Greetings all, My parents computer - finally - broke down today. I was talking to my mom whom is in love with the design of the new iMac. They have both been using Windows for the past couple years, but when I got them an iPad last year, the computer had little to no use at all. Still they want to replace it and it has to be an All-In-One computer. A little more information about my parents; they are both clueless when it comes down to technology. My father manages to make some word documents, check his e-mails, take pictures and make sales on eBay, but has trouble understanding concepts like Google or App Stores. My mom only browses the web. She wants to pick up photo editing but handling a camera is a little too much for her. She also has bad eyesight and does not like touch. (She prefers to browse the web on the desktop rather than the iPad because it has a mouse.) Both do not understand the concept of a file system. This all taken in consideration I was looking at my options. I could either buy a Windows 8 All-In-One, which will have a big learning curve for both of them or purchase an iMac. (Price isn't really an object here.) I guess my dad will recognize most icons in OS X and have a slight advantage there. Though the high resolution of the iMac might be a problem for my mom whom says the retina display of the iPad is much easier to read than the desktop. (HiDPI mode could be a solution here, but does it work well?) I like the idea of iCloud syncing with the iPad as well as it would make some things a lot easier. All by all I need some opinions. Should I buy a Windows 8 AIO, an iMac or refuse and leave them with the iPad? I'll have to stand in as tech support either way and I have some experience with all OS. (Am a rMBP / iPhone 5 user myself.) Thanks already for your input.
