Laptop choices


I am looking for a laptop for writing and what are the best brands/models for:

1) Screen brightness that can be turned way down, so that minimum brightness is very dim. Don't know if this is standard these days? Are some laptops more likely to have better brightness level control?

2) A quality light touch keyboard on the laptop for writing.

3) Is not an apple computer, but PC and Microsoft word.

For this you'll have to go shopping.

All the units on display at the shops let me try the screen controls. But I fear that you may have to get into an external display so for this setup, I have to suggest a desktop PC.

I suggest you go out to Best Buy and all the places

near you that sell computers and you see and touch them. That way you can see what you like then research for pricing at place like Newegg, Xoticpc, Amazon any other online. Then research by reading comments of people that purchased the models you like.

I think MSI and ASUS are very good brand. You should try here. Silly
