That isn't a great explanation a really old computer can do the same. Be more specific about what you your minimum specs are you want.

If you budget allow you - i7, 4 cores. >8GB ram, better 16. And you will use iy for at least couple of years.

Pay attention to hardware if you want to run linux on it. Nvidia or Intel graphics work well. Atheros, Ralink, and Intel wireless work well although many others are supported. Avoid Broadcom wireless.

Not all name brands are linux friendly. I've heard some Asus machines are problematic. Dell is normally linux friendly. 

You must be able to disable "secure boot" via the bios to install and run linux in most cases.  Make sure this option exists.

Both HP and Dell are really good and serves well for long time. You can try one of it.

Hit the pawn shops.  You can usually find a computer for about half the price.  Just make sure they have not been abused too much.

I am currently typing this message on a Macbook Pro. I strongly suggest you do not make the same mistake I did. Go PC
