EeePC from ASUS.
That’s “Easy to learn, Easy to work, Easy to play” in case you were wondering. And if you’d prefer a quiet, cute, energy-efficient desktop PC, check out the newly released gPC from Everex, running the new gOS (I’m not making this up). Did I mention they’re both inexpensive? (Note: I am in no way promoting either of these products. If they crash, burn, and destroy your data, please complain to the companies that sell them. I am, however, promoting free and open source software. Discover it, Use it, Share it. [umm, DUS!]) Honestly, they both look like something ideal for children. They’re not going to cost you a lot, but you can still provide your kids with something fun and easy to use. I’m considering getting the EeePC for my wife who has been anxiously desiring to get a new desktop PC. I will NOT, however, buy it from Wal-mart, no matter how green it is.
