The term “good things come in small packages” is embodied in this laptop. ASUS has incorporated the latest intel processors to give users a powerful punch. Compact and extremely easy to use, this laptop would make a great purchase for students or people who work from home. It’s fast and reliable, not to mention the fact that the screen tilts back 180 degrees in order to provide users with a sharable experience. This means that you can collaborate with colleagues, peers or even the kids with ease, as this laptop opens flat onto surfaces.

Its unique, durable hinge design has been subjected to 20,000 cycles in open-and-close tests- so no need to worry when your child gets a hold of it.

Acer Spin 11.6″ Convertible Chromebook

Okay so we’ve cheated a little bit with this one. It’s priced just over £300- but only by a few pounds – so we thought we’d include it because it’s worth shouting about. This Chromebook is an excellent find. It’s convertible, which means it turns into a tablet. The HD screen is also a touch screen, so this is a great choice for kids who like playing hands-on games. The fact that the keyboard can be flipped in orderto create a stand for the tablet makes it great for watching movies when you’re travelling, or when you’re just chilling at home.

We think this laptop would be great as a kids first computer because it has a pressure-resistant cover which will withstand a 60kg weight, a shock-absorbent rubber bumper and reinforced honeycomb design to protect the internal components. Simply put, this means you can relax. It also has an impressive battery life of up to 10 hours, so you can leave the charger at home.
