I think many home users can make good use of older computers. Even if it's Win XP. Most people surf, email, facebook. A single core 2.4ghz Pent-4 will do just fine for average home use web surfing. In my opinion, unless you are using the latest heavy use software or video editing, there is no need to spend $600 for the kids to go on facebook or download a virus for you. The most problems I see are that users do not know how to keep systems organized and clean. I even get basic daily use from a athalon64 2.4mhz with XP and 2 gig of ram from 2005. That comes to about $60 per year.
