Why don't you go to walmart and get one of their $400 system? Heck, even Best Buy is selling an e-machines for $360 (no rebates required with a $170 instant rebate), it has a Celeron D 352, 512MB DDR2, 120GB HDD, DVD/CD-RW combo, ATI Xpress 200 graphics AND it comes with a 17" CRT monitor.

Look in the Sunday's paper, add section, page 22.

That should be more than enough.

umm... maybe?

$149.00 refurbished.

Don't know much if anything about the unit, but a buddy if mine got one similar for his Mother so that she could surf and use e-mail.

Simple, but not flexible.

Garage Sales.

I have scored a couple of almost fully-functional units in this manner , I have also found a lot of crap ... I re-build and repair then donate. You could do the same, but donate to yourself.

Also, check with your co-workers, aquaintances and freinds... some have "old computers" sitting in the closet or in the warehouse (got 2 that way).

Put the word out. The downside is that you may be inundated with hardware that is non-functional.... then you gotta make a recycling run.

Athlon 64 is super cheap now, you could go budget with them.

Athlons are way too good for an internet machine !
Get a Pentium 4 @ 2Ghz, that'll be enough...
