I'm just glad someone has the sense to buy their child a REAL laptop. All these pathetic childrens versions of technology are just toys - if you give children their own camera, laptop etc and teach them that it's something to treasure then I think they will. Saying that a new VAIO is not the way forward!

Either a netbook or get something from eBay...

If you have a desktop you could rip them and setup a share on the laptop?

i was going to suggest an EEEPC

one here on ebay, currently £156, number 130263935401
or
here, part way down for as little as £108.09
or
here from £156.48

obviously I cannot vouch for the shops themselves, but i've had one in the past and they're wicked!
