Unless he's really a technophobe, I think the minimal difficulty of learning the Mac is worth the benefits. Of course a very basic Windows computer can be had a lot cheaper if that's an issue.

If he's already accustomed to Windows, I don't recommend changing to a new OS. Updating to a new version of Windows is difficult enough for someone who perhaps is a little conservative in his outlook.

Naruto is such a stupid show.

I've never seen it. Never heard of it before this meme. Have no intention of ever watching it. But it tickled my funny bone when the meme showed up. "They'll never catch us if we run like Naruto with our arms out behind us."  ::)

It's not actually such a bad show, for an anime series aimed at early teens.

Neither franchise exists in Australia, and KFC as far as I know have certainly not announced the heart attack inducing abomination illustrated above.

Naruto is such a stupid show.

It is, however, extremely popular.

I'm happy with my Lenovo box. Worth a look at the line.

Have you asked him if he'd like a laptop? Minimal gear involved and it's portable. ASUS makes some good one. I've had one for years.

Suburban Commando really?!/10
This movie was really big in 1991 and its funny to think of how Dwayne Johnsons career could have gone! I did really enjoy its silliness and 90sness though! Hulk Hogan as a space mercenary forced to take a 6 week vacation on earth really does work. And the star wars/masters of the universe/predator homages have actually aged very well and remind me that I actually got all those references as a 10 year old. What were my parents letting me watch?!

Oh man... I haven't thought about that movie in ages!  Surprised to hear you say it holds up (even if only in a kitschy kind of way) as I assumed it would be a huge cringe-fest like some of his other works of the period.
