^^ true dat

-or- you can check out the $big_box_store's budget systems and then make a knockoff with the same (or similar) kit and throw on a free linux distro for her needs. You get the pride of building it, guaranteed compatibility of the various parts, and no bloat.

-or- like was already said- just post your requirements and someone will offer help, custom-suited for you.
