+1 - and there are a range so you can go from the fairly cheap to a bit more pricy. Would suggest getting enough "RAM" (4G I suspect - others may have views).For that type of usage a Chromebook would be suitable. I recently purchased one from lenovo.com for my Dad who just needs docs/spreadsheets/surfing. It uses the google docs / sheets / etc so doesn't need office but it can open office docs so is compatible. The one I got for my Dad was the Chromebook S330 @ €225 but with a 10% discount. A couple of days later there was a 15% discount. There are usually some discount codes floating around at this time of year so worth keeping an eye out.
