  • nope, I don't personally see the need for kids to have their own computers

  • My sisters (16 and 18) got one for Christmas last year. They love them and took them to college with them this past Fall. They liked having something to do all their homework on and not have to worry about anyone deleting it. IT also came with Skype so we can talk to them while they are away at school. It's like a mini laptop, I also enjoyed using it when visiting them. It was so much nicer than a desktop. My younger sister (8 & 10) really wanted one too!

  • My husband's a computer programmer, so we have all kinds of computers including a netbook. My daughter enjoyed the netbook before she had a laptop. If your kids are tweens it might be a good investment, but at some point a laptop will probably be more useful.
