Best ASUS Tablets for Seniors

The fifteen tablet computers discussed in the sections below were all selected specifically for their appeal to seniors. Their light weight makes it easier for aging, weakening hands to hold them, and their screen size and other factors makes them more viewable for eyes that are beginning to fail. They are all of the ASUS line, which has done a great deal to make its tablets comfortable in the hands and easy on the eyes; some have resolutions of over a million pixels on a small screen! A link to an image of each has been included in its section. All items discussed here have ratings of four to five stars. The links provided are to a device of a specific color, but other options are also available with all of them.
