.  Now updated with the Atom Processor and up to 2GB Ram and with the possibly of windows 7 (as installed on this one), it is a spiffy little beasty,  well designed for schools is well worth a serious look for Netbook geeks (like me) as well. It detects wi-fi very fast (some such devices are not so quick on detection. More impressively it took an install of Windows 7 Ultimate with no problems at all (installed by memory stick) , as there is no internal DVD drive an external one can be added cheaply. 

Orginally designed for schools this spunky little number when windows 7 is added, is an even better device.

  1. Did you do a clean install of Windows 7?

    and did all the touchscreen elements work?

    Cant find any classmate Intel drivers for Windows 7

  2. Great news. Like you I have installedd Windows 7 on the classmate and it works just fine. It would be great to have the correct drivers for the touchscreen to do the flicks.
