Need help picking a laptop! Budget 500-800$- it's for my wife

#1VoelgerPosted 9/1/2013 6:35:20 AM
I have a gaming laptop- look at my sig, but I have no idea what brand to get my wife for what she needs it for!

I need something snappy with Internet exploring, and well made. She has always been a MacBook girl but we don't have 1400$ to spend and a MacBook Air doesn't have the hard drive space.

Our budget is 500-800$

We would like
1080p- but not a must
Good wifi capabilities
Durable but light and fashionable- she likes her MacBook

Any recommendations? What are the good brands?

I'm thinking the HP Envy Sleekbook or the Acer Aspire M5

We have one- she needs it for work- she got a job where she works from home researching hi-Rez photos to go into TD Banks. They must be historical photos that are within a few miles of the bank.

This involves a lot of web surfing

How's this?

If you need a zip code, just use something stupid like 90210, It's pretty nice for it's price, aside the fact there's only 4GB of Ram, which is easily changeable.

I love my ipad- but working on a ipad with a keyboard is not what I call ideal! She needs something that can run photoshop, and she needs a mouse/ touchpad
