Question

Replacing a Logitech Revue

I'm looking for some suggestions. My 80 year old father has used a Logitech Revue hooked to a 55inch tv to surf the web for some years, but the Revue is no longer being updated (and no longer runs flash) and he needs to replace it with something.

He bought a new Smart TV, but unfortunately that doesn't do flash, either (some of his favorite web sites require it), and I also tried hooking up a Windows stick PC, but windows is too complicated for him and he also has problems seeing the icons.

Currently we're considering a ASUS Chromebox, but I don't know that much about them. Can he blow things up on a Chromebox like he could on the Revue? (His vision isn't great.) Is it easy to use? Or can someone suggest something else that would replace the Revue? Flash capability is a requirement. Thanks!

Answer
I have a Chromebook.

Since it's the same OS what did you want me to test? Be gentle as if you ask me to test 100 things or take more than a few minutes I may pass on this.

Even YouTube is moving off flash. So it's not Youtube to be tested, right?

Thanks!

Thanks for the reply. I know from the various reviews that the Chromebox will do flash, so that's not an issue - what I really want to know is if you can increase the size of the text and icons on the screen, and also how easy it is for a novice to use.
