The WOW! Computer offers seniors and other members of the AARP community a simplified computing experience that does not require software downloads, full touch screen navigation options and the ability to magnify text up to twice its native size. It also contains a streamlined user interface that includes basic programs, automatic updates and built-in antivirus software.
The WOW! Computer features an operating system that never requires additional software downloads or modifications, instead offering a custom system that automatically downloads updates from the developer whenever they become available. The system also includes all the programs a senior may need for full utilization of the system, including programs for sending emails, participating in video chats, browsing the Internet and managing a calendar. It also comes with a set of games and its own virus protection program to help prevent the theft of personal information or the corruption of the system.
Another prominent feature of the computer is its built-in touch screen, which enables the user to perform a variety of tasks by directly tapping on the corresponding section of the display. The touch system also offers text zooming options through a basic gesture. The computer also makes it easier for seniors to learn about different aspects of computer usage by removing the need to manage a complex system, as its operating system contains simple directions and large icons to display all information.
