  • Offered in five bright colors (School Bus Gold, Chalkboard Black, Ball Field Green, Blue Ribbon, and Schoolhouse Red)
  • Personalized window on back of battery pack for school logo or name
Hardware-wise, the 10.1-inch 2100 comes equipped with an Intel Atom N270 processor (1.6GHz, 533MHz frontside bus, 512KB L2 cache), up to 2GB of memory, HDD or SDD (16GB SSD comes standard), integrated Intel GMA950 graphics, 3-in-1 media card reader, and choice of Ubuntu, Windows XP, or Vista. Dell also says the optional touchscreen is a first for education netbooks.

The 2100 is available now starting at $369.
