PeeWee Tablet Laptop Is Resistant To Drops, Spills, Screaming Children

peewee

By Evan Ackerman

The PeeWee Pivot Tablet Laptop, as you may have guessed from the name, is designed for kids ages 3-10. As such, it comes with “age appropriate software,” a Disney Theme for Windows XP, and a security suite designed to keep your preschoolers from downloading hardcore pornography.

Once you get past the kiddie stuff, though, this is actually a pretty decent machine. It’s essentially a netbook, with all of the features you’ve come to know and love and be bored by, including an Atom processor, Windows XP, 1-2 gigs of RAM, a 60 gig HD, USB, card reader, WiFi, 6 cell battery for 5+ hours of on-time, blah blah blah. But it’s also a convertible touchscreen tablet that comes with a stylus. And a webcam that rotates 180 degrees. And a spill-resistant keyboard. And drop-resistant shell. You know, stuff that’s nice to have in a computer that you carry around a lot.

You’ll pay more for all of these features, of course: the PeeWee PC costs $600. That’s a premium of about $150 or so from a similarly outfitted MSI Wind (the netbook standard, IMO). But that’s not really that much for the additional durability and touchscreen… As long as you can handle using a laptop that probably says “PeeWee” on it in a few places.

    Sure the software kept my little 4 year old from downloading hardcore porn but when he found out there was a lucrative black market at the local sandbox he was freely able to order shipments of Viagra, Botox and hair plugs for trade.
