Best hybrid Solar/Wind off-grid system ???

Dear Friends:

Im newbie in this field.
I should use a laptop 10 hours/day + 2 x 5w lights 4 hours a day.
My cabin is on a mountain top in Sri Lanka with plenty of
both wind and sun. Sometimes forceful tropical rain-storms!

Q1: What hybrid Solar/Wind system is then best here?
    (price ~ 3000-6000 US$)

Q2: Can one still draw 12 volts from a 48 Volts system?

Q3: Which batteries are best for off-grid Solar/Wind system?

Many thanx in advance.
