Ipad, Tablet, or Netbook for casual surfing and streaming?

Recommended Posts

I wonder if a Chromebook would be good for that?   We don't have one, but I have read here on WTM of students going through college with a Chromebook.   I am increasingly frustrated with Microsoft Windows and am moving to Linux, but I still have ONE critical legacy Windows Application.    The most trouble free OS that I am using is Android in my cell phone, so a Chromebook would probably be equally trouble free. Chromebooks have long battery life and require WiFi access. Good luck with what you buy him!

I started out with a Kindle Fire and was happy with it.  Now I have a touchscreen Dell Chromebook and I really like it better when I'm at home.

For just looking around the internet and reading my iPad is great. As it would be for watching things (although I don't do much of that). If his casual use involves much typing I'd look at a Chromebook.
