Disney’s Appmates iPad peripherals are a testament to the fast-evolving technology habits of kids. Needless to say, they are an innovative way of engaging with kids constantly riveted to their various gadgets and gizmos. Toshiba, on the other hand, is targeting a completely different subset of children with its Satellite L735D Kids’ PC - those whose don’t really appreciate the tablet form factor. The Satellite L735D Kids’ PC is essentially the Satellite L635 with an updated processor and some other minor changes.
Instead of the L635’s Celeron P4600 processor and 250GB HDD, the new L735D features a 1.3GHz AMD E300 APU and 320GB HDD. Apart from that, the two notebooks are identical, with the L735D retaining, among other things, the 13.3-inch widescreen TrueBrite display and wipeable keyboard found in the original. In addition to the above, the kid-friendly laptop has a couple of USB 2.0 ports, a webcam and a battery capable of lasting five and a half hours on a single charge.
To ensure that kids get to appreciate the E300’s integrated Radeon HD 6310 graphics core, Toshiba is going to ship the L735D with LEGO Harry Potter: The Video Game pre-installed. Besides the game, the laptop will also come with the KidZui browser for kids.
The new laptop has a starting price of $497.99 and will be available beginning October 2.
