16. Cheap laptop still going down

If you are in the market for a very low cost but fully functional computer, the Asus EEE PC 900 running with Linux systems are excellent. These ones with 8.9in screens are very good for kids (keyboards are a bit small for adult hands) and while it may be argued that there is not too much specialist software available, they will run anything that runs in the browser. Therefore any online software or web searching is as good on these machines as the more expensive ones. The link shows a US site offering a machine for under $150, which is around £90 or €105. There are many more like this.
