Question of the day. I am in the market for a new laptop. Which one do you recommend? I do NOT stream movies, nor music. I do NOT play games (not even Solitaire). I do use it with: Facebook, my website & blog (along with the ones for the business), Microsoft Office, Ancestry / genealogy, Quickbooks, TONS of pictures, and such. The one I am using is my 4th laptop. Before, I have simply made the purchase based on what was available when I walked into the store. This time? I would like to pay for what I am going to use, have enough RAM & GB to do what I need/want to do, but not have to pay for the features that I will never in a gajillion years use. Fingers crossed that there is a laptop guru lurking around

So the Inspiron 15” 5000 (5579) 2-in-1 is very late model laptop with nearly all the features listed above.
Inspiron 13” 5000 (5379) 2-in-1 basically the same thing with Windows Pro.
No SSD: Inspiron 15” 3000 (3567)
If those are too much we can look at used laptops on newegg and amazon. After that, whatever is available at your local store. I would recommend anything with an Intel i5 and at least 8GB of RAM. Most computers will have at least a 1TB hard drive these days.
