Features Wipeable Keyboard, Software and Entertainment Suite Designed for Children 5-10
Toshiba today announced the Satellite® L635 Kids' PC, Toshiba's first kid-centric laptop design, available exclusively at Best Buy. Designed in collaboration with Best Buy, the Satellite L635 Kids' PC is a full-size laptop made for children aged five to 10 that provides a suite of entertainment and education software and allows parents to help ensure their children are staying safe on the Web.
The Satellite L635 Kids' PC features a 13.3-inch diagonal HD display, a built-in DVD drive and Webcam with software designed specially with a younger user in mind.
Toshiba, Best Buy Collaboration
The Satellite L635 Kids' PC is the latest consumer-driven innovation to come out of the You Spoke, We Listened program, a collaboration between Toshiba and Best Buy that has yielded products such as the Toshiba Satellite E205. With the Satellite L635 Kids' PC, the two companies combined their consumer feedback and technical expertise to produce a laptop from the ground up for children that is like no other.
Designed with kids in mind, the laptop boasts a unique wipeable keyboard, allowing for easy cleaning of smudges left by messy hands and a no-gloss Dura-cross textured finish that helps resist fingerprints.
The accompanying software gives parents the opportunity to help protect their kids from dangers online while providing a fun and safe universe for children to explore the Internet. The laptop comes pre-loaded with KidZui, an Internet browser made for children, as well as Net Nanny, which allows parents to set boundaries on how the laptop is used. The combination of these two programs allows the security of the laptop to adapt as children mature.
For all its kid-ready features, the laptop stands out for still having the power of a standard PC, making it a product to be used and enjoyed by the entire family. Pre-installed entertainment includes two Disney movies and the family-friendly LEGO Batman game.
The Satellite L635 Kids' Laptop PC is available exclusively at Best Buy beginning Sept. 26, 2010.
