My Daughter is starting High School next year and we need to actually buy her a laptop this year as the school would like her to bring it along in November (for some reason)
Anyway the tech requirement is basic, no locked down at all - 4G ram, 10"+ Screen, 5+ hours Battery life.
The school doesn't care if it is a Chrome, Mac or Windows Machine.
Any recommendations on what worked for your family?
My general thoughts are that it should:
- be light enough to carry for a 13 yr old when walking to and from school.
- be strong enough to survive the life that kids lead
- Will be probably upgraded in a few years as the requirements at year 11 or 12 will be higher than year 9.
- Will like it to be still usable by my other daughter when it is handed down to her in 3 years time
