Hi Guys my parents are in thier 60's and have decided to bite the bullet to buy a laptop.
Im wondering if you could give me a hand in choosing as it is a minefield out there.
They want it for the net and the odd Letter but i will also be using it for movies and music i guess.
I have looked at notebooks but the screens aint the best size.
Please could you help.

May I suggest a Mac.

I know that this is really a Windows Forum, but to the uninitiated, the Mac is so much simpler to use.

That it may be more expensive is a element to be considered, but if you start to factor Software Costs into the equation, the differential reduces considerably. The software a mac comes with is first class and covers almost all the bases that a Newbie might need.

It has everything they'll need and more.
