Zanui are selling the VTech Chuggington Laptop for $29.95 reduced from $89.95, and with an added $9 for shipping. I have looked around online to see where else I can find this particular children's laptop, but most places that did have it,and had it for upwards of $90, no longer have it in stock.
As far as faux-computers for children go, this one actually looks pretty cool. It has enough to it to keep a child's attention for some time, I'd venture. Aimed at the 3 - 6 year old market, the Chuggington Laptop features real character voices from the series, and the Wilson-shaped keyboard is equipped with numbers one to ten and has 40 activities and game modes and animations. According to the blurb it teaches school curriculum-based skills in the activities. It also has a QWERTY keyboard.
For ease of use, the Chuggington Laptop has a built in carry handle.
Just one word of caution: don't get this if you're in a hurry as it can take up to 21 days to be delivered.
