My wife would be mad if she saw this and she denies it every time but, she's a bit rough with electronic equipment if she's having a hard time with it... which happens... often enough.
Sometimes she opens a laptop a little too aggressively... things of that nature. They're just not all made extremely well for that kind of thing.
Anyway... long story made short... I have to get her something new and soon. She's doing a lot on Ebay, shopping, selling... couponing... facebook... and little else.
May just pick out another laptop... wouldn't mind one of those rugged ones but those are WAY too expensive...
Sometimes I think a tablet would be good for her... and some time ago, microsoft had a commercial for a tablet they were dropping off of things and it was still holding up. (anyone know which one that was?)
Problem with that is... she seems to have trouble doing some things on some tablets. I don't know if it's just the cheap tablets she's tried or if tablets are simply limited compared to a laptop. She needs to be able to use certain apps and/or programs for certain sites she visits.
I wish there was a real easy solution to her computer woes... she always says "this thing is a piece of junk" and she says it about every computer she ends up taking over... I try to suggest it might not be the machine but she doesn't want to hear that. What can you do?
Any suggestions? laptop vs tablet? recommended brands for someone that might not be super gentle??? thoughts at all?
