Toshiba: Toshiba shows off the L635 Kids' PC

Toshiba’s latest offering is targeted at children. However it doesn’t compromise on performance

Young geeks have something to rejoice this season as a number of famous notebook brands are targeting them, possibly because the education sector has become very lucrative after advent of the concept of digital learning. With the Satellite L635 Kids' PC by Toshiba unveiled today, the company has thrown its hat into the arena of kid friendly computers, aimed to target children aged between 5 to 10 years.

The Toshiba Satellite L635 Kids' PC has been tailor made to be sturdy enough to withstand minor physical abuses by kids which includes a cross patterned finish. It is also very thoughtful of the company to provide a keyboard that is wipeable, to allow for mopping it up in case of food and other spills most likely when used by little techies. Their entertainment dimension has also been catered to with Disney Movies and LEGO Batman.

The weight and portability has also been kept in mind and with a 13.3-inch wide screen, the petite system is aptly sized. The system is fast enough to run conventional movies and play games. If you’re a worried parent wondering how to monitor the content your child views, fret not - the Satellite L635 Kids' PC has inbuilt software called “Net Nanny” that comes pre-installed to monitor and filter out offensive content. The browser is a simplified version of KidZui for the convenience of younger users.

September 26th is said to be the date for the market launch of the Satellite L635 Kids' PC, Best Buy being the only store you can purchase from. The price of the PC is still unknown.
