My opinion? An iMac (I would consider refurbed unless the specs do not meet your needs to save costs) and a Mini iPad would work perfectly fine. I cannot see why you would need two iPads unless sharing is an issue. If she is only web browsing and listening to music, a mini would be fine IMHO.

What about getting the iPad mini with a bluetooth keyboard. That way she doesn't have the excuse to use your iMac for a "real keyboard".
