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?
