Here is a guide to tablets under £300 some may be £200 by now but I'm not sure that I would recommend one for a 9 year old, I would have thought that they may be a bit fragile. Netbooks are heavier and more sturdy but they nearly all come with limited RAM and Windows 7 Starter Edition - not the friendliest of interfaces. But here is a selection from Revoo
