Not true. If adding mods - which every 9yr old does - any laptop will not do. You do actually need more than onboard/chip graphics for most of the more demanding mods.

You can pick up a basic PC for £50 (or less); as long as it isnt too old, you can upgrade the cpu, memory and graphics card as you can afford to.

My 3 y/o has a scrap built PC made of left over parts and a mobo from a dead PC; it needed a new cpu (99p Amazon) and a better heatsink (£12 Amazon). Now she has a PC that is faster than her mums - which cost £350.

(Am I a bad parent for letting her play LOTRO ??)

Tesco Outlet have refurbished laptops with 12 months warranty, had few refurbs all been brand new.

Thanks guys, I meant to include a link to a pc on ebay. I was thinking that as long as it has quad core and some kind of graphics card and operating system I'm ok? I think as he gets older he'll want a better system so I thought I could add better bits later iykwim?
