What is the right age of a child to be allowed to own his own laptop?

When I was in college. I do nothing but play games and I guess even young adults right now like to play video games and computer games. But I don't like that traits and I don't want if I have children to be expose to computer games at the younger age. I want them to play traditional out door games and not computer games. And this is the problem. Since in school children do need to have computers and because of low space I prefer to use laptop and it can't be avoided that in schools his classmates will going to talk about computer games and he going to feel outcast if he is also not expose in computer games. That's why I'm wondering. What is the right age for a child to have his own laptop. Just to balance the two.

I was a very lazy guy in my college days too. I liked to play a lot on my desktop. I think it is not fixed as to how much age a boy is allowed to play computer games. Playing outside with friends is really fun and more enjoyable. I also prefer laptops nowadays but not so in my childhood. So lately I am using my laptop more.

If you want to limit your child's pc time, there's no need to buy them their own pc. Let them buy one when they are old enough to. If you don't mind your child whimsically using the computer, than you can give them one as soon as they are old enough to use one.
