What Laptops Are Suitable For Seniors

   It is very important for the elderly to be comfortable when using their laptops. The chair that they are using must be comfortable. The table must be well positioned and must be the right size. Finding the right chair and table will make things convenient for the elderly.  Elderly people will use their laptops commonly for facebook, getting in touch with their family by using such apps as skype, email purposes. If they are savvy enough, they can use it for banking purposes or even for their business.  

1. Some may use their laptops for their business and others may use it for their crafts and even for  watching movies and other entertainment purposes.

2. They may need other components such as a mouse, larger keys. Large printed keyboard stickers can be bought and they may need utility managers. If they are going to use their laptops for business purposes, they may need a laptop that has very good processing power. Seniors may have to note down the things that they need for a laptop.

3. Seniors may need software that they will use. Most laptops come with preloaded software.  This includes browsers. If you want a Chrome browser you may need to download it. There are other software that you might need like adobe photoshop or illustrator. Other software can be downloaded in case you need it. Get a very good anti-malware or antivirus software for your laptop’s protection.

4. Get a laptop that will suit your needs and your budget. There are inexpensive and expensive laptops out there that are good for the elderly. Buy a laptop that you need and there are a lot of laptops out there in the market that are on bargain. You may need a laptop that has good sound quality, The Screen resolution should e at least a FHD screen resolution ( 1920x1080 ) or even much more. I would recommend a Solid State Drive than a Hard Disk Drive because the SSD does not have magnets. HDD have magnets and it can wipe out your data. A laptop that is light in weight will be good for the elderly. Laptops that are 15 inches and 17 inches in size will be good for the elderly.
