Computers -- your feedback?

Please share your experiences with computers that you've purchased for children with writing problems. I'd like to compile some reviews of the kind of laptops that are particularly practical and useful for children.

There are increasing choices and possibilities with netbooks and lightweight laptops however parents need to chose sensibly because the small keyboards can produce drawbacks etc.

I will shortly be updating our experiences.

Computers are the main bridge to overcoming output problems as far as I can tell. The laptop has aided output considerably. There are still challenges... but it's hopeful.

Maths games...? Help

Does anyone have any good suggestions for online maths games that are either free or incredibly affordable?

If so please comment or email links to

Am particularly interested in ipod games.

Naval Battle was a game we found was good for strategy.
