Disney Netpal netbook to be made by Asus

Brenda Barron - Jun 17, 2009

Disney announced today that they plan to team up with computer maker Asus to produce a new netbook called the Netpal. This new netbook is targeted at kids between the ages of 6 and 12 and will offer them up simple yet useful features.

Modeled after the Eee PC, this netbook will have Wi-Fi, an Intel Atom processor, Windows XP and an 8.9-inch display. The interface, however, will feature custom Disney themes like Cars, Toy Story, Mickey Mouse and others.

Parental controls are included as well, allowing you to control web browsing, e-mail and more. Other programs include a memo pad, stopwatch and calculator plus access to Radio Disney. There’s a 16GB SSD and a 160GB HDD version and several color options including “Magic Blue” which features Mickey Mouse logos on a blue background and “Princess Pink” which features a pink base with flowers. You can get the Netpal in July for $349.99.
