Hi im looking for a laptop/notebook for my 5 year old, so he can start learning more about them.
the condition isn't important will even consider broken ones.
Ideally I would like to pay nothing for it, so if anyone just want to clear some space and help a bloke and his lil boy out please let me know.

Thanks.

Can't he just use your pc/laptop/netbook?

if a broken one is ok - why not just give him a keyboard to `play` with

Like my dd does :)

They learn the basics at school - she nabs mine to make her own spreadsheets and databases lol

try asking on your local freecycle if you're not wanting to pay for it, occasionally see them on ours

Someone's got a laptop advertised on the fs/ft board for £150. Think Netto were advertising one for around £100

Grab an old one from ebay, or your local repair shop, or even a relative, put Linux (Ubuntu preferably - it comes with some great games) on it and it will work a charm. Get Open Office if you want to teach him about the various office packages.

the best advice is go to yr local library and book in a slot for a hr a day after his school time that way you can show him the ropes and he can get to use a working model for free good luck christine:thumbsup:
