The time has come for this household to upgrade the "old man's" computer hardware. Win XP on a 15 year old IBM laptop, an old i mac stuck at 10.6.8 and a slightly older i book; good friends all as is the other IBM laptop I still have Win 95 and Netscape 1 on and the Tandy 100. Ha! There is much newer hardware in this house too, but none of it is "exclusive". I am looking for my next "computing tool". Portable, reliable, and BOATING FRIENDLY. I have cameras to take photographs and phones for calling. I want a "computer?". Are there any obvious choices? Platforms? I don't want something so small it fits in my pocket. A "full sized" screen is required for these aging eyes.
