Intel has given its low-cost Classmate PC laptop a makeover at CES 2009, by adding a touch screen and making the 8.9-inch display swivel 180 degrees and morph into a tablet PC— designed for students. It is powered by 1.6Ghz Atom processor, a rotating camera and water-resistant keyboard.

The system runs Windows XP with learning software from Intel and its local partners on top, and features a 60GB hard drive and 512MB of RAM.
