I mean no disrespect, and I certainly cannot tell you what to do with money. BUT-
with such minimal equipment, you cannot possibly run much of the new stuff in apps and on web sites.
You could go to a major big box store with computers, even Walmart, put on a blindfold and throw a dart and hit something for smallish dollars that would bring you up to date. I do not recommend this as a way to buy a computer, but you are now in a crippled state, where the world has passed you by.
You need at a minimum, in Windows, for that is all I know, WinXP SP2; a modern CPU by Intel or AMD running somewhere around 2 gigs; if WinXP SP2, then 1 gig DRAM, if Vista, then 2 gigs DRAM, USB 2.0 ports; DVD writer (will also do CD's).
In Mac, Antony of one of the other Mac users can give you some minimal specs.
I know that Dell sells repo's and other un-new equipment at very reduced dollars on their web site, maybe others do also.
