This is where Consoles win. The controller takes all the damage.
Durable laptops cost even more. I suggest a console for games and a desktop since the keyboard and mice take the damage and those parts are cheap. Laptops would be costly and too fragile for kids this age.
We want to get our two sons (age 8 and 10) laptop computers. They want them for Minecraft, Roblox, some Steam games such as Raft (if possible), watching Youtube videos, creating Youtube videos of their game play, and basic photo and video editing. We don't want to spend a fortune since the kids are pretty young, and we need to buy two. Are there any laptops that anyone can recommend that work well, are durable, will cover the stuff that they want to do, and not break the bank? Thanks for any suggestions!!
