Elderly Parents + iPad - Computer = ???

So, my parents have decided to join the rest of us here in the 21st Century and get Internet access and an iPad. As the free technical support of the family, it's fallen on me to get the device up and running and to keep it running. Difficulty level: they do not own a computer. Help me think this through from all angles so I'm not getting daily calls for assistance. [more inside]

Please advise me on a forthcoming computer upgrade

My vintage 2008 Macbook is eagerly gazing at the pasture that has been beckoning it for a few years now. I have replaced the hard-drive and maxed out the RAM, but the poor little guy is simply ready for a well-deserved rest. So - what's next for me and when? Macbook Pro? Air? iMac? iPad? Difficulty level: incorporating moderate music production, Netflix, general web use, somewhat limited funds, and massive over-thinking. [more inside]

New or refurbished iPad "3"?

Is it better to buy a new or refurbished ipad "3"? Apple is selling a refurbished current generation iPad 16GB Wireless for $50 off the retail price. Comes with 1-yr warranty too. My husband thinks it's not a good enough deal and that I should go for a new one. I'm tempted to save the $50. What would you recommend?

Hindi Keyboard

iPad 2 + Wireless Keyboard, in India. Currently Hindi is not offered as an international option on the iPad, which I guess is understandable since they'd have to create an entirely new touch-screen keyboard for it. But with an external keyboard, shouldn't I be able to use the QWERTY Hindi keyboard available on my Mac? Anyone have any idea how I can make this happen?

Location-aware photos = virtual reality on an ipad?

Is there software that lets me move around an ipad/iphone/android in 3D space and see the world through a huge collection of old photo? Think Microsoft Photosynth displayed on an ipad with accelerometer data to change the picture. (I've got the photo collection; I just need to find a program/device that will let me display it.)
