Computer Recommendations?

Anyone have any recommendations for a computer for a 64 year old woman who has little to no computer experience/knowledge? She just wants a very basic computer for email/internet and receiving/printing faxes. Tech support will probably be the deciding factor, and Dell has some in-home service after phone troubleshooting, so I'm leaning towards Dell for now. But Apple, HP, Gateway or anything else would also be considered. Thanks for your suggestions.

Re: Computer Recommendations?

Get her a mac....its easy to use...if not a mac Dell has generally good tech support, but make sure to buy the extended warranty the standard 90day warranty is crap.

Yep, she said she'd like a fire-based computer with a 30" monitor

So yeah, probably Dell or Mac. Mac would be easier to use I guess, but wouldn't have the in-home tech support that I would expect that she'd need.
