Hello all, I apologise if this is a common thread and already answered. I am not that computer savvy.
I would like to buy my elderly ( interstate ) parents an Ipad. Xmas present. Keep their minds active.
Main tasks would be Skype (video calling ) to keep in contact with children and grandkids, internet browsing,
ebook and other simple tasks. If I purchase one and set it up here QLD., and send it down to them ( Vic ) can they keep the
Ipad updated through my I Tunes Acc. I will be covering the internet usage fees ( pre-paid ).
My father has a basic desk top, in a study. Not apple. I like the idea of them having a tablet in the lounge at the ready.
To summarise - Is an Ipad practical ( user friendly ) for them as stand alone unit.
Once set up how hard to keep it updated and backed up. ( without another mac in the house. )
Alternatives - macbook air 11 inch. or android tablet.
Thanks for any help or suggestions. Johnny B.
