Preferably a PC of a spec that was common 2-3 years ago, except perhaps with more RAM{**}.
The message being: you can run Linux/OpenOffice/... on the boxes that you
already have, no need to spend your previous cash on new hardware.

{**} 2-3 years ago a new desktop PC came with 64Mb RAM, you really need 128Mb to get
OpenOffice to work nicely - but RAM is cheap these days.
