In your budget you are very limited in what you can do for games, especially to get to 6 hour battery life.

Since you already know what CPU you want, just do a search on where you plan on buying the thing for models with that CPU. A8 or maybe even an A10 CPU should be doable in your price range. Since you have a lower budget don't expect to have a good quality screen or lots of RAM in the system, and just about all brands will have the same quality build in that price range. In general, ASUS and Lenovo are the top ones, followed closely by Dell and HP, then Toshiba and Acer.
