Speak Your Mind: My Mom and Dad Need Your Help
…but they don’t know it. You see, my parents need a new computer. They need one bad. Seriously, it’s getting ridiculous.
Really, this computer would be for my mom, because my dad isn’t what you’d call a techie. From our conversations, my mom is torn between getting a laptop and an iPad. Growing up, we’d always had a PC, so an iPad would be her foray into the wonderful world of Mac.
My darling mum mostly uses her computer to get on Facebook or read the newspaper or send emails. But she also has a tendency to take a lot of photos, so she wants a device with and SD slot. But an iPad is cheaper, which is always a big plus.
My advice (“You should get ME and iPad!”) has been characteristically unhelpful. Plus, I have no idea what I’m talking about. So…
Are there any computer buffs out there? What would you recommend to a couple of middle-aged parents? Are there any better tablets out there?
