My grandparents might get a new computer soon, and instead of them getting a Windows 8 machine (which could be a disaster even with classic shell), I'm considering recommending them an iMac or Mac Mini. I love them, but they're very computer illiterate. Not trying to make fun of them, but to give you an idea of how they are, my grandma doesn't know what an address bar is and when she minimizes a window, she doesn't know where it goes. My grandpa is a little better but not much. But really all they need is something to go to a bookmarked shopping website and check their Verizon email on. The one thing I would probably need to install is an app like RedQuits to automatically quit applications when they click the red x or when the last window closes. Otherwise, they will likely have everything open and suck up RAM. I guess my big question is for anyone who has been in the same situation. Should I do it? I might have to retrain them a little, but I'm wondering how quickly they might pick it up since Mac OS X is arguably easier to use. They've been using Windows since Windows 95.
