I was looking for a laptop with a FHD screen for under $700.
My uses for it are for watching anime and playing visual novels which do not require a discrete iGPU and I will occasionally do personal photoshop use.

It's essentially sedentary so the weight and the 4-cell battery is not a deal breaker for me.

I found the following through my corporate perks discount.

Lenovo Z50
Processor Intel Core i7-4510U Processor
Operating system Windows 8.1 64
Graphics Intel® HD Graphics 4400
Memory 4.0GB PC3-12800 DDR3L SDRAM 1600 MHz
Display 15.6" FHD LED AntiGlare (1920x1080)
Hard Drive Hybrid 500GB 5400 RPM+8GB SSHD
Optical Drive DVD Recordable (Dual Layer)
Battery 4 Cell 32 Watt Hour Lithium-Ion
Bluetooth Bluetooth Version 4.0
Total is $579 + 6.5% tax - 10% CB from Discover

I'm in the dark regarding Lenovo screen quality and build quality.

I would rather go with the ASUS Flip 15.6" 2-in-1 Core i5 Touchscreen Laptop

That is a great deal!
Regarding spec I would rahter go with the 8GB of RAM now also in a discount for $619 (and FS).
Most probably you could get another discount with your corporate perks discount.
