    This is a nice little starter computer for a child. My 9 y/o grandson assembled this w/o help by looking at the blueprint supplied. My son will be able to teach him Linux commands and other early computer skills. Cons: The screen could be larger--it's kind of small. The mouse supplied is flimsy, so we have an extra full-sized mouse around the house that we would rather use. Our set came WITHOUT a battery charging cord---again, we had a spare one around the house that we supplied. Also, we supplied a keyboard for my grandson to use with this computer since NO keyboard is supplied. Otherwise, our 9 y/o grandson is looking forward to using this and is already excited about the Mine Craft building program.

Today's kids grow up with "black box" phones, computers and gadgets that come in beautiful packages, but leave no room for tinkering or understanding how they work. We believe it is critical to understand fundamentally how technology works in order to make sense of our environment and invent the future. We are creating the tools that will inspire and empower the creators of tomorrow to build, explore and tinker with technology, to help them invent the tools of tomorrow.
