Default Newbie @ laptop

Interested in some ideas for buying a laptop. Not so much brand(s) but what to look for & what to avoid.
My wife will be the most frequent user. Will be using mostly in her home office but for leisure, not work. She simply doesn't want the bulk of a desktop (limited desk real estate). General computing: email, surf, word processing, etc. Some multimedia as well - watch online videos, view movies, play music/music videos. For size, would like to stay around 15-16 inches unless a larger screen is a must-have. While price is not the driving factor she wants something that can do the job without a lot of bells/whistles/eye candy. Would like some idea of how much power (ie cpu type & speed) is required and what sort of graphics ability.

Thanks
