Out of the Blue

I'm back in the BlueTower after a bit of running around. My bro and I spent some time in the country at my dad's old house moving massive piles of wet leaves before winter sets in. And yes, it's as fun as it sounds, which is bad news for WalterEgo, because I had to abandon him due to having plans and wanted to finish next week, but he's trying to soldier on without me. Guess he wasn't willing to leave well enough alone.

Anyone here use Google Docs(Drive) exclusively?

My parents need a new device for occasional word processing and spreadsheets and they also want something near the couch for casual internet browsing and Facebook. My mom has been considering the Surface but the price for what you get... I've told her to hold off. She probably expects me to get her a tablet for Christmas, I'm thinking either Nexus 7 or 10.

So Nexus 7 or 10 for the couch and trips.
And either a new laptop or hand-me-down desktop from me for the desk.

Uh, rambling aside, and back to my original question... Do you guys think Google Docs is a sufficient replacement for very occasional home office needs for someone who's only previously used Office?
