The mouse is difficult to use, and personally I think having the upper- and lowercase letters on the same button is distracting. The screen is really small, and the top/cover snaps to a 90-degree angle and about a 45-degree angle, so he could never quite see it properly when sitting on his lap. Once, he lay on the floor to see the screen. That alone was enough for me to reject it--I hope to find one with an infinitely adjustable cover, like my own laptop.
He has a similar toy without a screen, the Alphabet Apple by V-Tech, which amuses him for a good 30 minutes in the car. If the "Laughtop" had cost $11.99, I'd be more forgiving, but for the price I expect more.
With the two screen positions she can see fine and I can see the screen even when she's in the floor a distance away. It's not too small and it is intense enough to be acceptable for play. She really enjoys the "raining letters" game where they fall from the clouds and you must push the corresponding letter on the keyboard so the onscreen one drops in the water bucket. All the games have several levels of difficulty.
The feature she enjoys the best is the composer setting where you can play it like a keyboard and there are visuals to match onscreen.
She does not become bored easily with this toy and it was worth the price and is durable and portable.
I can't say as I think she will really get long use out of it, however. It is a pretty limited toy---you push the letters and it says them, and their sound, and shows a picture, another mode plays a short bit of music for different keys, and lets the top keys be like a piano, another mode plays games which are beyond her at this point, but I really doubt many self-respecting 7 year olds would have any interest in---I think they are reaching a bit to say the top age for this toy is 7! However, she has played with it a fair amount so far.
It's pretty durable, it has to be to last around here. She has dropped it quite a few times and it hasn't skipped a beat.
One annoying thing---when you are playing with it and stop, the voice asking you to keep playing has the most sarcastic tone! I would like toys to model NICE manners!
Overall, fun as a computer substitute.
My son is still a little young for educational content on this laptop, but he loves to push the buttons and listen to the sounds. I highly recommend this toy for any 2-3 y.o. interested in computers or adult tech "toys"!
Update 1/2011: This sturdy little laptop is still going strong 3 years later! now our youngest enjoys playing with it (2 yo) whenever I am on my laptop! Our 4 yo also still plays with it! This toy was well worth the small price we paid!
