My mom has a 5-6 year old Dell laptop that is giving her a "battery low, needs to replaced soon" warning. My mom was told that when the battery goes, she won't be able to use the computer even when the power cord is connected. Is this true? It's $150 to replace.
Mom only uses her computer for email, surfing the net and some word processing. During the next few weeks/months she will have a need to watch movies.
- How would she fair with an ipad?
- We don't have wifi in the house so she'd have to get a wireless data plan, right?
- Is a 3G ipad as fast as her old dell on broadband?
- How do you download movies? Do you need a service or do you buy them?
