It seems like the wifi card on my father’s laptop has given up the ghost, can see APs but not connect Windows refused to work, Ubuntu would repeatedly ask for a password until giving up. Besides that, it was still on Windows 7 (which is either dead or about to die).
So we’re thinking that since it’s a rather old laptop and is having issues we might as well get a new one.
He mostly uses it for web browsing, email and the like so it doesn’t need to be fancy. We were thinking about a Chromebook but I’m hesitant because the password manager I was going to set him up with (Keepass) doesn’t have a ChromeOS version and I don’t particularly want to set up a yearly subscription for something close sourced like LastPass.
If you guys can suggest some good Windows laptops (or a Chromebook with a good password manager similar to Keepass) that’d be extremely helpful. OR if you guys know any good reviewers that cover the low end laptop market, that could be really useful too.
