Laptop / Desktop for parents please

8
Posted 25th Apr
Hello

I’d like to buy my parents a laptop or desktop computer if anyone has any advice.

Budget is around £500 but go up to £700 if it’s good.

Just used for quizzes etc during lockdown. Would also like Microsoft office if possible. Basic internet stuff, some streaming of Netflix and the like. Heavy twitter use.

Many Thanks

Thought from the title you were wanting to swap your parents for one

OP not stated preference but suspect a UK-based supplier will be preferred.
Just get them a chrome book
If you really don’t need the mobility or compactness, go for desktop- bigger screen, better ergonomics, easier to upgrade in future.

something like the above paired with a monitor like the below can be had for £700. Expired but similar deals come round so at least gives you an idea of value. Would beat any laptop sub £1k at least on specs. Pc above could do with a hard drive, add on £50 for 2tb.

You can't install proper programs on them.


Just going from what the op said
