She has no resources re Windows-based PCs, so iMac is the only way to go for her.
Is the Cybook the best option? (due to weight constraints) Is it the only option?
Will the Cybook be easy to work with in terms of downloading books for her with her iMac?
(I have a Sony PRS-500, which she loved, but the weight was marginal for her, and I've heard it's not compatible with her iMac.)

I apologize if this is difficult to read, but any helpful opinions would be appreciated.
If you would install Parallels, then she can use ebook Library to purchase ebooks from the Connect store. Just cannot use that to update firmware.

The Cybook does not require Windows to download books. So that might be better for her.
