Gizmodo believes that Chromebooks are the perfect device for the tech challenged, including many older people who simply fear the word computer. Google have reduced prices so that Chromebooks now start at $300. I am not sure I agree. There is obviously a place for the Chromebook, even on price alone. but for every person who fears a computer there is another who fears a keyboard. That’s why tablets are being bought in ever increasing numbers by older people who have never had a computer before. Tablets are enabling. They don’t look like computers and are completely intuitive.
