The Latitude 2110 doesn't have a handle, but it's easily gripped and has an optional shoulder strap that attaches to dual Kensington laptop locks.

The Classmate's keyboard is good, but struggles to compare with its competitors. And that right shift key is an up arrow waiting to happen.

The HP keyboard narrowly missed first place in my book by being just a wee bit too clicky - this is strictly a religious issue, though. You can't go wrong with either the Dell or HP keyboards.

Keyboard...it's awesome! I write all the time and I'm happy to write all day on this netbook keyboard. See more highlights from the shootout on ZDNet Education.
