Kids love following the examples of their parents, which is why the classic “do as I say, and not as I do” mantra does not work very well at all with them – far from it, in fact. Should your little one see you toting around a tablet, he or she will most probably ask you for one, and that was when you decided to get them something more kid-friendly that can withstand the rigors of life with a 5-year old. However, when you bring home one of those shiny new hybrid notebook-tablets, finding a model that can withstand the inquisitive hands of a 5-year old might be a little bit tough. Enter the Lexibook Laptab, which happens to be a small computer that is not too different from a netbook in its form factor, although it runs on the Android operating system, sports a touchscreen display, and a hinge which allows you to fold the screen flat and use it like a tablet.
It is not the best tablet or notebook in the market, but it gets the job done in keeping your little ones happy, where it will retail for approximately £149.99 in the UK. Hardware specifications for this convertible notebook include a 7” display at 800 x 480 resolution, 4GB of internal memory, a microSD memory card slot, 10/100 Ethernet and 802.11b/g Wi-Fi connectivity, and a 2800mAh battery, with Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich and educational apps, games and eBooks in tow.
