It's usually pretty easy to write off laptops targeting children as cheap, gimmicky toys. However, this one is a little different. Why? Well from a computing standpoint, this 13-inch laptop contains no real surprises -- its powered by an Intel Celeron processor and features a DVD drive. Boring, right? But the extra "kid features" are where things get interesting. First, it has the obvious: a wipeable keyboard that's easy to clean and a textured finish to resist fingerprints. But this laptop takes it a step further and includes a web browser designed for kids (KidZui), safety software that enables parents to set boundaries on how the laptop is used (Net Nanny), as well as a variety of games and other kid-friendly media. So while this isn't a very powerful laptop, it certainly appears to be the most respectable attempt at a "computer for kids" that I've seen in a long while. This is a Best Buy exclusive.
