downloading programs to Acer Aspire One A110L

  Florio 13:57 24 Nov 2008

My wife and I were intending to buy a Nintendo DS for my six-year-old son for Christmas but we've been asked by his primary school to provide him with an Acer Aspire One A110L mini laptop, and so it looks like this will be his Christmas present.
Since he desperatly wants the game of Kung Fu Panda, I'm wondering how we can install this on the laptop, since there is no DVD drive.
Can anyone give me some information on installing programs, particularly games, on this laptop?

If there is no CD/DVD drive, then the only way to install programs/games, etc. is to either download them or to buy an external CD/DVD drive which will connect to the laptop via a USB connection.

.....and be very wary about downloading games such as Kung Fu Panda from the web - there are many sites where you will pick up rather more than just the game! The external drive is the best option in my opinion
