Is this computer halfway decent for my mom?
It's for her birthday. She has a crappy desktop put together by a couple of my uncles who think they know what they are doing but really don't. It's always freezing on YouTube and almost any other video. She doesn't play games, watch or download movies or music. Mostly she plays solitaire and...
I would think it is good enough; likely video card driver was not installed.
Microsoft claims 2 Gb of RAM are the minimum to operate Windows 10. I would recommend you upgrade the RAM if possible, but it should work for what you say she'll use it for.
If her main thing will be watching video, then you need to concentrate on the details of video card/ built in graphics it has. I have a computer specifically for that, and 4gb ram is fine. Speed of the processor is OK too. The one thing I would recommend to improve the resolution on you tube (and other video content) is to get the highest quality of video card you can afford.
