Focus on the following numbers: for text documents, 2-4 GB of RAM is enough, for creative works with graphics - from 8 GB. In the second case, the hard drive is also better to take more.

The battery life (from the battery, without connecting to the network). It is important only if you use a laptop "on the road", for example, at customers or in transport.
