    I am going to buy a separate lightweight laptop computer to run only the following programs quickbooks 2015, gmail, and word. What are the system requirements and which band is the lightest and fastest. Is there a tablet which can do this with a keyboard?

    The main thing to keep in mind is that you need to run full Windows to run QuickBooks 2015. A Surface Pro 3 is probably your best option for both lightweight and speed. I'd recommend the Core i5 128 GB version for your needs. There are less expensive alternatives but they are painfully slow running QuickBooks. In any case, be sure not to get a non-pro Surface as those run RT and will not run QuickBooks.

    There are also a bunch of other factors, where is the quickbooks data, space needed, USB ports for accessories (number pad), do you have to domain join. Dell, HP, etc, make lower cost, okay hybrids that should meet the needs. I think a surface is nice, but over priced for QB and web.
