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?)

To keep this on topic (at least mariginally), my mother did not know what a desktop was either. I told her it was the screen and she said 'Then why don't you just say 'the screen'?'

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'
