None

I'll check the dell model, the second model which is 2 in 1 might not be suitable for my use case as the hinges might get damage easily due to rough usage by kids. Also both kind of looks a bit overkill for my use case, but I am assuming it future proof it because of that?
Maybe get this with 2 years of premium warranty for international warranty support:
New Inspiron 14 Laptop

Or maybe this:
https://www.amazon.com/Lenovo-Processor-Graphics-Included-81X20005US/dp/B086226DDB/

Get at least i5 10th gen or Ryzen 5 4500U based laptops with 8GB RAM & 256GB SSD.

Honestly, R3/i3 CPU, 8GB RAM & SSD laptop is enough for normal usage. Yes, it will help with futureproofing to have a quad core CPU or better. For light gaming, prefer Ryzen powered ones.

Prefer this for light gaming:
https://www.amazon.com/HP-Portable-Micro-Edge-Anti-Glare-14-fq1021nr/dp/B091D9652Z/

Dell one is good if you want warranty, iGPU is weaker.
