John is trying to get his dad involved in computers and wants to get an iPad Pro so he can learn, send emails, etc. Leo says he got his mom a 12" iPad and she loves it. The accessibility features are great for elderly people, but the display can be hard to read for a senior. Another option is a Chromebook. They are super secure and easy to use, only working with a Chrome browser. He could also get a Chromebox which is essentially a desktop version. But iPads are great for seniors who are doing light typing and internet access.
Does the iPad have a file system? Leo says sort of. Every app has its own sandbox with limited sharing. There is a Files app though, but not like a desktop file system.
What about Android tablets? Leo says he would advise against it. He should go with the Chromebook, Chromebox or Chrome all-in-one. Those are the best value.
