Is there a simple answer to 'what to get a parent whose Win7 desktop will shortly reach end of life, as it can't be upgraded to Win10'? Win7 support finally ends in Jan.
Needs to be Windows for familiarity. Web, Word docs only I think. Existing screen is OK, so I think a small desktop is the way to go.
Complete Intel NUCs seem to start at £400 for a dual core Celeron, which is probably adequate, but a bit more money than expected.
Edit: I guess the answer is probably a small-ish refurbed corporate desktop like: https://www.ebuyer.com/767949-refurbished-hp-elite-8300-core-i5-4gb-250gb-sff-desktop-pc-cb-pc-hp-8300-sff-i5-4-250-w10pro
maybe adding a small SSD, for about £250.
