|I want to give some young kids a small cheap computer that "switches on to basic" or some other programming language?|
Like in ye olde computer days when you brought home your Commodore 64 and turned it on you were in basic.
I'm guessing everyone will want to say "Raspberry Pi" of some form, but does that meet my requirement? Plug it into TV, turn it on and you're in basic and can start programming. Ideally with some sort of book or resource for learning how to make the computer do things on the home TV screen.
