Why would you have a problem, Joan? Do you have a disability or vision problem? (I have disabilities, both wife and self have failing eyesight.)
Our lappy has a 17" widescreen and under Windows 7 there are ways to minimise vision and other accessibility problems. Try <Control Panel> <Ease of Access Centre> and there are many tools to help with this.
If you use a lappy mainly at home, you could also connect a separate monitor. Keyboards are usually OK, except for the smaller Netbooks. I would suggest a visit to a large computer reseller, just to try out the models there. Note down the model best suited to you, then buy cheaper online. (Cheeky,
I know, but works!)
Just noticed where you live. We have spent many happy holidays in West Wales, what a beautiful place to live.
