What's the best computer for a 10 year old student?

Episode 964 (1:39:17)

Rob from Gainsville, FL
Apple Macbook Air

Rob's daughter needs a computer and he'd like to get her a Mac. Leo says that the MacBook Air is thin, light and very powerful. Leo recommends setting the internet up with OpenDNS to protect her from going places she shouldn't go. Checking the Apple Refub Store could save him money on the computer too. The chatroom says that Best Buy open box purchases are a good way to go as well.

Leo thinks a computer is a great thing to get for a kid because it's open-ended. She could do YouTube videos, photography, programming, graphic design and more.

Another option is the Samsung ChromeBook. It's certainly going to be cheaper, but it's a browser only.
