I was looking for a netbook for my daughter and stumbled upon this. It seemed to tick all the boxes for me as it was pink and girly, had enough memory and power to enable her to play SWF games on her favourite sites, it is robustly built to withstand those little angels and best of all it was fully set up with child monitoring software.

Once you start it up it allows you to open a special Disney account for your child. It gives them a very attractive desktop with a child friendly, Disney web browser (fully controllable and as limited as you require), as well as some simple games and utilities for them to play about with.

ASUS MK90H-PIN018X
Screen size 8.9 inches
Battery life Up to 5 hours
Memory (RAM) 1 GB
Storage (hard drive) 160 GB
Operating system Windows XP Home

To get the £218.49 just apply the promotion code 5NETBOOK.
It is not available for delivery, but available to collect from store.

Does it also run msn messenger and the like? Handy for chatting to old men who pretend that they are little girls. Trust me this happens.

Please supervise your children on these, especially if they are taken away to be used in bedrooms.

Would love to get this for my daughter, but I gather she's not keen on pink anymore :(

Like I stated, it has a very limited desktop, not like normal XP. It will not allow anything to be added unless it is by the parent with the password.

Don't understand that remark, but if it's just a clever chuck away line ha ha very funny, my sides are splitting. I mean, who would want they're child learning about computers in this day and age. It's not as if they are relevant is it.:roll:

Great price.

Any idea about screen resolution?
banned#8
It's worth checking the price of a plain white one, and buying a skin for it. Or just use your own stickers.

What a stupid couple of comments! I think its a great little laptop,my son would love one(not pink tho!),he goes on club penguin and moshi monsters on my laptop,this one is safer as he cannot accidently get on something he shouldn't. All children use pc's at school now,it's great to teach them to use one independantly.

I think it's overpriced for the spec - obviously you are paying the extra because it is pink and girly. Personally I find it a bit depressing that everything for little girls these days seems to be so pink and "Disney princess" focussed, as if they wouldn't engage just as much with a regular netbook. I wouldn't touch it with a bargepole for my daughter (not that she's likely to get her own £200+ netbook anyway). I am sure the OP will be vigilant in protecting her daughter as much as possible from the negative side of using the web, etc. but if you look around you can get something with better spec and Windows 7 (better parental controls) for the same sort of money.

I have a 4 year old daughter and she loves the Fisher Price Easy Link that I picked up a while ago in a bargain bucket at Tescos. You plug it in and it creates and environment that you cannot get out of without a password, this also means no internet and you can limit the amount of time it can be used and the amount she can print from. I couldnt recommend it highly enough, only problem is I can only find it on ebay as no one seems to stock it.

A lot cheaper than getting their own laptop and there is lots of games and learning to be had plus you can feel safe that they cannot go onto the internet.

A Disney themed "kids" laptop? Dunno ya know... they might end up being a Neo Nazi.

Something like this on another cheaper one would be cheaper.

there's also a blue model of this

though it's £10 more at amazon here http://www.amazon.co.uk/dp/B002TG38OI/ref=asc_df_B002TG38OI615599?smid=A3P5ROKL5A1OLE&tag=***************&linkCode=asn&creative=7974&creativeASIN=B002TG38OI

I agree, although no offense to the OP if his daughter likes only pink things but I do find the divide between girls and boys things very odd. Me and my brother shared or toys and some stuff traditionally girly (teaset) some boyish (car) and actually he prefered the teaset and me the car.. I just see this severe genderised thing as odd but that's just how I grew I guess. Also sounds waayy expensive for a kid, I never got that money spent on me as a kid *sob* XD

As to the poster who said having a computer is a bad way to raise a child, umm.. no. only if it is the sole raiser of the child. Computers and the net teach you a LOT, just as Tv e.g. Sesame Street gave me and my brother a boost in school as kids. Computers are relevant to life now as someone pointed out. Also, I remember that as a kid i was often bored because you couldn't have friends over every day or go to the park all the time if you're too young to go alone and your parents have to work, and your sibling is busy/with a friend. Most places you can't just play in the street, as long as it isn't stopping you from socialising or going outside when the opportunity is there then there's no harm in learning/having fun when you would otherwise be glum and bored!

Anyways this is off topic but links to my comment above, I saw this show about transgender kids and there was this little boy whose room was SOOO pink, girly, dolls, nail varnish on his hands etc, and his twin brother had JUST army stuff, soldiers, GI-Joes? etc and I found it so odd, not because the one boy was girly but just that there was such an extreme divide between any two kids.. would have thought the same if he were a girl. The kid may have been transgender but I just thought that with such an extreme binary in their house for what to like ie. very macho, or very girly, no in-between then that just makes for complications. (not saying it was due to the mother probably was advertising)

ps. Yeah protect your kid online but honestly think ppl overreact sometimes, maybe it's just cus me and my brother were always very logical and trustable, good common sense but I think kids are unlikely to have much happen to them if they stick to sites they know, and know not to meet up with strangers! Even if there's a bad pop-up which gets through, its not very hard to look away. I did however know a few people in school who were devoid of commons sense, parents whose kids are like this probably are aware of it and of course should be extra careful.

Longest. Post. Ever.

Children with laptops do better at school. I think it's important for kids to be computer literate from an early age as it puts them ahead of the herd. There aren't many jobs out there that don't involve typing on a computer at some stage, and if it doesn't, there aren't any jobs that wouldn't benefit from a bit of computer literacy.

I have the big brother of this netbook, the asus 1005HA, and it's a solid little performer, light, with long life battery. I'm perfectly happy with leaving the heavy duty computing to my desk top - i.e. gaming/ burning DVDs (not much else).

This is a reasonable deal as there aren't many other options out there for kids. It's a niche market.

Computers are great for teaching your kids English, specially grammar ;)

like i said i will be buying a lap/netbook for my daughter this year and this would have been great for her if the deal had been nearer xmas, she will only just be 6 then but shes always on her brothers and amazes us with what she is able to do, her reading ect has been very quickly grasped by a want to do and play more all by her self on the pc , its not a bad thing to buy a child or bad parenting its just a sign of how life has moved on since i was a child......she is still a very active sociable child with the added bonus of knowing her way round a laptop! not bad for a 5 year old!
