Disney ASUS netbooks for the younger crowd
For those that are considering giving their young ones a laptop, Disney has gone in with ASUS to create two different Disney themed laptops. There is basically a male and female version, the Princess Pink you see here and Magic Blue for the boys. These kid friendly laptops allow for the kids to pick and choose a theme such as Hannah Montana or WALL-E. Don’t worry, there are features that make this laptop a little more likely to survive being abused by the kids ranging in ages from 6-12. It has a spill-proof keyboard and ShockShield protection that will save data in a fall.
These ASUS MK90 and MK90H have a total of 40 parental control options, so you can attempt to protect your kids from their never ending curiosity. These also come with a software bundle that will include Disney brand media-management software (Disney Mix), photo software (Disney Pix) and then other things such as games and widgets. As far as the machine itself goes, it runs on an Intel Atom N270 processor, with 1GB of DDR2 Ram. It also includes a VGA port, 3 USB ports and an 8.9-inch LED backlit screen with a 1,024 by 600 resolution. As well as a multi-card reader, a 0.3 MP webcam and a battery that is said to run for up to 5 hours. You can pick them up in late July for $349.99.
