I'm currently looking at this http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16834298768 (from the Dell website though, as Free shipping)

Also the left Shift key should not be narrow like on some laptops, that is a deal breaker. And Fn to the left of Ctrl is also a deal breaker.

Hi, the weight at 1.6 kg is acceptable (would have preferred lower but this has an i7), however, the reviews I found of the Ideapad series mention poor battery life. I did not find any reviews for this exact version, and neither can I find this exact model on Lenovo's website. If you can give me some links that would be great.
