My mother bought a new desktop PC in February 2013 and is very happy with it. The way she uses it sounds very similar to your description.

Lenovo ThinkCentre Edge 72 3484 (RCCDDUK)
Intel i5 Quad Core 2.9GHz processor

I don't know if this model is still available but Lenovo seems a good make.

She paid a total of c. 550 for the tower unit (inc 8GB of RAM) plus c. 155 for the purchase and installation of a 128GB Solid State Disk (SSD). Prices exclude monitor, mouse, keyboard.

The SSD was not strictly necessary but putting the operating system etc on a disk with no moving parts makes the system blisteringly quick (for a PC). She boots up "from cold" in 25 seconds and powers off in about 15. This compares to 2 or 3 minutes with my old Dell.

She opted for Windows 7 and sourced her MS Office suite separately but I guess it's usually better value to get software from the same provider.

Toggling between different applications is a doddle on Windows 7.

She used this co:

Good luck!
