An Affordable Computer for Kids from Kid Computers


My daughter recently spilled water on her computer and killed it.  She was devastated because she didn’t know how she could do her schoolwork without a computer.  Luckily, hers was repairable, but we could have been facing a considerable expense if we had to replace it.  Kid Computers understand how important computers are to education, and they understand how the cost can be prohibitive for many families.  They offer a line of computers that are designed to withstand the rigors of school and library use, and they have a line of more cost-effective computers for home use.  For example, their Wonder Computer Lite PC desktop (shown) sells for only $299 (monitor not included).  They have other desktops, laptops, netbooks, and all-in-ones will give you the computer your child needs and will fit a variety of budgets.  During October, they’re including a free software package ($200 value) with the purchase of their all-in-one computers.  While you’re checking out their computers, make sure you also check out their line of keyboards, mice, computer furniture, and other accessories designed for children.

    I’d be careful of that $300 computer it’s very old technology and pretty stripped down. If you use their engine to configure it to something approaching a reasonable home machine you quickly climb to close to $1,000. There are far better deals out there.

    Their keyboards and mice are interesting. We purchased one of the mice and it was “cute”, but not particularly well-built or in any way rugged.

    I bought their wonder touch for my 5 year old about a year ago and its still going strong. but i did pay a hefty price for it, im not too sure about this so-called $200 system though…

    We’re using the HP 310-1020 TouchSmart’s for our kids. We’ve only had them for two months, but no problems so far. Best of all they cost $400 each from Woot with full HP warranty..

    @James if you’re looking for a good educational website give a try. My sons (3 and 6) love it and it really has helped from learning their alphabet on.
