Default Need a KISS Internet Device for an 80 something

Need a Keep it Simple Stupid Internet Device for an 80 something. Subject says it all.

Looking for the simplest Internet Device for an old fart that has not previously used a computer to send e-mail and do a simple web page.

Ideas?

I would just get a good quality tablet with a big, bright screen.

You can place shortcuts to web pages on the home screen, and typing emails isn't that bad on the onscreen keyboard. Also...angry birds.

Question

Advertised in Military History magazine. No idea how well it works. Check the reviews I guess.

That looks good, Linux even better.

ETA: a little search found this is a Telikin Computer and can be bought direct for $300 less than the above link, good reviews.

Thanks for the heads up.

browse around slickdeals.net and bensbargains.net
a tablet sounds like a good idea or even a laptop (gonna have to setup some user account restrictions) if you have a few extra bucks
