    Best Durable/Rugged Laptop for primary school

    Hello Fellow Edugeekers

    What sturdy makes/models laptops would you recommend for primary children, in an ICT suite, please?

    I'm looking for something reasonably tough enough, can withstand knocks, pokes and some drops, but they won't be taken out into the yard/in rain or carried great distances. Ideally it would also have a decent battery life (at least 3 hours).

    Does anyone recommend getting the extra warranties?

    Any advice would be greatly appreciated!

    Um, desktop PCs, save yourself a 10k or so and just go for the more durable option to start with. Toughbook's are really good but not cheap, most of the other options are no where near as robust and repairs are a nightmare in comparison to just getting so PCs especially if they are being used in an IT Suite anyway.
