My mothers birthday is coming up and she has never used a computer before.
Would the Kindle be a good tool to introduce her to web browsing? Like Youtube and Facebook/Email? Music, checking the weather, and browsing her pictures?
I don't want to purchase something that is top dollar, like a Laptop so I'd figured the Kindle would be a great low cost tool to teach her the basics of web browsing and sending messages to family members.
$199 sounds much better than spending upwards of $350 for a laptop. Definitely, I'd get her something more premium down the road.
I know the Kindle is not a full blown computer, which I'd thought it would be great for someone with no background in comp, like an introduction. Doesnt matter if it is not fast since non-tech savvy people dont pay much attention to that. I just want it for the basics so she can use it as such.
How is the PDF format? I'm assuming she will enjoy reading on it.
So should I purchase one?
