Chromebooks for Kids
There has been a lot of debate recently about children using technology. While some think that kids should only have very limited exposure to computers, others allow their children to play with tablets, phones, and laptops all they want. Over the past few years, schools have been adopting Chromebooks as an inexpensive way to provide students with computers in a more controlled fashion. Schools can easily limit the functionality available on Chromebooks and keep things running smoothly for students and teachers at a much-reduced cost compared to traditional legacy computing environments. With the events of 2020, Chromebooks and remote learning has become mainstream.
Chromebooks can be a great fit for your kids at home and not just at school. Their low cost is attractive to many parents. Other features like automatic seamless system updates and the built-in virus protection also make a Chromebook a good choice for kids. With the introduction of the Google Play Store (Android apps) for Chromebooks, children can have access to even more software than ever before and be able to use all of their favorite tablet and smartphone apps.
Over the last few years, one of the top kid-friendly Chromebooks on the market is the ASUS Chromebook C202SA. For 2020, ASUS imporved on this model with the new ASUS Chromebook C202XA. This ASUS Chromebook features a very rugged design which includes an 180-degree hinge. This is especially important when small children will be using or near the computer as they tend to pull or push notebook screens and break them. The C202XA’s hinge lets the screen go safely all the way down to the table without breaking. This model also features reinforced rubber edges and should stand up to almost anything kids can throw at it.
