What's the best computer for my elderly mother?

Episode 1053 (1:09:05)

BJ from San Diego, CA
iPad Air

BJ is wondering if there's a simpler device for her elderly mother than a traditional desktop computer. Leo says that an iPad is an ideal choice for her. But she would have to type on the screen. Despite that, for pictures of grandkids, email, browsing and more, the iPad is easy to use and very secure. Leo gave one to his mother and she loves it.

Another good choice is a Chromebook. It's an affordable, simple laptop that's also very secure. If something does get messed up, the powerwash feature will reset the computer to how it was when she bought it.
