Since weight is a concern I would recommend either the ThinkPad T450 mainly because ThinkPads are known for their great battery life, amazing build quality and very good keyboards and because it is very light at 3.8 lbs, also comes with Intel Core i5 5300U which is more than powerful enough for her usage, 500 GB of HDD for her storage (I think that is more than enough), 4GB of RAM and 15.6 inch screen, which is recommended size for work.

Or this HP Notebook 15-ay011nr because it comes with slightly more powerful CPU, double the ram, double the storage, better screen resolution, and cheaper, but it is also heavier at 4.7 lbs,
