I have a major update regarding AIOU providing laptops to its students. Last time when I reported it was not that big. But now Open University seems serious in bulk-buying Intel Classmate PCs for students. Although they have 5 laptops to choose from, more concentration is being given to new upcoming models of Intel classmate PC.
The three UMPCs (Ultra Mobile PCs) are
1. Asus Eee PC (Rs. 18,400) – 7 inch screen, 512 MB, 900 MHz, 4GB SSD
2. Intel Classmate PC (Rs. 17,000) – 7 inch screen, 512 MB, 900 MHz, 2GB SSD
3. Intel Classmate PC (Rs. 20,000) – 9 inch screen, 512 MB, 900 MHz, 20GB HDD
All three UMPCs have Ethernet port, Wireless LAN, Built-in speaker and microphone, 2 USB ports. Intel Classmates also have built-in web cam.
On left, you see ASUS Eee PC, Center 9-inch Classmate PC, and right is 7-inch Classmate PC.
If you are a student of AIOU, you can get these computers without any markup and on easy installments by filling the form on intel-aiou joint website, pcforall.net
