So a family member is going to have some pretty major surgery here pretty soon, and will be on his back for quite some time afterword. We’re looking at getting him either a tablet or a netbook, so he can have lightweight accessibility for quick web browsing and streaming of Netflix, Hulu, etc.
I had personally suggested the Acer A0722 Netbook, now found at Amazon for $333!
However, there are thoughts that that may be too bulky for in-bed use and that something more along the lines of a tablet would be better suited for this use. I heard from another friend that, long term, the tablet would get more use as well.
Thoughts from the good people out there in the tech world? If you do suggest a Tablet, it would have to be on the Verizon network and net too incredibly difficult to figure out.
