Mom has an old Gateway (because the store was near her house) and she is a
Professor at some sort of collage. (sic)

So I'm thinking she should get an academic discount......where should I shop
and what should I buy her? She mostly grades paperwork on it (emailed word
docs). Should I get a Mac? Maybe a Mini?

She doesn't even do wireless now and I don't know that she cares
to.....laptop maybe though?
