So my parents have never had a home PC, but my mum uses one on a daily basis at work and also goes to the library every day to use their shared machines. I want to get them a computer for Christmas this year so they have something to use in the house but not sure what I should go with.
So the choices are an iPad which is simple and easy to use, there's no real way they can break it through downloading crap and it has everything they need. A laptop would have more of a similarity to what they are used to but would be easier to get infested with crap until I come round and sort it out. An android tablet would be much cheaper but again I'd be worried about how user friendly it would be for them.
Realistically it would just be for web browsing and probably some email and skype stuff so I'm not sure I can justify the price of an iPad, although it will probably last without upgrade for a good few years so maybe it's worth it? What do you think H+A, suggestions for specific laptops or tablets would also be appreciated!
