    Holy thread revival. My daughter uses the laptop for YouTube and that’s about it. Moved to a Mac and iPad Pro recently. Does the job for my editing needs

    It’s absolutely riddled with grot and porn. Stunned you let her have it, despite how well you’ve tried to scrub clean the evidence.

    The best part is the amount of technical responses you’re still going to get to this thread, as nobody bothers to check the post date!

    Happy repairing amigo!

    The hipsters all use the Chrome OS now so if you want them to look cool maybe one of those but I've never used one. If I was getting something smaller I'd probably try one of the 2 in one things like https://www.microsoft.com/en-gb/p/surface-go/8v9dp4lnknsz?activetab=pivot:overviewtab and get their keyboard or one of those convertible things. I have a Lenovo Yoga which you can turn into a tablet or put in tent mode (neither of which I ever use) but kids might like it. Could try https://www.currys.co.uk/gbuk/compu...VFp7VCh1GSQRTEAkYAiABEgK-lvD_BwE&gclsrc=aw.ds

    The Go is good for the money. Having to buy the extras is a bit of a tinkle take. You can just buy a decent little Bluetooth keyboard for £20 (eg Artek). And you can use that keyboard for other devices.

    Chromebooks are great for a lot of things but gaming isn’t one of them.

    Might change with Google Stadium though.

    I can recommend this - I had one when I was 12. I don’t believe technology has moved on much in the 34 years since.
