A lot of parents ask us which computers they should get for their kids. The answer is usually, “It depends!” If your child will be playing Minecraft and web-based games, making simple YouTube videos, and (safely) surfing the web, a computer similar to what we have in our computer lab is probably just fine. We have 11 of the 15.6″ Toshiba Satellite Radius laptops in the lab. The kids like that they are touchscreen, and the keyboard can be flipped back to use it like a tablet. We like them because they run reasonably well, have been relatively low maintenance, and have only given us minimal trouble in the past 18+ months. Plus the price is pretty good for the specs.
