How true.

It used to be that a system with 2GB of RAM was fine for "just email and browsing the web" and you could recommend one of those to grandma.

These days, for grandma, "browsing the web" means Facebook, and with its infinite scrolling (where more and more crap on a page gets loaded without ever letting go), it's basically unusable. Facebook is horrible and should die in a fire for many, many reasons, but even from a page design perspective, it's simply appalling because it'll make one of those machines crawl for minutes on end.
