They're in their 60s and really only need to edit documents, check e-mail, browse the web and possibly skype later on. My Mom says that she'll need to use Publisher....but I'm not to sure about that one.

Would a Chromebook be a better purchase?
At 60 many people aren't as open-minded to change the way they do things. But if they're the exception to the rule other than "browse the web Publisher" (I'm not sure that that is), there's nothing they can't do. And the need to be connected to the web might be tough if they don't have a well-connected house - and locations they travel too. I used mine for a week solid (packed the laptop away for a week), and simply found that I packed my MiFi "all the time".

Hell, if nothing else, if you have a kid, I'd order one and let them try it. If not, order the laptop and tell you kid they have a new toy...

But again, I'm liking mine...
