New pc needed for mum

Hi all

I'm looking for a new pc or at least tower for my mum as her old one has seen better days and is very old itself.

She will need it basically for internet email Word Excel and not a great deal more.

However she is used to Windows Vista so don't think she'd like the new Windows.

Any recommendations on how to start searching for a reliable desktop or tower please?

Many thanks

Windows 7 is quite similar to Vista, so a PC with that OS should be fine for your Mum.

This one form ebuyer should be suitable. It has decent reviews too:

This Dell at Argos also has Windows 7:

I agree with previous poster, plenty to chose from all you need is Win & as an Operating system and and office program either NS office - home and student or Libra Offic (free) will handle Word and Excel.

Win & = win7 you might also consider a screen if she is using an old CRT type.
