Robust and resistant case ; Long battery life ; Well-equipped ; Good keyboard ; Many options ; Availble with Linux ; Many support options ; Silent system noise

High weight ; Bulky design ; Adverse interface arrangement ; Lurid indicator-LEDs ; Small touch screen ; low-contrast display, not outdoor-capable ; difficult to upgrade/maintain

Review: Dell Latitude 2100

 

It may be designed for children, but that doesn't mean the Latitude 2100 can't be enjoyed by big kids too.

Cool, tough rubber exterior coating. Adult-sized keyboard also accommodates the smallest hands. Responsive trackpad. Snappy performance. Clear window on front of chassis meant for student’s name tag

Tattletale web browsing light a little too Big Brother for our tastes. Optional extras drive up the price tag quickly. Chunky monkey power adapter

Dell Latitude 2100

 

Families, don't be surprised if you see the Dell Latitude 2100 show up in a classroom near you. As I've written in the past, Dell is aggressively targeting the K-8 education market with this line of rugged-looking netbooks. At the time I played with a...

A good touchscreen implementation ; Rugged-like

Big and bulky ; Skimps on hard drive space

Dell courts classrooms with this Latitude's kid-friendly touchscreen, but the big-boned netbook skimps on space.

Dell Latitude 2100 Netbook Review

Dell Latitude 2100 Review and Ratings

 

The Latitude 2100 is one of the most durable netbooks we've used, and its touch screen is a nice addition, but you'll pay a premium for both features.

Tough construction ; Excellent keyboard ; Network-activity light ; Available touch screen

Expensive ; Thick design ; Limited vertical resolution

Dell Latitude 2100 netbook

 

A ruggedised 10.1in Dell netbook designed specifically for students

Competitive price, touch screen, rugged chassis, long battery life, comfortable keyboard

802.11n wireless networking isn't standard, touch screen not sensitive at extreme edges, no on-screen volume indicator

Armed with an Intel Atom N270 CPU, 1.5GB of RAM and an 80GB hard drive, the Dell Latitude 2100 performs well. Thanks to its 6-cell battery it also lasts a long time away from an outlet. It's a comfortable netbook to use and its rugged design should...
