Christmas is coming up and this is my first year working full-time after getting a job (So grateful to not be affected by COVID this year). So this time around I thought it would be well to buy a nice present for my stepfather. I decided to get him an entry laptop and would like your help in finding a really great machine for him that doesn't break the bank.
For context, he is a 50-something year old Australian who basically didn't use any sort of computer or 'modern' technology until about 8 years ago. Before getting his first iPhone 4, all he had was a landline phone. Now, he uses an iPad and iPhone SE 2020 as his personal devices.
He still struggles with a computer; he's the kind of guy who looks for a key, presses it, then looks for the next key on the keyboard and presses the next one, and so on. He told me months ago that they started to use computers at work for data entry and timesheets (he's a boilermaker by trade), and he's told me several times that he wished he had a laptop to practice on.
So my budget is a laptop sub-600 but I'm willing to bend to go just above that if you guys had any suggestions. Laptop would be preferable. Won't be playing any games at all; most probably just internet browsing and watching videos, making bank payments, online shopping etc.
Thanks in advance,
