Default I need a CHEAP computer...

I am looking for a BASIC, BASIC computer. It is for my grandma and she only uses it for things like basic internet browsing. She is only wanting to spend $200 on it, and I can't seem to find anything for less than $300. Any and all help is appreciated. THANKS!

Check craigslist and your local paper. Heck, I would check the local pawn shops right about now, just after Christmas and all... you won't find high-end, but you should find what you granny needs.

A second-hand laptop and a decent external keyboard/mouse might do the trick.
