We are planning to get a laptop for DD for Christmas so she will stop hogging mine
Would like it to be no more than £300. There seem to be quite a few at that price range with 11 (or so) inch screens. But I'm concerned that might be a bit small for working on a whole A4 page at a time (e.g. for the dreaded "create a poster" homework). She's used to using my desktop, so might find it a bit annoying scrolling up and down the screen.
On the other hand a 15 inch seems a bit big and heavy if she ever needs to put it in a school bag.
There don't seem to be many between those sizes and those we've found have been more expensive.
Anyone able to comment (preferably from the point of view of year 7-9 DCs that use a laptop for homework)?
Ds has an 11" HP laptop but he has quite severe dyspraxia and his writing is incredibly slow and painful and the end result is illegible so he types wherever possible so it needed to be light in order for him to be able to lug it around all day
