Go Computer: Made for Grandma
by Mark R
It would appear that someone has finally invented a computer designed for Seniors with the Go Computer. All I can say is: it’s about time!
The Go Computer is designed to be simple and “easy-on-the-eye”. I guess the large typeface keyboard and color-coded keys is what makes it easy for those who are visually impaired. In addition to the big font hardware, the Go Computer runs MyGait software, an Operating System with a large typeface and easy magnifier. Another bonus for seniors is the one click access to the email and web.
You may also note the trackball mouse and the all-in-one architecture. There isn’t really a disk drive tower, but a desktop Eeebox PC on the back of the display.
There are only two things required to make this work: a power outlet and a broadband Internet connection. The latter of that could be difficult for some senior citizens. Believe it or not, I just helped my mother get her Broadband Internet connection set up. Before that, she was using dial-up and AOL for over ten years. Some of you are not liking the sound of that.
So, if you know someone who is in need of a computer like this, you should be able to get it on the Go Computer website for about $799.00.
