Looks like similar deals to this were cheaper in the past but this is 280 right now and you can return in 14 days.

Acer A315-51-380T 15.6" , 7th Gen Intel Core i3-7100U, 4GB DDR4, 1TB HDD, Windows 10 Home

Advantages is the intel 620 gpu is good for 4k content. The 7th gen processor uses a bit less electricity than the 6th gen abd is a bit faster. 8th gen would be great but for what your parents will do (based on the post) it should be more than enough for years to come. I am not bothering with looking for 8th gen for my mom but want to give her a little more performance than the pentium if I can and I would stick away from the celeron line.

Acers should be easy to upgrade with a panel to open underneath. The best upgrade would be a cheap 128gb ssd. That should run less than $50 and will handle any complaints of slowness from your parents (if they come up).

Just my opinion, hope it helps.
