What is a good easy to use computer for Internet use?

by on March 1, 2011

Q: I have very little knowledge with computers. I do not own a computer. I am going to need access to the Internet 24/7 for the next 4-5 months. That is all will need it for. I do not need a lot of “bells and whistles”. I would not want to rent or lease. i do not want to get into any long term contracts. I want something that can be used alot over the next 5 months, then sit in the closet -until who knows when? Help me -is the answer a laptop or maybe a netbook or something else?? I do not mind putting up $$$ up front. i need it to VERY easy to use. Please be specific in what brand and model I should buy. Where are the best deals?

    A netbook might be the best choice for you. Best price with simple features.

    The choice is up to you on the brand but a few good brands for netbooks in my opinion are the following. I have used each brand personally and all of them offer the same basic portability, and internet browsing.
    Dell:
