My mom currently has a two year old Dell desktop. It's already gotten to the point where it takes forever to start, freezes up and is generally unresponsive. She uses it for e-mail, browsing, shopping and watching the occasional movie/video. She was ready to buy a new Dell, and go down the same "Buy PC, wait 2 years, buy new PC, rinse, repeat..." but I thought maybe an iPad would suit her? She's in her 50's and I thought the simplicity and elegance of the iPad would be a great fit. She has never had an Apple product but I think it would be a simple OS for her to learn. She does type out some e-mails, we could get her a hardware keyboard if that was a problem. Think it is a good option or is using an iPad as your only "PC" not sufficient?
