Others will cover functional details better than I can. This review will focus instead upon my experience in purchasing this product for my mother, who is now 90 years old. She had been using MSN WEB-TV for the past eight years or so, but locally it had become too slow. She wanted something better and had planned to purchase a laptop and cable internet on her own.

While my mom is pretty smart, she has never commanded a mouse and she has pretty severe arthritis, so I knew I had to seek an alternative. That was to be the Telikin.

Over the past 10 years, I have purchased three laptops. The first two each cost $2500+. The most resent, an ASUS, was around $700, and so I figured I could afford to spend that much on mom even though I didn't have a good track record and only the word of Rachel Ray to go on. I wanted to wait a few more years to see how this start-up company would pan out, but I realized my mom was 90, and I wanted her to have it now to enjoy it while she can.

So that's what went into this leap of faith. I wasn't disappointed, Rachel Ray. It is "the coolest thing ever.", at least so far.

The design is very beautiful; you can put it anywhere you might place a photo-frame. It has a huge 18.5" touch-screen display with beautiful, bright color and resolution, including integral speakers, camera, and microphone; video-chat ready. And the computer is part of the touch display. A nice white, color-coordinated keyboard and mouse are included, but my mom loves the touch screen.

While it has dual processors, 2GB RAM, and a 350GB HD, this computer isn't about number crunching. If you are into multivariate statistics, this isn't for you.

After much agonizing because of the huge discrepancy of the reviews posted, I finally decided to take a chance and buy a Telekin for my Mother-In-Law. Here is my honest evaluation of this unique but OVERPRICED machine.

First, let's be honest about computers in general. Unless you are a techno-geek who loves cyber-problem solving, they are ALL unreliable piles of junk. I have owned several types of computers over the years and I have NEVER had one that performed to a satisfactory standard of user-friendly ease. All of them are persnickety gadgets that freeze, crash and do strange and unexplainable things at a moment's notice. At this time, I own a slick, top-of-the-line Mac and I find myself on the phone to Apple tech support almost daily because of the problems that continually arise.

Second. Please be sure to get it straight in your head what the issues are here. This is a case of quality vs functionality vs simplicity. Because the Telikin is a SIMPLE COMPUTER there have to be some concessions to functionality. There are things that it will not do because in order to make it simple, they had to limit it's functionality. This isn't necessarily a bad thing because the market this product is aimed at do not require huge functionality. In my opinion, it is perfectly legitimate to limit a machine's functionality in the name of simplicity. IT IS NOT, HOWEVER, ACCEPTABLE TO COMPROMISE A MACHINE'S QUALITY IN THE NAME OF SIMPLICITY. And that is the chief failing of the Telikin - they have produced a low functioning, poor quality computer and they try to explain away the faults and failings because it is SUPPOSED TO BE SIMPLE. I am sorry, but it is not OK to sell a second rate machine for twice it's worth, simply because it is simple. Not a good excuse.

My friend who is 86 years old and lives an active lifestyle called me for tech advice. He saw an add in the Sunday parade magazine for a Wow computer for seniors. Initially compared to other computers I thought $1,000 was a bit too much for a desktop computer. I quickly jumped online and found the Telikin TLMS18T3202W Home Desktop Computer on Amazon for $665, it apparently is an older prototype of the Wow. I showed him the computer on the Amazon website. He called Amazon and asked many questions, and he said they were very helpful. They advised he could buy it and try it out, and return it if he wasn't satisfied.
Just to give you some background. I gave him an older Windows desktop PC. It was a good working computer. He has a high speed cable internet connection. Unlike someone like me who has been working on computers for 30 years. He has said many times, he struggles to navigate the Windows desktop. He quickly becomes confused when something pops up on the computer. He is leery of popups for Windows update, Flash updates, Antivirus updates, etc. Like many seniors he is leery he may get a virus, or damage the computer. He does online banking, email, a few web sites, and maybe a video.
The Telkin "Wow" desktop is a great computer for all it offers. It has a touch screen so you can either operate it with a mouse or touch the screen. The computer is designed where you can't get lost clicking on something. The Navigation menu stays on the left hand side of screen at all times. So you can't click on something and loose your Navigation menu. The items on the Navigation menu are common items a senior would want to check. Video chat, weather, email, pictures, games, etc. The Navigation are large and easy to read, and can be activated just by touching the screen.
