5. How much battery life do you need? 7-8hrs

6. Do you want to play games with your laptop? If so then please list the games that you want to with the settings that you want for these games. (Low,Medium or High)? N/A

7. What other tasks do you want to do with your laptop? (Photo/Video editing, Etc.) Microsoft Office Suite, Internet Browsing

8. How much storage (Hard Drive capacity) do you need? Not much. But upgrade ability would be nice.

11. What kind of Optical drive do you need? DVD ROM/Writer,Bluray ROM/Writer,Etc ? N/A

12. Please tell us about the brands that you prefer to buy from them and the brands that you don't like and explain the reasons. N/A

14. Please tell us any additional information if needed. She wants this for work/productivity more than anything else. Portability and lightweight are key. A good keyboard would be nice.

* Not necessarily looking for a specific recommendation as much as input on what to look for in a laptop for this purpose.

While I keep up to date with high end and gaming focused hardware (most recent build, for my brother, was in April 2020), I don't know much at all about work/productivity style laptops. I appreciate any and all input on help deciding what to get.
