My parents have come to me for help about buying a netbook. The main reason they want it is they are fed up of going on holiday and having to pay quite a but for 5-10 mins of internet time which they use to keep in touch. However they also want it for use while travelling/in airports and for usage at home.
I can only see it getting light use, mostly internet browsing and basic office programs as well as maybe watching films on. Being able to run kids games would be handy but not really a deal breaker as that wouldn't be used much.
Due to the low usage its not something they want to spend a lot on. Initially they were looking at 2nd hand and refurbished netbooks but they have been going for Â£130ish when new ones start to come in under Â£200.
If anyone could offer some advice on that one or suggestions in general as well as what I should be looking for I would appreciate it. Never owned a laptop myself so while im certainly better than they would be at finding a decent one im far from an expert.
Thanks for any help.
