Laptop for kids- advise needed

Looking for the BBS to help me out here. Kids need a laptop as they now need to do homework via the internet. I use phones and tablets for everything so haven't needed one before.

Can you get one for around £200 that's not completely crap? It's only really for homework but would be nice if you could browse the internet quickly etc. I know I'm not going to get anything great but any links would be much appreciated.

I have an 11”6 inch Asus vivobook, it’s no MacBook Pro but it’s reliable, sleek and cheap, around the 200 quid mark. Suppose the size is the main drawback but it should do the job if your kids just need to do homework and surf the interwebz. To view the link you have to Register or Login

That looks really good . Very good reviews as well. It looks like it will do everything I need it to.

This one says it's installed with office 365 for £189.00. Is that similar?

Only difference is that the Curry’s one comes with a years anti virus software, which costs like 70-80 quid if you buy it separately. Knowing what adolescents can get up to on the internet it might be worth the extra money but up to you.

True! They are only 7 so should (hopefully) be okay.
