I want to buy my two boys a laptop (or netbook) each for Christmas. I don't have an endless budget (£600 ish for both). My eldest who is nine is always on my PC in the office. They do want to play games on them, but not necessarily the very latest cutting edge games as they have a PS3 and Wii for that.
Can anyone give me a bit of guidance? Are netbooks really worth the money - the spec seems so low. What spec should I look for (dual core?) - I'm a bit lost.
