Hello guys!

I am currently studying software development in my computer science university and I am looking for a budget laptop that will endure for sometime (let's say 5 years).

Needs:
-A good/relaxing screen since I am will be spending a lot of time per day. Propably a 15'.
-Portabillity (I have a Desktop in my home so the laptop will be mostly used in the university)
-A decent CPU and and an SSD(256Gb will be more than enough and it can be lower)

Not needed:
-I do not have any graphical intense needs so I believe that the integrated will be good
-I do not need an OS installed (and Ubuntu or some other linux distribution will be installed)

Budget:
-Let's say 500$ (-+ 100$) but I can be flexible if ther is no laptop that can cover my needs.

Sorry if I am being too vague with my needs but I do not know a lot of things about laptops.
If any other specifications are needed please ask me.

Thanks,
Mike
