Nobody likes sparring with kids over who gets to use the tablet. And if you lose the battle, you better pray that the tyke doesn’t wander into Facebook or your work email. Buying a dedicated child-friendly tablet avoids all that headache and Amazon's new Fire 7 Kids Edition—out October 15—is on preorder sale today for $70, down from a list price of $100.

This tablet is built to be kid-friendly, but don't be fooled. It's still a fully functional Fire 7 tablet, featuring 16GB of storage with the option to add more, as well as a seven-inch display. An included one-year subscription to FreeTime Unlimited will keep your kids busy with child-friendly games, books, apps, and videos. If that's not enough, you can also give your kids parentally-controlled access to other apps like Netflix. Parents can also manage and monitor things like usage time and appropriate content via an intuitive parental control interface.

This tablet's earlier editions have 4.2 stars out of 5 over nearly 10,000 user reviews. I have one in my household, and we love it especially for its durability (boosted by that included case). Ours has survived more than a few tumbles down the stairs with no issue at all.

Dynabook Portégé X30L-G

Ultimately this laptop has achieved everything I would hope for in a laptop for work, while fitting that into a form factor and weight that is remarkable.

This smart laptop was enjoyable to use and great to work on – creating content was super simple.

MSI GT76

It really doesn’t get more “gaming laptop” than this.

Jack Jeffries

MSI GS75

As the Maserati or BMW of laptops, it would fit perfectly in the hands of a professional needing firepower under the hood, sophistication and class on the surface, and gaming prowess (sports mode if you will) in between.

MSI PS63

The MSI PS63 is an amazing laptop and I would definitely consider buying one in the future.

This small mobile printer is exactly what I need for invoicing and other jobs such as sending fellow tradesman details or step-by-step instructions that I can easily print off from my phone or the Web.
