My friend is looking to buy something, he's not sure if he wants a laptop or a tablet, he has never owned a computer and has very little computer knowledge. He would like something cheap and easy to use, he's not working right now do to an extended illness and I don't think he will be returning to work any time soon so he is on a tight budget. Thanks.
