Help selecting new tower

I need to replace an older pc that is giving me issues and need recommendations on a inexpensive tower.  This pc is used for very basic use - mostly Internet and email.  I have a monitor so just want to purchase the tower. I have looked at towers available at local stores - both we're under $450 --  was not sure about the processor - one was an AMD E1-1500 (HP) and the other was a core i3-3240 (Lenovo) any recommendations you have would be appreciated.  Thank you.

I use and recommend Lenovo without hesitation. Also, an Intel i3 CPU is likely to be faster than an AMD processor even for small jobs.

I just ordered a Lenovo E3 for a client and it comes with a 3 year onsite warranty, so check warranty as well.

Anything with an i3 or i5 will be plenty for your basic use.   I agree with thinkpads that Lenovo's are good choices.
