Your friendly neighborhood bug scientist is here!
As the resident "tech guy" in my family, I've been conscripted to help my mother pick out a new laptop.
However, I think she should get a tablet, for a lot of reasons- they are lighter (she has arthritis), more portable, and generally more "user friendly" than a computer.
I'm thinking about recommending her this one
, but what do you guys think?
She's looking to use it mostly for web browsing and light document editing/learning how to use office products
I figure a Windows 8 tablet with Office 365 would be a better buy than a laptop of similar price...but I'm not sure!
Are ~$500 tablets worth doing office work on? Should I instead recommend her some cheap laptop?
