Default Friend's Wife looking for Laptop

So a friend of mine was looking around the internet for a new laptop for his wife.

This is the laptop they were going to buy but it went out of stock:
Acer Laptop Aspire E5-573G-59C3 Intel Core i5 5200U (2.20GHz) 8GB Memory 1TB HDD 8GB SSD NVIDIA GeForce 940M 15.6" Windows 8.1 -

He said her needs are pretty simple such as:
Adobe Editor stuff
Making Powerpoints
A little graphic design for class
She plays The Sims sometimes.

They're looking for a good deal, but also something built to last a while. So decent CPU speed, probably 8GB of RAM, they said HDD space isn't a huge issue because they can use an external hard drive.

But if you could find something really close to the link above and let me know what you find I would definitely appreciate it!

For those tasks I'd put a little more emphasis on the GPU and adding a dedicated SSD.

If it's within their budget, something along the lines of this ASUS notebook.
