If you just want something to play with, I would check e-bay for an HP 8510W. I have an 8510P and an 8510W that work fine for websurfing, although I have upgraded mine to 4 GB of RAM. They use DDR2 RAM.
There is a listing on ebay including Win XP and office 2007, for $49.95 plus $14.15 shipping (at least to my zipcode) they are T7500 Core 2 duo running 800 MHz with 2 gig of ram. You have to look at the pictures to see the spec.
The 8510P and W have a card reader and an HDMI port. The HDMI ports went away on the later models in favor of display ports.
If you are looking for a more upscale machine you might consider the 8560W. I have one at work. With a docking station and active display port to DVI adapters you can run 4 monitors (I am using the laptop screen, the VGA output on the docking station and two display ports on the dock). The 8440W/8740W units will only run two displays at the same time.
