It's modern. And it's still pretty simple to use.
That is, assuming your bad experience is coming from using windows-8, which is understandable as it's interface is just plain horror.
Oh and you can still find some PC's that come with 7 online such as newegg.com

I would second this. Buy Windows 7 64-bit pro, and make it look like Win 2000, if that's the look you like. It's fast, stable, and I have had zero
problems with it. The computer industry is my living. 7 is the best thing Microsoft has ever done. Windows 8 is the worst thing they have ever done,
An additional thought. Pull the original hard drive from that laptop, and store it. Replace it with a 256GB solid state drive, and that machine will
be unbelievably fast and efficient. Just be sure and turn scheduled defragmenting off.
