The two things I spend money on are hardware and books. My 
current machine is a no os Systemax bought from Tiger Direct for 
less than $300. It has a dvd rw drive, a 250 gig sata drive, usb 
ports front and back. Chip id 32 bit dual core. I loaded Slack 13 on 
it.  Had to find and load sound drivers. My stepson with identical 
box just plugged in an old sound card instead.

The usb keyboard was not too good. The letters wore off the 
frequently used keys, and I had no keyboard at boot time for 
selecting partitions.

I resurrected an ancient  non-usb keyboard and plugged it in. 
Keyboard problems solved.
