This Kids PC goes beyond what's already out there in the market for kids to truly meet their computing needs with a full Windows 7 experience, Intel Celeron processor and DVD drive. Here is more info on the new Toshiba Satellite L635 exclusively for Best Buy:
The Satellite L635 Kids? PC features a 13.3-inch diagonal HD display1, a built-in DVD drive and Webcam with software designed specially with a younger user in mind.
Designed with kids in mind, the laptop boasts a unique wipeable keyboard, allowing for easy cleaning of smudges left by messy hands and a no-gloss Dura-cross textured finish that helps resist fingerprints.
The accompanying software gives parents the opportunity to help protect their kids from dangers online while providing a fun and safe universe for children to explore the Internet. The laptop comes pre-loaded with KidZui, an Internet browser made for children, as well as Net Nanny, which allows parents to set boundaries on how the laptop is used. The combination of these two programs allows the security of the laptop to adapt as children mature.
For all its kid-ready features, the laptop stands out for still having the power of a standard PC, making it a product to be used and enjoyed by the entire family. Pre-installed entertainment includes two Disney movies and the family-friendly LEGO Batman game.
