Laptop named most wanted Christmas present for kids

According to the Ebates 2012 Holiday Wish List Survey – which polled more than 1,000 eight to 18-year-olds regarding the most sought after presents – this form of computer has knocked iPhones off the top spot.
It was shown that 17 per cent of the 1,121 youngsters questioned revealed their dream gift this festive period is a laptop, while 15 per cent plumped for iPhones, 11 per cent selected clothes and nine per cent revealed they would like to receive a tablet on December 25th.
Android phones accounted for six per cent of the vote, followed by seven-inch tablets on five per cent and e-readers with four per cent.
Kevin Johnson, chief executive officer of Ebates – which deals in online cashback shopping – said the survey was conducted among children because yuletide is a time to focus on young people.
Mr Johnson stated: “It’s interesting to see how the older kids want a laptop while the younger kids generally would prefer a smartphone or tablet.”
