It will depend on your budget of course but personally I would go for a 17" laptop as your main desktop replacement and two netbooks for the children. As for makes and models Toshiba is recognised as one of the most reliable manufacturers of laptops and Asus get good reviews for their netbooks. A good start is to go to and look at the customer reviews for various models. Choose the model you like at at price point you can afford and then do a Google search for the best price you can get.

If you stay anywhere near e-buyer you could try their sale.

Or just checkout all of their laptops.
Normally free delivery when you spend a certain amount.

Kids and laptops don't mix.
Make sure they use a hard surface and don't let them use them while in bed or sitting it on their knee.
They tend to overheat that way and can go on fire.
