    What happened to the System76 ruggedized netbook?

    Will you guys be re-introducing it back in time? I can see myself buying one for my little brother down the line (He's in kindergarten) Because if you guys axed that, I think I would feel pretty depressed like some people were depressed with the first xbox 360's and Vista.

    We are working on a new Starling Edubook, but we currently have no ETA or other information about it. I'd keep an eye on our Facebook page for the most accurate updates:

    Unhappy Re: What happened to the System76 ruggedized netbook?

    I see this is over a year old. I promised by kids Edubooks by the 4th grade and they're so disappointed to see you don't carry them anymore. Any progress on this? I'm scanning through that Facebook page...

    We have since dropped plans for a new Edubook. It's difficult to hit the right points for an edubook, as our own standards maintain a level of performance that puts entry-level computers at higher prices than would be justifiable for such a product.
