The best laptop for seniors in 2016 is dedicated to convenience of use and excellent basic functions, while being easily portable.

A large screen of 13 is one of the top priorities for elderly people, along with a weight restriction of 2.5 Kgs.Since the chief functions of the notebook would typically be emailing and other basic internet uses, an inbuilt Wi-Fi, MS Word and a DVD drive are absolute musts.

The best laptop for seniors also implements a dual core for faster processing, and 2GB RAM, under a $1000.

Make no mistake; this can at times be a frustrating notebook.

Although the Chromebook 15's 1080p screen is plenty large, it doesn't offer a great picture.

The Toshiba Satellite Radius 15 P55W-C5212-4K certainly works well as a large-screen laptop for power users, with good, though not superb, performance, a brilliant 4K display, and excellent system memory and SSD storage capacity.

uninspired build quality

Poor value for money compared to other variants.
