Laptops for cloud gaming, Minecraft and study: Introducing Geo

We've highlighted a few of the versatile Geo laptops for children and students, expertly balancing affordability with educational and gaming needs.


Laptops for cloud gaming, Minecraft and study Introducing Geo


Choosing a laptop that is fit for purpose can be a daunting task, balancing your budget with the features you absolutely need. Depending on who you are shopping for or what your own requirements are, this is not always easy.

Laptops for children: education, gaming (or both)?

When you are looking for the ideal laptop for children, you are no doubt focused on security, as well as enabling them to get their homework and study done without issues or obstacles. So, having access to educational tools and reliable, secure internet browsing is high on the list. Thanks to Microsoft (Office and Windows 10/11) and Google (G Suite), students of all ages can make use of these features in a very simplified way. Children can access free applications for educational use - even when using laptops and PCs with limited specifications.


G Suite and Microsoft Office 365


According to a 2021 report by Ofcom, children use devices for a multitude of online activity, with the most popular platform being YouTube. Whilst primarily known for entertainment videos, YouTube is also a very reliable and accessible educational platform, with vast resources for educators. According to, 500 million views are attributed to learning related content on the platform, and YouTube viewers use the platform for help with a problem they’re having with their work, studies, or hobbies.


Ofcome report - 2022 - Children and online gaming


One interesting statistic from the report is that 36% of primary school-age children did not always have access to an adequate device for online learning at home, when compared to just 17% of secondary-aged children. This data is especially interesting considering the number of children who were home schooled during the COVID lockdowns in the UK, which presented an unprecedented rise in the need for affordable laptops for children.

The Ofcom report also found that six in ten children played games online. From this number, 38% of 5-7 year olds, 69% of 8-11 year olds, and 75% of 12-17 year olds had played games online in 2021. In the same study, Ofcom also found that nine in ten parents have at least one rule governing how children are playing online games in the household. Over half of parents have rules around gaming time limits, as well as the age restriction of games, further cementing the security aspect.

So, as one of the UKs most popular pastimes, it's quite normal when a child gets their hands on a new laptop and their thoughts almost immediately turn to gaming capabilities. This is where it usually gets a little more complicated for the buyer. Whilst access to educational tools and applications is almost guaranteed, gaming is a secondary factor for most parents, and it is difficult to know how much to spend or what features to look out for.

Geo Computers, when presented with this challenge, have released a range of devices for students and parents, with gaming laptops that are absolutely perfect for education.
