Can anyone tell me wether the GO computer is a good computer and worth purchasing for a senior?

I would not pay a monthly fee on top of having already paid for the computer (which itself could not be described as being a good price for what it is).

I can see this being attractive may be to those who are terrified of computers going wrong and don't mind paying over the odds for the "hand holding" service, but not otherwise.

And what if you regret the purchase? Are you going to be able to sell it on when a monthly fee is involved for the buyer? (The Go PC won't work if you don't pay for the service).

Companies like that are cashing in on the technophobia of many older people.

There are much better computers for less money in the mass-market PC sector (and no monthly fee to pay).
