We recommend you consider these aspects before purchasing a device for your son or daughter: - Lighter weight the better, battery life should last eight hours or more, screen resolution of 1366 x 768 or better, screen size at least 10 inches, keyboard an advantage, a protective sleeve, cover or bag is worthwhile.  Apple iPads have limitations within our school system we do not recommend these for students and staff.
