If it were me and I was happy with my previous laptop I'd try to get the current version of it. Otherwise is sounds like any main brand laptop with an Intel i3 CPU and min. 4GB RAM would do . . then it's just what suits you best re weight, screen size & cost. Hard to go wrong really.
You can still buy a single user licence for MS office, which is better value if you plan to get a few years out of your laptop.
There is also the Google version (google docs / sheets etc) and open office, both of which are good and free if cost is an issue.
