This is a preliminary outline for a very basic presentation to seniors. Some of you may want to use this yourselves and of course I appreciate any suggestions or additions.
This came up because I manned a table at a "Fun over 55" fair yesterday showing some of things we've talked about at our community Computer Club. There were too many people expressing doubt that they'd want a computer at all or if they had one (sometimes forced upon them by children), they expressed fear and confusion.
I thought I'd offer this to help out some of those folks.
Why do I even want a computer?
What kind of computer should I buy?
How much Ram? How much disk space? How fast?
Geek-speak - what do these things mean?
How much money should I spend?
(If you have a computer now)
Should I upgrade what I have or buy new?
Where should I buy it?
What software should I buy?
What about a Printer?
What kind of Internet Service?
What about Viruses and Malware?
Buying on line - is it safe?
More than one computer?
Got something to add? Send me email.
