My mom (finally!) bought a new laptop at a Boxing Day sale today. She knows the basics of using a computer but not much more - she'll likely use her new machine for e-mail, surfing, typing the odd letter or recipe to print out, looking at her digital photos and not much more.
I'm on a Mac and haven't set up a new Windows machine in quite awhile so wanted to check to make sure I'm not missing anything important.
