By on April 26, 2010, 1:47 PM
CTL has announced the launch of its new 2go Convertible Classmate PC NL2, which seems to be derived from the Classmate teased by Intel in March and is a successor to the "wildly popular" NL1. The ruggedized 10.1-inch netbook has a 1024x600 touchscreen and is powered by Intel's 1.66GHz Atom N450 processor.

Along with added screen real estate and processing power, the NL2 features up to 2GB of RAM, a shock mounted 160GB hard drive, a protective rubberized surface, rounded reinforced corners, a retractable carrying handle, and a water resistant, antimicrobial keyboard for sticky-handed youngsters. Other niceties include a 1.3-megapixel webcam that rotates up to 235 degrees.

The NL2 ships with either Windows XP or 7, and CTL offers an "education software stack" for academic individuals. Systems are currently available for preorder through CTL and authorized resellers with a base price of $499.

That device in the photo is actually the NL1 that was announced in 2008 and released in 2009. It had an 8.9" touch screen as opposed to the 10.1" screen on the NL2. It also had a non-standard 1.8" PATA HD (60GB), Intel Atom N270 CPU as opposed to a standard notebook 2.5" HD and the newer Intel Atom N450 CPU..

Updated, thanks. I simply reused the image we uploaded in March.
