What is the best computer for most seniors? That question comes up almost every day here in this large senior community.
Their popularity here puts iPads foremost, now priced at $339. They are easy to learn to use and there is plenty of support from many quarters.
For those who need less support the Amazon Kindle Fire 8 at $79, or $50 when on sale, is a fine choice, made even better if adapted to run Google apps.
For those who want a laptop, then the natural choice is a Chromebook at about $200 or less.
Additionally, a smartphone gives the ability to work anywhere. These are now as cheap as $50 or less with 10 - $20 monthly plans, now abundant.
All of these support voice operation---which nowadays is paramount.
All also require a compatible wireless printer, best chosen before making the purchase, though Chromebooks now are starting to enable selected wireless printers.
Windows or Mac? Some work demands a big screen.
