    Best laptop for college?

    Hey | ∞ | here. (Still have my post ban, thought it was only supposed to be a few days?)

    Anyways, college starts soon for me and I'm looking for a laptop that can fit my needs. I plan on having a major in computer science, most likely in the security field, or a business major. I need to find a laptop that will be ultra-portable (such as the MacBook Air) and can stay online for at least 6-8 hours without a charge. I'm not a big fan of the Mac OS ecosystem, but if I can't find a PC that fits my needs, I probably will get a MacBook Air.

    Specs are not very important to me as I will have a more powerful Windows laptop in my dorm at all times. It's just kind of bulky and I don't want to carry it around.

    Anyways, my price range is anything below $1500. Suggestions/links/testimonials would be appreciated.

    -Edit-
    No tablets/refurbished stuff

    "Religions are, by definition, metaphors, after all: God is a dream, a hope, a woman, an ironist, a father, a city, a house of many rooms, a watchmaker who left his prize chronometer in the desert, someone who loves you—even, perhaps, against all evidence, a celestial being whose only interest is to make sure your football team, army, business, or marriage thrives, prospers, and triumphs over all opposition. Religions are places to stand and look and act, vantage points from which to view the world. So none of this is happening. Such things could not occur. Never a word of it is literally true.”

    Chromebook if you want only school related and internet. Other than that, it is not even close to a gaming laptop.

    Functionality on a Chromebook is way too limited. And I'll have a gaming laptop in my dorm.

    I bought a Lenovo Z500 and it works wonders. I can play all games on decent settings, I can encode, decode and convert videos pretty quick. Overall, it's a versatile Laptop, so I'd suggest you buy it.
