Dell’s Latitude 2100 Full Aussie Details

I didn’t get a chance to update yesterday’s post on the Dell Latitude 2100 educational netbook with all the local details, so here they are in a new, fresh post for your enjoyment.The 2100 will start at $706 in Australia, available today. The starting configuration will consist of:
• LCD w/o camera and w/o touch screen
• 1G Memory
• 80G HDD
• Ubuntu
• Dell Wireless 1397
• 3Cell battery
• 1 Yr NBD
• No Case

Although the 2100 is available at a volume discount, that price seems on the high side for a netbook with an Ubuntu OS and a 3 cell battery, without a webcam and only an 80GB hard drive. It is good to see a company get behind education hardware, but I’d be hoping my kid’s school ponied up the cash for this rather than picking one up myself.
