Kano PC – 11.6″ Touchscreen Laptop & TabletKano PC - 11.6" Touchscreen Laptop & Tabletcheck price

Does your kid dream of making their very own computer? The Kano PC kit is one of the most popular STEM kits for kids enabling them to build a Surface-like Windows-based PC/tablet convertible with an 11.6-inch, 720P touchscreen display. The best part? Kano designed it so that anyone can build it by following the instructions, without any technical expertise. It offers simple LEGO-like assembly with pre-installed educational software and Windows 10 Home. It’s worth noting that it’s not a full PC build — the processor and RAM are pre-installed. Still, it’s well-designed and delivers an enjoyable building experience. We highly recommend Kano’s official mouse, as the trackpad is a bit small and finicky. Also, it doesn’t include a webcam — it’s sold separately. Another shortcoming is that the viewing angle can’t be changed like the Surface. Once you build your computer, you can surf the web, explore YouTube, create art, and even learn the basics of programming. Its battery life comes in at up to 9 hours. While it’s not perfect — designed for learning and creation, the Kano PC is perfect for inspiring the creators of tomorrow.
