My current laptop is 4 years old, heavy, 15" (not compact enough to carry around), and it's a mac, not that I have anything against Apple or anything, but I prefer Windows. I'm still in high school, and I need my laptop for most of my classes, so I need something lighter.

I'm looking for a new laptop. I've been considering the Asus Zenbook UX305FA, reviews are amazing, great price, looks great, and it runs on Windows, but I'm wondering if there is a better laptop for this price range.

Help!
The laptop must be:
-Not heavy
-11" or 13" (11" is what I prefer)
-1080p at least (IPS would be nice, but not a must)
-SSD (at least 128GB)
-8GB RAM
-NON-touch (if possible)
-Black or Silver
-Matte display (if possible)
-Any CPU (taking notes and presentations does not require a powerful CPU)
-6hr battery life (at least)
-USB 3.0
-Windows 10/8.1 free upgrade to 10 (MUST)
-Under $1k (MUST)
-Fanless (MUST)

Any answer will be appreciated :)

It doesn't solve your heavy problem, but can always run bootcamp on a Mac to get the Windows part taken care of. If you haven't already, I'd put a new SSD in it first and download El Capitan, then go through the bootcamp process.

I tried bootcamp, Win 7, 8, 8.1. I noticed a significant decrease in speed, I don't know why, and some of my friends experienced it too. Adding an SSD would be nice, but the 15" (sorry for not mentioning it earlier) display is just not compact enough to carry around from class to class.
