Puppy and this particular Comp

Hi, guys,

I am trying to decide whether to proceed or not with a praticular very low end computer.

Please have a look at the article

Is this one worthy to spend $120-170 to run Puppy?

Please let me know your thoughts because I am new to Linux.

The use of the computer will be predominantly for email, instant messenging, possibly Skype use, and very occasionaly emailing Office documents.

I will be waiting for your replies.

Thank you.
