Raspberry Pi For All
Note: it's a little tough to get a Raspberry Pi right now because of supply chain issues. But keep trying.
You can now put together a complete great small computer for $161 (see below). You probably already have a keyboard, mouse and display, so the total price would be about $65.
This computer is great for everyone because it runs Linux (the world's most widely used operating system). You can get a job.
These are current Amazon items/prices but you can purchase from anywhere. Does not include possible tax and shipping.

What general tasks might you expect from a standard desktop?
Word processing and spreadsheets
All these features are available via the Raspberry Pi’s default operating system, Raspbian Stretch. With the right set up and a focus on productivity, using the little computer for day-to-day work should be achievable. #tomfitzgibbon
