They currently have an HP Pavillion G series 584037-001. It has Windows 7, so ancient like 11 years old. I don't think sticking an SSD and some more memory in will help.

Costco usually has good HP deals, but nothing is showing now.

Waiting for them to get back with me on size and if they need a full keyboard, but I am assuming they'd like a 15" and the number pad is optional.

yeah, whne I linked it, they hd a new for $450, but that's gone. For that budget, you're prbably going to have to go refurbished. Check out Microcenter dels.

No microcenters in Florida. Costco was having some great HP's in the $299-399 range. I bought two at $299 (14-df0023cl, i3-8130U, 4GB, 128GB SSD, 1920x1080 IPS, backlit keys and decent sound) that I added 4GB more ram, a 512TB NVMe to each, and a couple of real intel wifi cards I picked up for $10 each :). They were great for most things.
