I have just purchased a refurbished netbook laptop for my children aged 7 and 6 as their Xmas gift. I chose not to get them an expensive 'up market' laptop as A) I can't afford it and B) I don't think they need one so expensive. I know there's always tablets but they had one previously and don't really know how to use it and they prefer a laptop type (they borrow mine for homework) but I feel bad for only getting them a refurbished small laptop. It is good condition but do you think it's worth it now that technololgy has moved in.? And has anyone else purchased the same thing? How did your children take to it?
