Classmate PC live and in the flesh

Sure, we've seen it under those shiny stage lights, but this is the first time we've spotted the Classmate PC up close and personal. We can't say it looks quite as edible as OLPC's XO, but it also seems a bit more solid than its cheaper progenitor. Apparently the PCs won't just be limited to 1GB NAND, but will feature "several GB of memory, depending on the needs." The Classmate PC is also now being labeled as "sub $300," which is getting dangerously close to the XO pricetag, which seems to be creeping towards $200.
