Buy devices which will be updated in the coming years, so rather get iOS than an el-cheapo-china-android-phone.
Prefer MacOS to Linux to Windows.
Update often and instantly.
Chromebooks are great for someone who just needs online access. They auto update and have built in security, would definitely be my suggestion for people with limited computer experience.
I never tried Chromebooks but I must say that the seem to be a great budget option for simple online access !
