My husband doesn’t use his computer that much. He checks Facebook, looks at Craigslist, and occasionally watches a movie from DVD. He would like to have photos on his machine, and play games once in a while.
For all of his needs except the DVD watching, a tablet would probably work just fine. He rarely types, and is a hunt and peck kind of guy anyway, so the lack of a keyboard wouldn’t be an issue. In fact, he might prefer the onscreen keyboard anyway – autocorrect is very handy when you’re not a fast typist.
I know you can get software to burn DVDs to a drive, but that costs a lot of money, doesn’t it? Watching online is an option now, but we may be moving to a new place where Internet could be limited for a while, and I’d hate to deny him the occasional movie by choosing a tablet.
So, what are the options for DVDs? Is there a way to connect an external DVD player to a tablet? I just know he would love a tablet, except for that minor detail. Any suggestions?
