On this week’s episode of Out Tech Your Kids, we’re answering the question we’re getting from SO many parents right now: How do I pick the right laptop for my child this year?

Chromebook? MacBook? Something else? What kind of functionality do the kids really need for at-home learning? What kind of RAM? Should I consider battery power? Can they still play Minecraft on it? What about parental controls? And of course… how much is it all going to cost me? 

We know…there are a lot of questions. And we can help!

Listen right now (it’s only 15 minutes!), and then be sure you’ve subscribed to our podcast on Apple podcasts, so you never miss an episode.
