What laptop would you recommend to your computer illiterate mother? Standard laptop? Ultrabook? Surface 3? Give me your opinions /g/

The cheapest new celeron laptop you can get. Your mums just gonna use it for Facebook.
>>
>>51439315
>Celeron

I don't hate my mum enough to suggest that, besides im trying to make up recommending my dad a Satellite with an A6, and she doesnt do Facebook

>>51439274
Get her an iPad. I hate apple but for tech illiterates, it's the perfect choice. This is assuming she just wants to consume media.
>>
>>51439351
she uses an LG G2 for her phone and would prefer something with keyboard and mouse for her computer, a friend of hers recommended the surface 3 128GB but i'm wondering if there's a better choice for the same money

>>51439340
Refurb. Buissnes Latops.

>i5, i7
> 4gb+ Ram
maybe new Akku

Problem solved
>>
A chromebook. That's honestly the best solution.
>>
>>51439395
>maybe new Akku
wot

also something not bulky like a Refurb business laptop considering she's damn near 70, otherwise I would have already recommended her a refurbed Elitebook
>>
>>51439412
needs MS Office, also they live out in BFE and the last thing I heard about Chromebooks is that they need an internet connection to be worth it
>>
>>51439433

Can use the Google office suite offline which is perfectly fine for the majority of people and there is MS Office online as well.

You also stated computer illiterate and MS Office is definitely a step above that, albeit a minor one.

If you need a legitimate desktop environment I would get one of the cheapo chinese windows tablets and a bluetooth keyboard set up for like ~$300.

>cheapo chinese windows tablet and a bluetooth keyboard

jesus, you really hate your mom don't you?
>>
>>51439530

No, I got her a chromebook which is why I suggested one. It was the best thing I could possibly do for her even with money being no object.

I said cheap tablet because it's somewhat wasteful for someone to drop 1k on a computer that isn't being used by a power user. Chances are his mom is going to consume media 99% of the time and a tablet works well enough for that.

So given his options and that he seems to not want a chromebook I would suggest a surface.

If that's a waste of money to him a chinese tablet is perfectly fine.

>>51439581
the problem is that they don't have internet except through a Virgin Mobile hotspot due to where they live, although she does go into the city a good amount so she can hook into wi-fi when there, but when she's using it at home she would need local storage and software that works without a constant internet connection

WTF
>>
>>51439602
I meant she wouldn't want anything too big and bulky like a refurbed business laptop, elitebooks and chinkpads are quite heavy and bulky compared to a non-business laptop or an ultra book/surface 3

Cause your mum definitely needs an overpriced convertible tablet, not just a regular 300 bucks laptop.

fuck off, I never recommended it, I was looking for a laptop that would blow it away at the same price point

http://www.macofalltrades.com/MacBook-13-inch-2-4GHz-C2D-Mid-2010-p/mb-13-24-m10u.htm

Drop in 4gb of ram for $32 for NOS apple memory chips, or 8gbs of chink shit $34. (All on amazon, next day air).

Grab a $100 250GB SSD and it'll do everything you want just fine.

Or just buy a fucking surface.

Probably gonna get flak for posting chink stuff but...

Most of todays CPU/GPU are powerful as fuck.
http://techtablets.com/

Surface tablets are tablets and PCs in one and they run anything your mom wants.

Teclast Tablets get you W10 and Android Dualboot.

How good are these tablets?
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9BIdxL1wBPE

Well the fucking run CS:GO at 30 fps. It's ridiculous.

They're also cheap as fuck.

Install some Firefox/Chrome and a few addblockers to reduce bloat on websites. Then get whatever messenger you mom uses Skype/Viber whatever...

She can use Word, Excel and all the stuff if she needs to.

Most tech illiterates stay on their social networks anyways.

You can add these keyboard stands or simply use bluetooth keyboards with the tablets.

I think this is the best option for tech illiterate folk.

But if she really want a laptop just get her some I3 or AMD A4-A6 APU with an SSD so it's all fast.

Get a rmbp..

>>51439274
something with an i5 and 4GB RAM.
that's enough to keep almost everything running smoothly
