Personally, I love my toys so I can't wait for an excuse to buy him his first laptop (maybe a Microsoft Surface) or better yet his first gaming laptop!
Fight that temptation. You will rue the day when you have to stop his addiction to online games with his friends.
For kids until Secondary 4, I think it is better to give them a desktop machine which they can only access in the living room, out in the open. It is much easier to oversee what they are using the machine for that way.
Good point. Probably a light use laptop like the Surface and a gaming desktop then.
I can put the desktop in the study where I spend most of my time so I can monitor him (although it will be a pain trying to fit 2 gaming desktops in the room ).
