Can’t get the kids off your laptop? Get them their own. PeeWee’s Pivot 2.0 Tablet Laptop is just that—a kids laptop with a swivel top that transforms into a tablet. The Pivot is no kids’ toy, however. It runs on an Intel Atom processor and Windows 7 Starter, and its 1GB of memory and 160GB hard drive are more than enough to run the 15 included educational games, plus whatever your child wants to add.
The Pivot’s plastic case is rugged, so drops and spills are no worry even spills on the keyboard. The removable carrying handle lets your child take the device around your home, to school, or to a friend’s house with ease. And, at 3.7 pounds, your little ones won’t have a problem carrying it. Two security suites offer needed protection from viruses and spyware since the Pivot can go online.
When the Pivot is in tablet mode, it has a touchscreen, but the included digital stylus can be used for input, too. When the Pivot is in laptop mode, the keyboard is used for text entry.
One version of the Pivot has HD, which puts its price to $649. Without HD it costs $599. You can buy it on PeeWee’s Website.
