All Macs these days have wifi, so you could just throw out the cable, but
to be honest for a 'non-computer person' the cognitive load involved in
adapting from PC to Mac is probably greater than the integration benefit.

Having said that, Apple make great laptops and iMacs have great screens, so
I'd recommend going to an Apple Store and seeing if there's sufficient
levels of 'I want one of those' after having a few minutes playing with
