We are thinking of getting our son a notebook or laptop for his ninth birthday. He will need software such as Word, PowerPoint and Excel, and in time he may get into internet coding. Kuv kuj xav tias nws yuav tau ib tug zoo lub tswv yim yog hais tias nws yuav dock nws ces nws yuav yuav siv ib daim nas thiab keyboard.

Peb xav kom nws kav nws rau ib tug thaum tiam sis peb tsis muaj nyiaj yuav siv nyiaj ntau ntau. Kerry

Raws li deb raws li kuv tau qhia los ntawm kuv txhua xyoo mus ntsib mus rau TXAJ (yav tas los lub British Educational kev kawm thiab Technology Qhia), feem ntau cov tsev kawm ntawv tam sim no siv neeg-qib Android / Kua ntsiav tshuaj thiab qhov rais laptops. Txawm li cas los, TXAJ 2015 pom ib tug qauv ntawm lub qhov rais 2-nyob rau hauv-1 "detachables", uas yog dab tsi kuv xav kom.

Ib tug detachable (Kuv ua hais tias mus) yog ib lub qhov rais convertible qhov twg ib tug kov-screen ntsiav tshuaj plugs rau hauv ib tug keyboard khoom. Zoo paub piv txwv muaj xws li cov Asus T100TAF thiab tag nrho cov Microsoft chaw. Dual functionality txhais tau tias lub tsev kawm ntawv tsis muaj yuav cais cov ntsiav tshuaj thiab laptops, thaum lub sij hawm Lub qhov rais App Studio ua rau nws yooj yim rau cov xib fwb los tsim yooj yim lub qhov rais 10 apps tsis muaj cai.

Lub muaj zog txuas nyob rau hauv laptops yog lub pob khawm, thiab tib neeg yuav kev nyuaj siab lub pob khawm ntawm lifting lawv laptop los ntawm qhov kev tshuaj ntsuam. Lub tswv yim phem. Nyob rau hauv detachables, lub ntxaij yog feem ntau ruaj los muaj zog hlau nplaum, thiab lub hinges saib npaum li cas tsis taus. Tseeb, ib co detachable muaj tsis muaj hinges - xws li cov Lenovo Miix 3 thiab lub dabtsi ntsiv Dell XPS 12 - Tab sis koj yuav tsis yooj yim hloov lub kaum sab xis ntawm lub screen.

Kuv xav yog li ntawd xav kom ib tug detachable ntev tshaj ib tug ib txwm laptop, los yog ib tug convertible nrog ib tug 360-degree pob khawm.

Lub qhov rais 10 tsis muaj ntau li cov ntsiav tshuaj apps raws li Android, los yog cov zoo ntawm cov kua iPad apps, tiam sis feem ntau qhov chaw yuav them, thiab lawv nyob nraum tseem zoo li ib tug dawb lawm. Thaum muaj tsis yog ib tug lub qhov rais app, koj tseem siv tau tag nrho lub dag lub zog (zoo tshaj ntsiav tshuaj zoo) web browsers and run millions of traditional Windows programs. Tsis tas li ntawd, ntawm chav kawm, there are several ways to run Android apps on Windows PCs, xws li BlueStacks thiab AmiDuOS.

Laptops for kids

The entry-level laptop for kids is the HP Stream 11. This is quite robust for its low price (£169.97 to £199.99), but it doesn’t have a touch screen, and the screen isn’t detachable.

For the past few months, the red HP Pavilion X2 10-n055na has been my pick of the detachables at £249.99. It feels more solid than the old Asus T100TAF, has a better keyboard, and a decent screen. Txawm li cas los, Asus lawm xwb launched tus T100HA, uas pab txoj kev rau lub Pavilion X 2 10, tab sis yog tus keyboard yog me ntsis me me.

Lub Asus T100HA yog ib tug ntawm cov thawj lub khw muag khoom laptops rau nkoj nrog qhov rais 10 preinstalled, thiab lub qhov rais 8.1 cov cav tov yog tam sim no raug tso los ntawm lub khw. PC ntiaj teb, piv txwv li, muag lub HP Pavilion X 2 10 nrog qhov rais 8.1 rau £ 199,97, ces kuv yuav tsis tau ras yog hais tias lub qhov rais 10 version tshwm sai.

Kuv twb tsis quav ntsej li yav tas los hauv lub Acer Hloov 10 thiab 11 vim hais tias lawv raug nqi ntau dua - feem ntau yog £ 300 mus £ 350 - tab sis lub Hloov 10E tej zaum yuav muaj nqis ib saib nyob rau ntawm £ 229,95. Kuv twb tseem tsis quav ntsej li cov Toshiba Satellite Nyem Mini, vim hais tias kuv xav hais tias lub 8.9in screen yog heev me me. Tab sis yog hais tias tus lub qhov rais magnification chaw mus siab txaus, kab tias nws yog tsis heev me me rau ib tug me nyuam. Tej zaum koj yuav tau los sib piv ob ntawm cov cav tov nrog ib tug Asus T100HA nyob rau hauv ib tug John Lewis khw, thiab Yauhas Lewis muaj xws li ib ob-xyoo guarantee.

Tag nrho cov kev nkag-qib ob-nyob rau hauv-sawv daws yuav muaj Atom-raws li processors thiab 2 GB ntawm lub ntsiab nco, nrog ib tug 32 GB eMMC Flash nco nti rau muab cia. Lawv yuav obviously yuav zoo dua nrog 4 GB ntawm lub cim xeeb thiab 64 GB ntawm cia, tab sis xws cov cav tov nyuaj rau nrhiav, thiab raug nqi ntau dua. Lub ceev fix yog ntxiv ib qho ntxiv 32 GB los yog ntau tshaj cia rau ib tug microSD daim npav. Yog hais tias koj yuav tau ib ob-nyob rau hauv-ib tug nrog qhov rais 8.1 thiab txawj tej yam ntxiv mus rau lub qhov rais 10, ntxiv daim card ua ntej: ib tug ntawm cov 32 GB cov cav tov kuv kho tsis tau muaj txaus qhov chaw dawb kom tiav qhov installation.

Kuv tabtom piv txwv uas £ 250 yog lub feem ntau koj yuav xav kom siv mus rau ib tug laptop rau ib tug me nyuam. Yog hais tias koj xav kom siv mus tsawg, nrhiav ib tug txiav-nqi Lenovo Miix 3. Peb lub hlis dhau los, I bought a new one for £150, but today I’d get a £250 Asus T100HA instead.

Keyboards and docks

Most laptops will work with a “universal” docking station, xws li cov Plugable UD-3900, but I don’t think you need one. Most laptops will let you plug in an external USB or Bluetooth keyboard without using a docking station. There are plenty of colourful keyboards designed specifically for kids, and numerous touch-typing tutorials.

Txawm li cas los, lub Asus T100HA has a new USB Type C port, so you will need a small adapter.

Setting up

Kuv xav tias koj yuav npaj mus yuav cov system cov thawj coj rau koj tus tub lub laptop, thiab muab nws nws tus kheej tus me nyuam tus account. Qhov no cia koj teem sij hawm txwv, thaiv tsis tau tsim nyog websites, teem muaj hnub nyoog txwv kev ua si, thiab qhia kom meej ntau npaum li cas nyiaj (yog hais tias muaj) nws yuav siv online. Koj muaj peev xwm tswj cov chaw remotely los ntawm account.microsoft.com/family.

Lub qhov rais 8.1 thiab 10 yuav email rau koj ib tug txhua lub limtiam cov ntaub ntawv ntawm koj tus tub cov kev ua ub: yuav ua li cas tau ntau ntau teev nws siv nws lub PC, lub websites nws mus xyuas, thiab ntev npaum li cas nws siv nyob rau hauv nws nyiam apps. Koj tsis muaj rau siv qhov kev pab no - nws yog los tsis ua cas - tab sis nws yog muab rau los ntawm lub neej ntawd.

Muaj coj mus muag cawm xws li Magic Desktop, tab sis hais tias yog tiag tiag rau cov me nyuam yau.

Koj yuav tsum teev rau lub laptop los ntawm lub sij hawm rau lub sij hawm, siv koj cov thawj coj account, mus saib hais tias txhua yam yog OK. Tus me nyuam tso nyiaj yog zoo nkauj ruaj ntseg, thiab lub qhov rais 10 yog kho tau, tab sis nws yog ib tug zoo tswv yim zoo kom ib tug qhov muag rau tej yam, thiab khiav ntxiv anti-virus tshev.

Txhawb kom koj tus tub mus cawm cov ntaub ntawv, cov duab thiab cov lwm cov ntaub ntawv mus rau nws tus Microsoft account tus dawb OneDrive online cia, thiab / los yog mus rau lub SD nco daim card. Koj muaj peev xwm mus ib ntus hloov lub card rau koj tus kheej PC yuav rov qab nws mus thiab ntxiv duab, nyiam music ntaub ntawv, YouTube yeeb yaj duab thiab lwm yam ntsiab lus.

Muaj free versions ntawm lub Microsoft Office cov kev pab cuam nyob rau hauv OneDrive, thiab koj yuav nruab ib co raws li dawb apps los ntawm lub qhov rais tom khw. Kuv tsis xav hais tias nws yog tsim nyog yuav los txhim kho tau tag nrho cov kev pab cuam desktop rau ib tug 9-xyoo-laus, tshwj tsis yog tias koj tau cuv npe rau Chaw ua hauj lwm 365 Tsev. This provides the full Office suite for five people on PCs, Macs, tablets and smartphones, plus a terabyte of storage for each user, for £79.99 a year. Txwv tsis pub, LibreOffice is a free alternative.

You could also pre-install Minecraft as a program or an app, lub Scratch programming environment – have a look at Getting Started with Scratch first – and Khan Academy. You can pin these and other programs to the taskbar, or put icons on the desktop, to make them easier to find.
