Laptop Search

I am a Computer System Engineer having hard time picking the best laptop for my wife. Ok here are my wife computer activities:
  1. Everyday internet connection may be 10 hours at average.
  2. Microsoft Excel and Word.
  3. Average HDD size. Just for the Excel and Word files that she will accumulate as time goes by.
Laptop brand of my choice.
  1. Dell, our official laptop choice, latitude series.
  2. Lenovo, this is my personal choice.
  3. Asus, I don’t have experience using this brand but I read many good reviews about it.

Prices differences are really negligible.

Here is the twist, this laptop should be for my wife alone but I cannot resist the temptation that I can experiment windows 7 on it so Windows Driver Support is really a big thing for me.

So what do you suggest!?
Thanks a lot.
