My mom currently has a Dell Vostro 1400 with 1GB RAM and still running XP. I was thinking about upgrading her to an SSD, 4GB of RAM, and Windows 8.1. The only downside I'm seeing is that it is 7 years old and is only SATA 1 and DDR2. Those two upgrades would put her at about $100, but I'm thinking her laptop may not last long and she would end up having to buy a new one anyway.
I'm currently looking at a Baytrail from ASUS since they currently are going for about $300 on newegg with 4GB RAM and Win 8 64-bit. She only uses her laptop a couple times a month and then for doing her taxes when the time comes. What do you guys think about the Baytrails?
This is the one I'm thinking she should get.
