What would people recommend for a moderate cost bitcoin client machine now?
This would only be used for a secure bitcoin wallet/client.  No mining, not a general PC, not even web surfing, probably mostly kept turned off.

I was thinking a cheaper laptop that didn't have wireless (if that's possible to find) that runs ubuntu?
Or, maybe a mac laptop?
Or, maybe an old PC/laptop that I reinstall with ubuntu, or is there a better OS to use?
Or, some kind of linux off USB with a persistence file?
Or, some more specialized hardware device that I don't know about?

Does anyone have something setup that they really like for this purpose?

Well Trezors are really the thing now with the best Bitcoin Wallets. I'd check that out if I were you. It does cost $100 though - but for users holding larger amounts of Bitcoins that could be a worthy investment. Hardware has really come a long way with these wallets.

Yes, I would agree with this. If you only need a Bitcoin wallet then there's no need to buy a whole machine.

If u want buy something dedicated for bitcoin wallet, there are Trezor like hardware "pendrives" that are virus/trojan proof and its secure way to spend/store bitcoins.
Trezor is most known and quite expensive, there is couple cheaper alternatives.

Trezor is $100 Ledger Nano S is $60. If you have more than one bitcoin you really should use one of them.

since you want to spend money for it then you can buy a hardware wallet. but if you want to run a bitcoin client like a full node and also contribute to the bitcoin network then you can run core but then you say it is mostly off!

if you don't want to spend money then a live linux on a USB is good enough, and that is what i use but i have disabled the network so there is never an internet connection.
