  1. Out of your 3 initial candidates, the Dell seems like the nicest to me.  However, if she won't be playing games or editing video, I think the discreet graphics card is just going to add unnecessary weight and cost to the laptop.

    The i7s are also not worth the additional cost in my opinion.  A quad-core i5 (i5-8???U) should be good enough.

    Other features I'd want in a laptop:
    SSD
    at least 8GB of memory
    FHD (1080p) screen (IPS and touch are also nice to have)
    good port selection (both USB-A ports and USB-C)
    good build quality

    Lenovo Yogas usually get decent reviews, so I'd consider those as well.  I have a Dell Latitude 7390 2-in-1, which uses a Yoga-style hinge, and it's sometimes useful for watching video, etc.

    The new Utopias are way brighter than the pair Tyll reviewed....

    Somebody (kais in the comment section) pointed out that headphone positioning makes a huge difference for the Utopia.  You can see this in the raw frequency response plots of Tyll's original Utopia measurements.  The effect is so big, it might(?) even explain the difference between the old and new measurements.  :blink:
