Because I have just enough computer knowledge to be dangerous, family often comes to me for help. I’ve been in the Apple universe so long, I was a bit stumped with my sister-in-law’s windows laptop question.
Her laptop is almost dead. She asked what one she should buy. I took a look at Best Buy’s offerings, which brought back the horrors of picking a windows computer. So many choices.
She is a casual user. She uses the laptop to surf the internet, check email, participate in social media, and use Word. She also designs some simple handouts, and I’m not sure what software she uses for that.
Do you have some suggestions? She doesn’t need a lot of power, obviously, but wants something decent. Can she get something that would fit that bill around $500? Money isn’t a huge issue, but I hate to have her buy something with more power than she would ever use.
I’m hoping you could help me narrow down the myriad of choices. Thanks!
