Submission + - Ask Slashdot: Granny PC 1

TomDBrooklyn writes: Do folks here have any suggestions for a basic PC system or system configuration that you might put together for your grandmother? She should be able to surf, check email and do basic word processing without update pop-ups (Flash), aggressive and disruptive nag screens (Nuance) and email spam (Chase needs your SSN!). We take these all in stride, which is sad when you think about it, but unexpected computing interruptions for a senior will mean instant support calls to you. Most seniors I work with seem to own or have access to Windows XP based computers. Any thoughts?
