Toshiba Laptop for Kids

Toshiba L635 Laptop for Kids with Internet Access

Toshiba Kids Laptop with Internet Access

If you are looking for a laptop for kids or even a netbook for kids this Christmas then you must check out the latest laptop from Toshiba (see video presentation below) designed for and by kids in collaboration with Best Buy. The laptop in question is the new Toshiba Satellite® L635 Kids’ PC, which is also their first laptop designed specifically for kids aged 5 - 10. Kids have special needs when it comes to a laptop - first it needs to be interesting, second it needs to be kidproof and third it needs to give safe Internet access.

The Toshiba laptop for kids is basically the Satellite L635, a normal13-inch laptop, covered with a rubber neon membrane. The gray rubber membrane with splashes of neon was chosen by kids. Toshiba calls it "wipeable" (not spill-resistant), so it is not recommended that you let your kids spill their favorite drink on the keyboard.

To get the laptop under the $500 Toshiba stripped down the normal version by giving the kids version an Intel Celeron DC4600 processor, 2GB of DDR3 memory, and a 160GB hard drive, so not the fastest laptop on the market. The 13.3-inch screen makes it bigger than a netbook but not big by laptop standards.

It also has a DVD burner, 3 USB ports, a memory card reader, and Ethernet.

Toshiba have teamed up with the retailer Best Buy to produce and market a laptop specifically designed for kids, which would normally mean something that is low grade and cheap. However, the Toshiba Satellite L635 is far from being a low grade laptop and come to think of it, this laptop is not cheap either.

The Toshiba Satellite L635 is being sold at Best Buy with a starting price of $499

      Who said it was cheap ? This is what I said in the article "the Toshiba Satellite L635 is far from being a low grade laptop and come to think of it, this laptop is not cheap either."
