That pretty much sums it up. I went ahead and went with the bundle I referenced above, added a 23" Hanns-G monitor, MSoft Wireless Keyboard & Mouse & some cheap-o speakers. I came in at something like $377. Like I said, it's for our senior center. It's used primarily by the Director for surfing the net, printing recipes & email. They occasionally play music on it for special events such as Thanksgiving/Christmas dinners, etc, even though I have to show him how to load it up each time.
They'be been using a 2008 iMac that was forced on them by a former Board Trustee who was a Mac freak, the only one I know of in the Village. She tried to teach them how to use it but alienated most of them with her teaching methods which included flash cards, pop quizzes & tests. One senior told me "I didn't live to be 84 years old to repeat the first goddamn grade!" Said Trustee lasted one term and was voted out by a landslide.
The AMD processor seemed to be OK for such tasks because, like I said earlier, I don't want to go completely backward to a Pentium or Celeron. The computer itself only cost $229 including mobo, 1 TB HDD, CPU, 4 GB PC3-12800 RAM, case & PSU. Figured I really couldn't beat that deal for what little I really needed in the way of performance. I'd planned on a much smaller drive but, again, I couldn't pass up that deal.
