QuestionISO Entry level Laptop for (mostly) Word and Office stuff. PinmemberMaximilien7-Jul-14 15:42 
(buying in Canada/Québec)
 
GF is looking for a laptop; basic, usable laptop for mostly Office work; she already have a iPad for "entertainment".
 
All the tablets we looked at were running windows 8(.1) and some of them have tactile displays (useful ?)
 
I have to admit, I was completely lost at the stores today looking at the different lower-end CPUs!!
 
What is the lowest CPU I need to look at ? i3 or i5 ? what are the equivalent AMD cpus (Quad-Core A4-5000?) ?
 
I assume I need 8gig ram for Win8.1; HD size/speed is not really an issue.
 
Portability and battery life is not an issue.
 
The ACER Aspire series seems to be getting nice reviews in the $500-$600 price range.
The Lenovo Flexpad is also getting nice reviews.
 
Thanks.
 
Max.
I'd rather be phishing!
