My father ( 65 yrs. old) is retireing. He is wanting to buy a laptop to take with him to and from Arizona in the winters and have a computer he can take around the house to acess Internet and do E-mail etc. We were going to purchase one tonight 2-12-2008 His uses are E-mail, surfing the web and shopping on cabelas and E-bay. Maybe mild word processing or spreadsheet work. He would like to use the camera to view the grandkids. Would it be beneficial to wait for the update? or does it not really matter for him?
