Best children's computer for 6 - 9 year old?


I am thinking of buying a child's laptop computer for Christmas for a 6 - 9 year old. I have looked at a number on Amazon and the best so far seems to be the Leap Pad version 2, it get a good rating. A number of children's computers get slated for slowness, easily broken and poor battery life and some people suggested buying the child an Android tablet instead. Any thoughts or comments on this please?

    Thank you. It looks as if tablets are getting much more of a thumbs up than I expected.

    Thanks. I wasn't thinking of spending quite that much, especially as she has access to a computer with keyboard if necessary but a laptop may be something to consider for the future.

    We already have an abacus and personally, I never figured out how to use a slide rule myself! I will consider a raspberry pi but not just yet. I think I put my eldest son off computers for life by buying him the ZX81 when they first came out.

    We ended up getting an Android tablet and it has been well used and enjoyed.
