You COMPLETELY missed the point.
Uh she can check her email in about 1 min. You're WAY overexaggerating the hardware--productivity ratio.
There is a point where that's "all you need." She doesn't need a computer that's 5x faster, you see. She will not benefit from a faster CPU or more RAM or better graphics; spending that $200 would be utterly pointless.

My point exactly. That extra money spent would yield no return.
