    The most important question is what your budget will be and whether you will need or want stuff like a DVD drive (since a lot of slim laptops don't have have one anymore). For your needs you don't need anything expensive, but a little extra money ($100-$200) will affect things like how light it is and what storage capacity it has. I personally like ASUS' products quite a lot. Good balance between quality and price, and if you treat them well they last a while. Acer is more value-oriented. Cheap stuff, but bulkier, more plastic, less durable. Not to say they're bad, they just look and feel cheaper.

    I have an older version of this at home: It is a great laptop, plenty powerful for home office use but lightweight and easy to carry if you travel for work. Downside is the thin-and-light aspect make it cost more, and it doesn't have a DVD drive since few people use them these days.

    This one is a bit larger, but it has a 10-key, which matters if you do stuff involving Excel or data entry. Upside is it's a bit cheaper due to using a traditional platter drive, which will make it boot slower than you might be used to if your existing PC has an SSD.

    And if price is your main concern, then this is my suggestion: This is the laptop equivalent of a '98 Honda Civic. It ain't fast, it ain't sexy, but it will get you from point A to point B as good as anything else.

    For an office software, I suggest using LibreOffice. It's a free, open-source office suite that is fully compatible with MS Office documents. I actually prefer it to new versions of Office since it doesn't do all the stupid hide-the-menu sh*t that Office 2016 does.
