What is the cheapest option for using internet in France without one's own PC - i.e., internet cafés, etc.?

My sister spends a lot of her time in France. She used to keep in touch with all the family via email, but now tells me the prices in internet cafés have become prohibitive, and she writes less and less. She doesn't own a PC, so wi-fi is (at present) not an option. Paris and Rouen, in case that's relevant, although other locations happen. Does any France-based MeFite have a helpful suggestion for cheaper access?
Bonus question: if I were to persuade her to invest in a second-hand laptop, are there any good wi-fi deals to look for which would allow her to use in short bursts over a longer period without the risk of the contract running out before she's used all the access she paid for?
