So my grandmother is needing a new computer. She just bought a compaq with vista, and it was horrible. It made her cry and crashed a day after opening it. We took it back. She is somewhat computer savvy, not the best not the worst. I guess the level a 7 year old child would be. ( well now-a-days even 7 year olds amaze me) anyway... I told her to look into a mac mini. She can use her previous monitor and I have a mouse and keyboard for her. My main question is, do you think it would be easier for her to use OS vs Windows? Should I just let her stick to windows? I just feel that OS is so simple. It takes the 'thinking' out of 'thinking'. She will only be surfing the web, email, and writing the occasional poem! Thats a lot for her. With me, a phone call away, it would be like her personal genius bar! What do you guys think? Macmini and OS... or new Windows desktop? thanks guys.
