One of my recommendations for a child's first computer is something small, light, and has wired capability. Limiting children to the risks of electromagnetic radiation (EMR) is essential. Cost is important too (you won't feel as bad if something in the $200 range breaks). Here is my child working on a Samsung Chromebook. We use an adapter to connect it to the internet. Her internet time is very limited, supervised, and mostly preset with educational apps / websites.
