You may be one of the few folks to have a tech savvy Grandma like my Nonna P (Hi NONNA!), who can spout the virtues and advantages of SSD (solid state drive) versus HD (hard drive), and will gladly explain why CPU speed matters, if you’re planning on binging Games of Thrones on your laptop. However, if your other Grammy (it’s okay Grammy J, I won’t reveal your full name) is like mine, not too long ago, she was still looking for the off/on switch (not button, but a switch, y’all!).
Today, let’s check out a couple of the best laptops we carry, which will help nudge your tech challenged relative into this century, just in time for Christmas.
A great option for the Grammy J’s of the world, is our Dell Latitude E6420. This specific configuration of the E6420, has the Intel core i5-2520M, 2.5GHz, 4GB of DDR3 memory, 500GB of hard drive, and a 14.1-inch widescreen LED LCD display. This laptop is a steal at $239.99!
Grammy J bought this a few months ago, and of course, immediately after showing her the laptop, she says “Can I play Solitaire on the laptop like I do on my big computer?” “Heck yes Grammy J, sure you can, but now you can stream NCIS, all day long, too!”, I exclaimed. SOLD. She’s been happy as a peach, streaming her shows, while drinking her tea at her corner Starbucks, just like a true techie/Starbucks squatter.
So, Grammy J is on a roll now, you guys. She’s discovered social media (yep, 10 years later) and wants to save EVERY PICTURE she owns, on her laptop. She’s ready for an upgrade with a ton of storage space, so she’s buying (well, Gramps is) the Dell Latitude E6430. I’ve picked out the following configuration for her, which will meet her upgraded needs. She’ll be thrilled with the E6430, which is powered by an Intel 3rd Generation Core i5-3320M, 2.6GHz dual core processor, 8GB of DDR3 memory, and 256GB SSD (solid state drive), which will provide plenty of storage space for her pictures (sorrynotsorry Instagram, Grammy J is coming for you!). At $344.99, it’s the lowest price it’s been all year!
Grammy J may not be a bona fide techie like Nonna P yet, but she’s making strides, y’all! Stay tuned for our next post to learn which high tech, fancy pants item Nonna P is treating herself to for Christmas (hint- she’s got her eye on our Desktops)!
Grammy J LOVES her laptop!
