Red face I badly need a laptop for College!

I don't want to have to spend money but one would be so usefull.

I've never bought a lappy before so I need advice on what types to look at.

My main uses:

M$ Office
Music (+maybe a few movies)
Internet browsing
Long battery life
Largeish palm rest as my hands are quite big
At least 2 USB docks so I can constantly use a usb mouse.
Lightweight and not too bulky.


That's all I can think of needing it for. My budget is about 300-350 EUROS ($400-450 USD)



I was told Lenovo and ASUS are good starters.
I was told 15" is too big/heavy to carry around campus all day.
I was told below 13" is too small as will wreck my eyes.

Nice but wouldn't 15.6" be a motherfrigger to lug around campus all day in my backpack?


Edit: thanks btw.

15 is perfect, 17 is too big
if possible you want removable batteries so you can carry a spare(yes this can be an issue)
is a disc player important? many come without now, so look at that carefully.

also, I recently purchased one that was wireless only ffs
make sure it has an Ethernet port or you'll be buying an adapter ?(which by btw will bottleneck down to usb speed.

do you really need office? and is that included in those funds?
something open source from the interweb will save you about 125. American


there is a really good sale at Lenovo till the 7th if you're ready to buy now.

For transport I would recommend a 12-13.3 inch. I own a 14" and a 12" laptop and the 12" is so much easier for traveling, the 14" is more like a desktop. Also owned 11.6" but found anything under 12" screen a bit to small. I think a 13.3 is almost perfect.

These are all over budget unless you find a steal out there:
Lenovo U31 ($600 but nice specs) http://shop.lenovo.com/us/en/laptops.../u-series/u31/
Levano Yoga 3
ASUS Zenbook
Surface Pro 3

By the way the euro is twelve cent over a dollar.. It might as well be 1:1 unless we're talking real capital..
