One Windows machine works like the next so did you try out an Apple?
Most of the Apple laptops have 1000 cycle batteries so life is more than 3 times that of your average Windows laptop so that's a win for Apple.
My husband is visually impaired. I would like to purchase a device that would allow us to look at photos/videos from our digital camera and search the net together. That's about all we'll do on it (we don't do gaming, and have a desktop for printing, etc.). Screen size and clarity are important, as is ease of operation. We're not tech-savvy. Battery life is a factor, portability less so. Price doesn't enter in too much, but I'd like not to pay for features we don't need and won't use.
Thanks for your help
