    How responsible is the 13 year old? Laptops are susceptible to damage from liquids, food, and physical handling.

    You'll have to spend several hundred dollars even on a used one. If it's likely that the laptop will get damaged, don't buy one. If you buy a used laptop, it won't run any current software and replacing parts will cost more than the laptop did. This is a purchase you should really think about before you make it.
