Thank you very much for including childless thirty-something me in your marketing survey, but I'm far more concerned about what features the perfect kid-friendly velociraptor should have.

Sometimes I suspect you never really grew out of your dinosaur phase, did you?

I always preferred the armed and armoured herbivores, myself - T-Rex never looked better IMO than when he had a Triceratops's primary horns rammed into his gut. YMMV and all that. :p

Seeing as we're talking dinosaurs and kids' laptops, I'd go for a laptop that runs as fast as Velociraptor with the armoured toughness of Ankylosaurus. And hopefully a lot more functioning memory than both.

Grow out of your dinosaur phase? What a strange concept...

I graduated to airplanes not long after starting school. Airplanes were so much more exciting than dinosaurs, given that they actually existed as more than just museum exhibits. (Australia had Mirage fighters back then - they were cool.) The LOLirony is that most of the airplanes I had a thing for as a kid are now no more than museum exhibits...

Admittedly, at some stage in the next four or five years I may have to re-activate my dinosaur phase for a while. At least until I can get my son addicted to airplanes.

Never got into airplanes; but my fascination with all lifeforms, extant and otherwise still remains.

I assume you've seen Ursula Vernon (http://ursulav.deviantart.com/)'s drawings and such? She does some amazingly cute extinct (and extant) critters; has a real talent for the anatomy, amongst other things.

Isn't it? ;-)

Hmm, I'm actually more into extinct mammals* than dinosaurs, but maybe a bit.

That said, I think I was introduced to One Velociraptor Per Child by [livejournal.com profile] carlanime, FWIW. ;-)

I always preferred the armed and armoured herbivores, myself - T-Rex never looked better IMO than when he had a Triceratops's primary horns rammed into his gut. YMMV and all that. :p

Armoured herbivores are cool as well. I mostly like Velociraptor because of OVPC and xkcd. I have a sneaking fondness for Troodon, mostly because of conspiracy and UFO literature. ;-)

Seeing as we're talking dinosaurs and kids' laptops, I'd go for a laptop that runs as fast as Velociraptor with the armoured toughness of Ankylosaurus. And hopefully a lot more functioning memory than both.

That would work, I reckon.

*I wanted a tamed dire wolf as a child, and maybe a couple of horned gophers. I'd still like a chalicothere to ride on, or at least a stuffed one, just so I could say "Look, a stuffed chalicothere." ;-)
