  •  I just helped my parents replace their comps (3+ / 0-)

    They're 72 and 73, and they still had the desktops from my dad's job...which were old before he retired 6 years ago.  One had a gig of RAM, the other a half gig, and they were pentium 4's.

    My parents are notoriously cheap, so they got a desktop for $400 and a laptop for $450 that more than meet their needs - it's amazing how cheap computers have gotten these days.  And those weren't even the cheapest options available!

    They won't play many of the newest games, but they'll do almost anything else.  I personally couldn't survive with those (I have a sweet gaming rig) but you should easily be able to replace your ancient machines for not all that much moolah.

    •  Yep. We're trying out a refurbished all-in-one (0+ / 0-)

      we found on the Dell site. Out the door for 529.00 - It's got more processor/disk space than this laptop I'm on which cost us 800 bucks 2 years ago. I have high hopes.
