Re: Need basic Windows Laptop Ideas

If I were in your shoes, I would seriously consider a Chromebook.

Hi, all.

My sister and I want to get our mom a very basic Windows laptop for Christmas. She's used Windows, but back in the XP days, and she hasn't used a PC since then.

I'm looking for machines that are relatively inexpensive, like under $300 and are reputable brands with minimum specs-- She'll just do basic web surfing, on line shopping, Netflix, and maybe some YouTube and video calling.

I'm looking for something with a full size keyboard, otherwise, we can provide a wireless Logitech one.

I really don't want to pay more for one with an SSD because she's not going to be a power user by any means.

Also, mom is sighted, but would probably benefit from the magnification capability in Windows.  She doesn't need any other specialized software.

TIA for the thoughts.
