What kind of hardware do you need?

Hello

I want to get my friend's kids started on Scratch but they don't have their own computers. I am considering buying them tablets. Can they use Scratch on tablets? Any advice on which ones would be best? Should I get them laptops instead?

Thank you!

Scratch could only work on tablets with Adobe Flash, which are very few mobile devices and they're not making tablets with flash anymore. Go with a computer. Computers have stronger processors and can work with Scratch with less lag than with a tablet, and using a mouse for precise locations and drawing is better. A computer preferably with an Intel Core i3 processor and up (i5 an i7) should work well, and multi-cored processors work faster because they are better at running data quicker and more efficiently. But if you insist on a tablet make sure it has Flash! A tablet would most likely lag, though.
