If you want to surprise your elderly relatives with a laptop, keep reading Insider Monkey’s latest article about the easiest laptops to use for seniors in 2018. The laptop market is over-saturated, to say the least. But thanks to the criteria mentioned above, we were able to narrow down our search significantly. We’re hardly into 2018, so not many new laptops have made it into the market as of yet. So we will be primarily focusing on laptops released earlier, and we will also take into consideration how well customers have received these laptops. Also budget is a major factor, so we will be covering entry level to top level laptops on our list, with two products in each price range. A laptop having a bright screen preferably full HD, with 4 GB of RAM (although we recommend going for 8 GB), decent processing power, and finally, a responsive keyboard is all we need.
Now without a further ado let’s see what Insider Monkey has investigated for us. We have picked three of the easiest laptops to use for seniors in 2018 from their list.
The first one is Acer – 14″ Chromebook, it runs on Google’s Chrome OS — which is very fast and has awesome cloud computing support built in. The processor is a bit lackluster, but if you are not doing processor-heavy tasks, like playing games or rendering videos, this processor will do pretty good. It has a full HD very vibrant display and a great keyboard. It also has a great keyboard and a decent track-pad, so a third party mouse or keyboard will not be necessary. It is lightweight, yet it has a full metal construction, making it one of the most sturdy laptops on this list perfect for an elderly user. The only con to this model is its 32 GB storage, which can be a problem for some users. The second one should be Lenovo – Yoga 710. The last mid-range laptop on our list of easiest laptops to use for seniors in 2018, comes from Lenovo. This model is essentially a slightly upgraded version of the previous model. This time, the laptop offers full HD display along with full aluminum construction for added structural integrity and a 360° flip-and-fold design. This model also has 256GB solid state drive (SSD) for lightning fast read and write speeds. All in all a complete upgrade over the previous entry for some extra money.
