QuestionISO Entry level Laptop for (mostly) Word and Office stuff. Pin

(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!
