Intel said Wednesday that it has inked a pact with the Portuguese government to supply 500,000 Classmate PCs to elementary school students.

The chip giant is part of the Magellan Initiative, Portugal's education technology plan. It was launched by Portuguese Prime Minister José Sócrates and Intel Chairman Craig Barrett.

The parties said that the plan is to deliver the Classmate PCs (all resources) in the upcoming school year. Intel added that it will provide technology advice and support to Portugal to manage and promote the education technology plan. Intel's Classmate effort competes with the One Laptop Per Child's XO laptop (all OLPC content).
