I have an 80 year old mother that just had open heart surgery.........I think she would enjoy playing certain games but I also think she would like Facebook. Her children and grandchildren are on Facebook. She likes seeing other peoples business. Lol!!!! She will not do emails, she might shop on web. If I want an inexpensive device that can do games, Facebook, and maybe search web am I needing an iPad mini or would a kindle fire handle this???
