My aunt's 10 year old desktop is about to croak. She uses it for checking email, paying bills, and keeping spreadsheets of household accounts. Her monitor and wireless mouse are so old, they won't connect to a newer tower, so she'll have to buy new ones of those, too. She wants a desktop. What would be good for her? Thanks, all.
My Lord and my God.

The Curt Jester

They do make adapters to connect older monitors, etc., into newer equipment.
The royal feast was done; the King
Sought some new sport to banish care,
And to his jester cried: "Sir Fool,
Kneel now, and make for us a prayer!"

The jester doffed his cap and bells,
And stood the mocking court before;
They could not see the bitter smile
Behind the painted grin he wore.

He bowed his head, and bent his knee
Upon the Monarch's silken stool;
His pleading voice arose: "O Lord,
Be merciful to me, a fool!"

Well I was wrong, the computer was bought in 2015.  :o She's getting a Dell. I asked my uncle, who used to teach computer classes at university, and that's what he picked out.

I don't know the specs. He just said it came with a CPU, monitor, keyboard, and mouse.

Crazy amount of value.  The memory speed is likely faster than the CPU.  Should work with the old monitor with an adaptor.

That's sick, I've never seen that before.

She specifically said she didn't want a mini pc.
