I need to purchase a laptop for my parents who are in their 70s and I need it to have a large screen or purchase a separate LCD flat monitor for them - 20".
They will really only use the computer for emails and internet browsing. They have an old/huge Dell that no longer works.
My budget is $600 for the laptop & monitor. Does anyone have any recommendations for a simple laptop, no bells and whistles needed.
