Hi,

One of my coworkers asked me if this laptop is good for her 6 years old son to read books and games... what do EEs think? What might be the concerns?  thanks

I got a Lenovo ThinkPad X120e with Windows 7 Pro 64-bit and Office 2013 for our grandchildren (5 and 9). They use it occasionally but they use their iPods for games and stuff like that. The iPods seem more suited to that age.

That was what I told her at the beginning, but "$" is her concern....I guess she is trying to get a device that fits her budgets...so, on that note, do you think it would be good? or do you think it is too slow.  thanks

The X120e is a couple of years old (newer models out), has 4 GB of memory and an AMD CPU. It is not a speed daemon by any stretch, but also was only $499. So price was reasonable.
