Reviews for the CTL 2Go Convertible Classmate PC

70% CTL 2Go Convertible Classmate PC NL2

The CTL 2Go Convertible Classmate PC NL2 is probably the best 10 inch convertible tablet I’ve tested to date. But that doesn’t mean that I thoroughly enjoyed using it as a tablet. The truth is, the NL2 was just good enough to give me an idea of what a truly good 10 inch convertible tablet experience would be like.

For the online price of $599, the 2go Convertible Classmate PC NL2 is steep for a netbook but reasonable for a durable convertible. Plus, the kid-friendly (and kid-proof) features make much of the extra cost worth it. If durability and educational value are your highest priorities, the Classmate is worth a look. We just wish a longer-lasting battery were included standard and that you didn't need to use the stylus for better touchscreen accuracy.

We should all pay homage to a little laptop known as the Intel Classmate PC. Without it, there wouldn't be a category called netbooks, and ultraportables in the 2 to 4 pound range would still cost you an arm and a leg. While most netbooks have gone on and evolved into more complex designs, the Classmate has been and still is a netbook aimed at classrooms, particularly in developing nations. The 2Go Convertible Classmate PC convertible netbook is better off staying in the classrooms.

Comment

Intel Graphics Media Accelerator (GMA) 950: Intel Graphics Media Accelerator 950 is an integrated (onboard) graphic chip on Mobile Intel 945GM chipset. It is a faster clocked version of the GMA 900 and supports no hardware T&L (Transform & Lightning) accelleration (which is required for some games).

These graphics cards are not suited for Windows 3D games. Office and Internet surfing however is possible.

Intel Atom: The Intel Atom series is a 64-Bit (not every model supports 64bit) microprocessor for cheap and small notebooks (so called netbooks), MIDs, or UMPCs. The speciality of the new architecture is the "in order" execution (instead of the usual and faster "out of order" execution). Therefore, the transistor count of the Atom series is much lower and, thus, cheaper to produce. Furthermore, the power consumption is very low. The performance per Megahertz is therfore worse than the old Pentium 3M (1,2 GHz on par with a 1.6 GHz Atom).


N270:

Power efficient, cheap and slow Netbook single core CPU. Because of the in-order execution, the performance per MHz is worse than Core Solo or Celeron M processors.

8.9": This is a very small format, which is used for UMPC, Netbooks or Subotebooks. There hardly exist any models with this display format. Working for a long time is uncomfortable. This tiny display is intended for outdoor usage.
The advantage is, that the mini-notebook can be small dimensioned and can be carried easily. Further the tiny display has the advantage, that it needs few energy, which improves the battery runtime and in consequence the mobility. The disadvantage is that the reading of texts is very exhausting for the eyes. High resolutions can hardly be used.» To find out how fine a display is, see our DPI List.


1.3 kg: This subnotebook is one of the most lightweight of all notebooks and can be carried very easily. There exist only few sub-notebooks, which weight less. 10 inch displays are normal for this class of weight.


CTL: US-American company, founded in 1989, which focusses computers and markets its own laptop brand with low market share.


63.33%: Such a bad rating is rare. There exist hardly any notebooks, which are rated worse.
