Okay, how about this. The first time my mother ever typed on a computer (not an Apple unfortunately), my mother kept looking for the carriage return. (Remember? On the manual typewriters?)

Seriously, my mother has no problems with the iMac aside from not saving where she wanted to save something and my mother is one of the 'seriously technically declined'
