We use Del Latitude laptops at my office.
They have been very stable and reliable over the years.
They are Business class, so they run around $1300 and up.
Those of us at work that use Jaws have found 8 GB to be
plenty, but if you can get 12, why not.
I've not use an SSD drive, but I've heard they are great and
so much faster.
IF you do not plan to move the computer, stick with a
desktop. You can get more for your money.
I personally would never have a hybrid.
It seems that most computers have 1 TB drives these days.
If you go with Office 2016, the office 365 subscription also
gets you 1 TB of OneDrive space.
My wife, who is sighted, recently bought a Del Inspiron
laptop and loves it. It was only $480 with an I5 chip.
I would recommend the I7 chip for the tiny bit more
processing speed since you will be running JAWS.
When my Toshiba laptop dies, I will buy a Del.
I hope whatever you choose, you can find on sale today.

I must get a new PC. I am looking for suggestions for
one that will meet the best use criteria for speech. Is
8g ram enough or should I get 12? Should I get both SSD
and SETA frives? If I neeed SSD, how large should it be?
Generally, which would be the best brand? I know this is
a personal choice. I have had Dells for the last two
computers and am wondering if something else would be
better. I have Office 2007. Can I use 2007 on a win10
system or Should I get 2016? My current PC is almost 8
years old and is beginning to do some wierd stuff, so I
thought I had better take care of getting a new one before
this one gives up.
Finally, does anyone use a hybred and what do they
think of it. I know I do not want a notebook, so it must
be either a hybred, a decent laptop or another desktop.
Thanks for any suggestions. Oh yes, I would like to get
one on sale today, grin.
