Many of my clients only use the computer to read email, check facebook and surf the web a little. They don't do pictures, or music or even play many games. If you fit into this category, you may want to consider getting a Kindle Fire instead of a laptop. Why???
The Kindle Fire lets you connect to the Internet so you can check email and surf the web, but also gives you the added advantages of a lightweight, easy to carry computer which you can also read books on. So in essence, you kind of have the best of both worlds ... being able to read while still having a way to check email, facebook and surf the web.
Kindle Fire's are especially useful when traveling! You don't have to bulky books to read, and you can stay connected to friends and family at home with one handy easy to carry gadget!
