The whole machine is roasted? All of it? Every single bit? Seriously?
I think the rest of what you mentioned you should be careful about.
*Only* needing a browser is quite a statement. I predict phone calls to
you like "I can't open this attachment", think pdf, zip, important .doc
file from someone. It's easy to say a person just does basic web and
email on their computer, but there are usually many other underlying
needs as well. And are you sure the machine is completely fried? You
can't just get a new <insert computer component here>? However, you
know her, I don't. Just spouting off.
