I purchased this computer for my elderly parents and my main concerns were ease of use and longevity. I chose this computer because Windows 7 is more similar to the older Windows OS and I was afraid that Windows 8 would be too confusing for my dad. I also went with the i5 processor for a little more oomph than an i3. They have been using it for about a month now and everything looks like it is running fine. Their primary use is internet surfing so I can't imagine that they are going to run into any problems.
