    Excel is a program with very little system requirements. It will run on just about anything. It has both Windows and MAC versions. (In fact, Excel was released for the MAC one year before it became available for Windows.)

    What you want to look at other features like battery life, do you want a numberpad as part of the keypad, how large of a display you want, and whether it has a CD/DVD drive. If weight is an issue, you will need to check the weight of the models that interest you. Remember that the way they make models "lighter" is to drop things you would get in a "heaver" laptop.

    Dell makes a line of personal laptop (their Latitude line) and business laptops (their Optiplex line.) The business ones tend to have a sturdier case to stand up to be transported more often. And they usually have better system specs (more memory, better graphics, etc.). But they usually cost 25-50% more than the personal line.

    But 90% of the hardware used in ALL laptops is made by the same tiny handful of companies. There is not enough difference between them to matter most of the time. (The one exception is the Apple line which produces all its own hardware and software.)

    uh, any computer can do that.

    just be sure to avoid Celeron, Sempron, Turion and Atom processors.

    Any of them. Have you never used a computer in your life before?
