Awwww, a ickle computer just for the ickle kiddies. The really rich ones.
Little Tikes, those makers of fine kids’ toys seem to have noted the ‘style over substance’ criticism that is normally aimed at Apple and then gone hog wild with it with the launch of their Young Explorer workstation.
It’s a PC for the little ‘uns, encased in some tough, brightly-coloured plastic and seems perfect for teaching the pre-school mob how computers work and getting them used to it all for when they grow up and get a job in a call centre.
As for the specs – well, it runs Windows and there’s a 19 inch LCD monitor, a 160GB hard drive and 1GB of memory. About the same as the average laptop then. Which all makes sense when you see the price tag of… TWO AND A HALF THOUSAND DOLLARS!
Yes, that’s right. $2,599.99 to be exact. About £1,700. Bitterwallet says… think twice before making this purchase.
