$2oo? Not likely. Maybe if you can get $250 or $300 so you can get one of those store specials. I think dell still wants $300 for their basic computer. Walmart has one that hits $250. Should be fine for basic use.

And the OS? (unless your going to pirate or ???) You could do linux, but I wouldn't for a basic user. Its not popular, but going with your basic $250-300 OEM is the way to go.
