    Consider Lenovo. Good quality, not expensive. (I have no relationship with them except as a satisfied user).
    Lenovo is good as long as you get something commercial, such as the ThinkPad series and not the IdeaPad which is consumer grade crap. I worked at a computer repair store for some time and we saw more consumer grade crap from all brands come in for broken hinges, power connectors, USB ports, etc. Anything we sold was commercial grade, so Lattitudes (our biggest by far), Precisions, ThinkPads. Never had any come back in for any of that.

    For clarity, the Lenovo ThinkPads are considered business class PC's - ThinkPad & ThinkCentre PCs

    That said, because I have one, I'll +1 for the Lenovo ThinkPad line as well. Solidly built with great performance. However, if you're into aesthetics, they might not please you there. But again, they do perform.

    That's what I was thinking.

    This whole thread can be summarised as follows:

    32 bit pcs can only run 32 bit programs

    64 bit pcs can run both

    Apart from some tablets/hybrids, every new PC is 64 bit (and mostly UEFI).

    You only need 64bit Office for special cases, which most mere mortals never encounter.

    THE END.
