I am looking for a simple tablet for my 78 year old mother to use. She only wants to access Facebook and Skype and has never even used a computer before. I don't want her getting confused with a bunch of apps, so can it be set up just a few things?

Yes, just don't buy any more Apps, then it won't have a bunch of Apps.

Yes, you can set it up with whatever content she wants on it.

Does she have access to a wifi network, though? A tablet will require a wifi connection for things like Skype or Facebook.
