PeeWee PC Ships Power 2.0 Children's Notebook

PeeWee PC is a name linked closely to lower-priced, child-friendly laptops. Not long ago, the company introduced their Pivot laptop, and now they're announcing the compact PeeWee Power 2.0. This is basically a Classmate PC with a new label, and it's being marketed as an entry-level laptop for children 3-12 due to its ultra-compact design and sturdy, drop resistant exterior able to withstand demanding every day use. 


It weighs under 3lbs. and ships with a water-resistant keyboard, Windows 7, built-in camera, Microsoft Works 9.0, 15 educational games and two security software suites  – PeeWee Patrol and Privacy. To ensure the safest online experience for children, PeeWee Patrol and Privacy allows parents to limit how much time children spend browsing and gaming, block inappropriate sites and prevent children from changing system settings.  Additionally, the proprietary software allows parents to take screen shots, view browsing history and control the laptop remotely.


They aren't talking specifications, but we suppose for a machine of this caliber, it doesn't matter so much. The PeeWee Power 2.0 is available now for $449.99 MSRP at www.PeeWeePC.com.

I just looked at the specs this is basically a netbook for 200 dollars extra. While the software sweet may account for some of that I would say this is a ripoff. Of course most people don't know anything technically, or at least the largest significant amount, so they won't have any clue. Looks like a great way to rip people off for a company to me.
