    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...

    whats your budget?

    i keep saying it but Dixons refurbs-have a look?

    around £200 if possible

    you looking for a XP, vista or linux based system?

    the elonex is what you want...

    I have seen on the net there are special laptops for children for only £100. you may have to google it because i can't remember who makes them. they come in loads of colour sthough. specially designed for kids.

    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!

    dixons.co.uk/mar…Yes

    they update regularly-if you just want cheap maybe its worth looking? i dont understand specs so maybe someone could check it out who does? i got a dual core for £240
