What laptop to choose?

Dear Hot dealers,

I am facing a conundrum that I hope you can help me solve.

I need to buy a laptop for my grandmother. She is using computer for skyping, and occasional media(youtube, audiobooks...). Currently she has an old DELL XPS moddel(before the i3/5/7 started). She says that it's slow and I can believe her.

My parameters are these:
15.6'' Full HD screen,
up to 600 pounds.

I am considering and SSD, but not sure if she will feel the difference.

These are the options I am currently considering, but please feel free to suggest alternatives and opinions.

Should we wait? Is it likely that the prices will be better some time soon?

Thank you in advance

Grab a refurb off ebay.
I would go for an ssd if budget permits it will boot up and down much quicker, and if she don’t need the extra space a mechanical gives you for the price then it’s worth it..
Plus from my experience so far they reliable no dead sectors slow downs etc

thanks!
Is here eyesight good enough for 1920x1080 on a 15.6" screen? A larger screen and/or lower resolution could well be preferable.
