So, my mom needs a new computer. I just finished my first build over the weekend and nothing wrong happened, but now I am being called for another build. I need one for my mom. All she will do on it will be e-mailing and surfing the web every now and then. Since I just finished my first build, I am not to familiar with the parts. I need some help finding the right computer for her and possibly under 600$. Again, it wil be used daily, but for very simple things.

Thanks!

Why would you think the op meant $60 for the cpu that makes no sense :heink:  I did think the op probably meant $600 I was just waiting for the op to confirm that.
