Let her decide.

My son went to Apple. I did not understand it. Difficult for me because I worked in IT for Megacorp that was one of the paramount supplies. Plus, I could not negotiate for an Apple unit whereas I had an employee discount for all product.

Then DW wanted a ipad for travel. Fours years on I also have an ipad. Great value. When my desktop dies, if ever, it will be replaced by an Apple assuming the product attributes remain constant.

Just remember that you cannot install traditional software like MS or such on a Chromebook. They have "apps" that run such things but not installed on the laptop itself. Everything like "Word" or "Excel" are in the cloud.

I love it actually as these programs are updated automatically and you never have to worry about viruses etc. With a few exceptions I've found that everything a MS or Apple can do, the Chromebook can do
Living well is the best revenge!
