Its quite a powerfull machine for buisness use, normally you just use 700MHZ machines with lots of ram, cheap and still fast, or does she do gaming as well?? Surely all her programs can run on a less powerfull machine...

You can pick up 50 machines on ebay with monitor, mouse keyboard, for $300, then all you have to do is buy the wireless keyboard/mouse...

We use 400MHZ pc's for CAD/CAM and they do fine.... well nearly. RAM is very important, but they are still fast.

Are you going to have any servers, networking stuff going on???

Ok, i would just go for 700MHZ machines like my buisness has, works well for us. As long as you have lots of ram it will be fine, and very fast, and will save you lots of money!!!
