My dad has his own business, where he has a dell desktop at home, and another PC at his main job site, but he is fairly mobile. He told me to find him a laptop. The only thing he really uses a computer for is Excel spreadsheets, Word, E-mail, and the occasional internet browsing, he's not exactly what you would call a computer nerd.. get's in, and get's out. Tired of sharing computers and them not working right. Would like his own computer to keep in his briefcase, so he could always have it. More conveinient I guess, now he could work anywhere (such as couch) and not be tied down to the den, when he is tired at night. To my suprise he asked "so should I buy an apple" After a little more talking, he said "So I think after I get paid for .... You and I will go to the Apple Store". So... I need some advice. And my dad doesn't wait long when it comes to purchases after he makes his mind up! What to buy? He asked how much my iBook G4 was, and it ended up costing about $800 because I bought during Cram and Jam in Sept. He could I guess go with a iBook, but it would be wierd having 2 in the house... IDK. Would about a IBM or HP? Don't laugh, but just an option. He's never owned a Mac before. But, maybe he'll be impressed by the OS. I don't want him to get an iBook and think it's cheap or something feeling... He does tend to like things nice, but, he doesn't want to spend $1500... An exciting but difficult decision to make.
