Re: Is Telikin Linux PC an "Up & Comer" ?
An "Up & Comer"? I don't think so..
The "Seniors" market segment is huge, and will be growing.
Any time I see a computer or other technical apparatus advertised as 'for Seniors', it's main functions are always 'easy email, photo sharing and web browsing', with emphasis on 'easy'. Nothing more. There are other ways to use a computer, and I imagine even 'Seniors' know a few of them.
I don't like the simple, toy-like appearance of this one and it's too expensive for what you get. What justifies the price of $600? I couldn't find anything about being able to download apps, so what you see is what you get? No mention of memory or disk size. No mention of cd player or usb ports.
Computers for children are similar and the cost is much less. Even Apple is making one cheaper. I find it offensive to assume Seniors would actually spend so much to get so little just because they're older.
Just my thoughts and my opinion.
