You are not going to find a laptop with a 1080p screen in your price range. Refurbished laptops with that resolution screen typically starts at $700 or so. A 17.3" laptop with a 1600x900 resolution screen is within your budget.

With such a low budget you will need to buy a laptop with integrated graphics. To cut to the chase the best laptop I can recommend is actually a little over your budget.

17.3" HP Pavilion 17-e100 17-e188nr for $644. It has a red case.

Typically, the larger the laptop, the shorter the battery life. I think at best you will get about 3.5 to 4 hours with this laptop.
