I’m planning to get my almost 9 year old daughter a laptop or computer for her birthday. Although we do have a laptop to ourselves, we’re feeling she needs her own.With endless school projects and studies, she’ll be needing it more often. Can any parents suggest a good one that has the right softwares suitable for her because mine & hubbys laptop hasnt even got microsoft publisher. Thanks in advance – positive comments only please.

  • We bought our daughter a Toshiba and she’s had it for a few years now with no problems.


  • We have a Mac book pro and love it to death!


  • What laptop did you end up getting?


  • Any laptop you get now will probably have window 8 installed which is tricky for windows 7 users to get used to but a new user should be fine, just invest in Microsoft office, regardless of the laptop its got the best features. CHoose a reputable brand though, Acers, Toshibas, Asus all quality computers


  • Although tablets are more in routine for school goers but I think laptop would be a better option cause tablets are not convenient for assignments. I only have experience with hp and I am really satisfied with it. JB HiFi has good products with reasonable price.


  • Hope you found one that you like


  • Hope you found a good one! I bet your daughter was over the moon :)


  • what one did you get?


  • I have heard most of the schools are moving to tablets now – I’d check what the school has as they would be a good indicator of what sort of thing you’d need.


  • What did you end up getting?


  • Hope all went well with your laptop purchase.


  • What sort of lap top did you end up getting?


  • I would ask at somewhere like Harvey Norman or the Good Guys


  • What did you end up getting?


  • I would ask what they use at the school!
