The chipmaker claims that they are pushing into rural China and other emerging markets in Europe and Southeast Asia, which is where the two million figure primarily comes from. They are doing little to alleviate concerns from netbook vendors that they will erode the netbook market with their own product, aside from claiming that is not their goal. With Intel currently fabbing chipsets, boards, CPUs, GPUs and pretty much every other component found in both netbooks and notebooks, they are in a very interesting position.
The Classmate PC's goal, of course, is not market share – at least not according to Intel. It, along with the XO laptop and the OLPC project, is aimed at getting millions of laptops into the hands of children who have never had the chance to do such before. Still, that doesn't mean Intel won't be able to leverage their position as one of the very few hardware providers for such a market to their advantage.
