I'd really like to be giving her a newer desktop junker but sadly I don't have one. 10 years ago it was easy to pick up a 6-7 year old desktop and in fact the one I got for Jean was exactly that old when I obtained it in 2012. Today if I see a desktop at all it's ready for the recycle bin.
Most folks have switched away from Desktops to laptops and even tablets so when something reaches its "end of life" now it is unlikely to be a desktop. The last two machines I recycled with Linux were laptops
I would love to get an early Core i5 or even Core i3 desktop machine for Jean but sadly it just doesn't appear to be possible. She doesn't need a laptop in a seniors home. But it isn't in the cards right now.
