why settle for monochrome LCD screen toy laptop when you get a real one for your kids? adults won’t settle for less, why should kids? i wanted to say this for a long time: i wish those pretend-to-be toy laptop doesn’t even exist. seriously. luckily, we have the PeeWee PC Pivot 2.0 Tablet Laptop to keep the kids happy and actually learn something about computer.

granted it is an expensive gadget for kids as compared with cheaper “adult” notebooks in the market today but the PeeWee PC Pivot 2.0 Tablet Laptop is designed (or rather, conditioned) for kids. with its ruggedized outer casing which is drop-proof (tested with 50cm drop test) and spill-resistant keyboard, it will take just about any torment your kid can unleash on it.

there are real laptop for kids, and also touchscreen for kids (such as the upcoming Fisher-Price iXL) but the Pivot 2.0 is both. its a “dual mode” PC meaning its a resistive touchscreen tablet and a PC laptop in one package. powered by Intel Atom N450 1.66GHz processor and Intel 945GSE Chipset, the PC also features 160GB 1.8″ PATA HDD, 1GB RAM (upgradable to 2GB), 2-in-1 SD/MMC card reader, USB 2.0 ports, touch pad and a touch screen that’s capable of handwriting recognition.
