What's the best computer to get my 8 year old that is reasonably priced (she needs it to do homework)

Report as

Any laptop is good actually. If u feel its necessary though, i guess u could put parental controls on it but i got my 1st phone when i was 6 & 1st laptop when I was 8 with no restrictions. Just make sure its clear 2 them that if anything they dont know about pops up that they need 2 c u about it. i recommend dell, many computers these days r around 200-300 $. Check out the dell website

What? She seriously needs a computer, at 8, to do her homework? I have never heard of this before and I have 4 kids! 2 are slightly older and school age! Take your child to your public library and use their computers.

Its not wrong 4 a kid 2 hav their own computer. I got my own laptop at that age & a phone 2 years b4. U shouldnt freak. Its totally cool & sort of educational. I can figure out just about everything on almost any electronic in an hour now.

I never said it was wrong nor was I freaking out. It is just something I've never heard of and considering I do have kids slightly older, I SHOULD have heard about this by now... Lol, my kids aren't instructed to have computers to do their homework... Thank god... There's no way I'm buying my kids computers... I'm just glad I'm not in that situation. That's all. I think it's crazy a school insists an 8 year old own a computer!

Lol. I guess so! I have a 13 & 11 year old & a 4 & 2 year old... My older two aren't required to have any kind of technology what so ever and they attend one of the best school districts in North East Texas. I guess I'll deal with things as they come if my younger two end up being required to own computers or whatever! Yikes... I don't even allow my older two any kind of Internet access... This will be a difficult transition if it happens here in Texas!

just saw a commercial. Google chrome just came out with one for $249. I think it was best buy.

I would purchase a Netbook instead of a laptop. Cheaper and seems like it would have what she needs.
