Q: I have a Dell Inspiron laptop that no longer works. However, rather than throwing it away, I'm curious whether any of your ingenious readers have repurposed such an item into a play latop for their kids? I've seen advertisements for the VTech toy laptop, and was wondering if anyone has made their own.

Editor: Ruthie, if your laptop has any functionality left you might consider installing a kid-friendly operating system. Readers - what other ideas do you have?
