> My computer is 10 years old

In the last 10 years, better power usage was one of the biggest 
pursuits. A new inexpensive computer will actually cost you *less* than 
sticking with the old hardware (due to your power bill.)

Because you obviously don't live on the bleeding edge and have little 
existing knowledge of Linux, I would suggest just getting a Chrome OS 
device. They run Linux, they are under $200, they have the latest 
hardware, and they just work.
