    Hello fellow Windows users! I need some suggestions for a laptop to gift my wife for the commercialized day of Valentine's Day. She has had a MacBook Pro (Retina, 15-inch, Mid 2012), then a Surface Pro 3, and now some budget Asus Laptop (she hates it). We only downgraded because she no longer needed a laptop for her job, and thought a machine for just browsing would suffice. However, she was used to the speed of her SP3 and loved the touchscreen.

    Here are her requirements:
    • Good build quality
    • Touchscreen
    • Windows 10 (obviously)
    • 15 inch+ screen size
    • Good battery life (enough to get through a workday)
    • Core i5 or higher
    • Traditional or Convertible form factors
    • Preferably less than $900

    Looking forward to getting some help here.

    What else does she do besides browse the web?

    Why touch? Is inking important?

    Photo/Video editing?

    If we had a bit more use scenario to go on that would help.

    For some reason I'm already thinking a GPU with dedicated RAM might be called for as well as built in pen support... Tell me if I'm wrong.

    FWIW, B&H Photo has a great selector if you tick off the criteria by category in the left sidebar. Also competitive pricing and GREAT customer service. You sound like you are looking at the Work style laptops (Creative category gets pricey really fast).

    Yeah you're right. She is the creative type and originally wanted Surface Studio. I'll give B&H Photo a gander. Thanks.
