Easy-access laptop for elderly relative

  spuds 10:49 14 Sep 2014

Many laptops would cover the needs, it would most likely be the case that a reliable internet connection is one of the important factors, whether wireless or cable.

Windows 8, I regard as a little daunting, and would suggest Windows 7 instead, which some retailers are still offering (Argos for one).

Perhaps a contact with one of the charities like 'Aged', or even your local council might help. My local county council use to, and may still do, offer help for the elderly or disabled with computer or IT problems, by sending staff on home visits in certain cases.
