The computers are equipped with an Intel Celeron-M processor and a 1GB or 2GB Flash drive for the Linux and Windows versions respectively. Intel has said that the Classmate PC will cost around $350.
The OLPC project aims to ship several million of its PCs later this year at a cost of about $150 per unit.
Although the two projects sell notebook computers, they have different underlying philosophies.
The OLPC project sees itself as an educational initiative centred on openness that allows children to gain knowledge autonomously. The computers are designed from the ground up.
Intel, meanwhile, aims to deliver a fully functional laptop PC that mimics computers in the developed world.
