Buy Asus Disney Netpal Netbook

Updated on April 17, 2013

Asus Disney Netbook Pretty in Pink

Buy a Disney Netpal Netbook by Asus for Christmas!

[UPDATE : Check out the video below to see a range of best netbooks for Christmas - very informative and well-presented video of a number of different netbooks]

Asus are the guys who invented Netbooks - orignally for people who couldn't afford notebooks, but they became so popular they expanded netbooks into a whole new segment of computing. They have now signed a deal with Disney and have produced the Disney Netpal netbook for kids. The age range is 6 - 12 but I would suggest it is more towards the 6 end than the 12. Be that as it may it would make a nice present and with Christmas fast approaching might be worth bearing in mind if you are willing to pay $350 for a computer for your kids.

Asus says the Disney Netpal makes computing safe, easy and fun! On the outside it certainly looks more appealing than the ordinary black netbook and I would think kids would prefer it. There are two colors to choose from - pink for princesses and blue for magicians.

Netbook Internet Safety Features Pre-Installed

The netpal netbook comes with pre-installed safety features, because we all know what's on the Internet and that kids should be steered clear of some of the stuff.

The Netpal has a whole range of Disney applications and games for kids, Disney graphics and a Mickey webcam.

Kids are able to brighten up their desktops with Disney themes and Pixar’s animated characters.

Features include :
Disney Mix for managing your stuff, Disney Pix for photo editing/creating, live streaming Radio Disney for washing your kids brains (oops did I really say that ?). There is also a memory game, a driving game, and a photo scrapbook.

The Asus Disney Netpal netbook is durable and kiddy-friendly i.e. it is reinforced and has a spill-proof keyboard, it also features ShockShield Data Protection to prevent data loss if it is dropped or banged. It is fitted with a "stable embedded polymer battery" that the kids can't remove thus avoiding electrical dangers.

      Hi Beauty - yes I guess it is surprising, but there is lots of stuff on the Internet some parents will find objectionable and monitoring what their kids do is just too tiring ! I'm glad mine has grown up and is big enough to look after himself now. But I guess people are just going to have to learn to deal with it, computers, netbooks etc... and the Internet seem to be here to stay.

      I was very surprised when I heard that there are people who don't let their kids use computers. There are so many wonderful free educational resources on the internet. The funny thing is, the same people would complain if their kids' schools didn't have computers. This Asus seems like a really good deal for parents who are nervous about letting their kids use computers.
