What is the Best value budget word processing/web surfing desktop?

I'm looking for a value buy on a budget desktop for my mother who is a writer. I dont know much about the budget pc market and with all the info and options im finding im getting a little frustrated. The uses for the machine would basically be limited to word processing, web surfing, and non demanding writing specific programs. I have ruled out the chrome OS for her, macs are not budget computers, so that leaves desktops as she hates Laptops. From what im seeing i could go as cheap as a refurbished Dell Optiplex 745 Desktop but it just seems like it would be out dated like next week. Basically im looking for the best options in the very low end Desktop market that will be viable for the most basic computer functions of word processing and web browsing for at least the next 2 years
