OK, here is the problem: My parents, both in their mid-sixties, have a Compaq desktop at home. They know nothing about computers. It is so full of spyware/virii/adware that it barely runs, even though it is a Pentium 4 @ 2.7Ghz. Now, I know a fair amount about computers, but mostly about Macs since it is all I've used since win 98 days (in same year). They have XP Home. Although I might be able to fix their computer with great time and effort, I cannot trust them to not keep doing the same things they have been doing to get to this point: not updating virus software, clicking on good-sounding pop-ups and so forth. So I decided that I would just replace their computer with a Mac come xmas. Since they mainly do only word-processing and internet, I thought that a B&W or an early G4 would do the trick, since I have a limited budget and they have limited needs. I also bought them a nice flat-screen monitor last xmas which I would hate to waste. There are a couple of things, however. They have always had AOL as their ISP and are stuck with dial-up since they live in the country. I really want to wean them off AOL and get a high-speed dial-up (oxymoron, I know) ISP instead. I am not sure who to choose, as I have had cable for the past few years. They are pretty used to the interface, so any suggestions to let them down gently? So I ask, what are your recommendations for Hardware to replace their ailing Compaq, or should I try to help them out sticking with their current setup. If the latter, what is the best course of action to keep them out of trouble? Also, what is a good hi-speed dial-up ISP? Any other pertinent comments/suggestions would be appreciated. Thanks.
