Get a cetrain very well known brand of computer. After 10 hours a day for 6 months on the phone with their tech support in India you'll have a college education. In the mean time just play, explore and understand there really is something besides YF and porn on the internet. I'm older and probably slower than you and I've only been messing with computers since just before I came on YF so there's hope. I din't even have a 12 year old to teach me, but that is highly recommended.
