This 80-something lady moved to an iPad.

e upgraded an ancient Dell laptop (333 MHz Pentium, 256MB RAM, 4.7 GB disk) from its original Windows 98 to Xubuntu 8.04 in May 2009. (Resurrect old hardware with Linux) It worked well, for such a wimpy piece of hardware. It was destined for use by a lady who’s over 80 years old and non-technical. Initial reports were positive.

This weekend I learned that she has replaced this feeble laptop with a new Apple iPad 2. Seems like a smart move to me.
