I'd argue that's precisely why PCs aren't a silver bullet. I'm a fan of smart appliances for the same reason that your sister is not a fan of computers. Dedicated hardware just works. It does one thing, and it does it very well. PCs - or anything really - that try to do everything won't typically excel at them, and to the degree that they can, they are more complicated as a result, and they break. And even attempts to make them easier fail because as Douglas Adams lamented, "the problem with making something completely foolproof is people underestimate the ingenuity of complete fools"

So make things simpler. That's user centric. Your sister may be better served with a chromebook for browsing the web and several smart appliances like TVs for using things like netflix.
