Here's an ultrabook with a 1080p screen that is within your price range.

The CPU, RAM, and integrated GPU will be just fine for the kind of work your wife would do on it.

I just got this one at BestBuy today for $649.99 and I like it so far. 1920x1080 screen, Core i5, 6GB RAM, 750GB HDD, DVD burner, 10-key number pad, USB 3.0, etc. No touchscreen, but I don't need that and I'd just have to keep wiping it off.

I wouldn't call myself a gamer, but rather an explorer, artist and musician. I enjoy exploring worlds and stories created by such people, often found in games.
