Hi, there.

I had a Lenovo X220, which weighs somewhat light (3.3lbs or 1.5kg), and somewhat small (12.5", 2.5cm thickness). Since my brother would be using it, I need another one.
Any recommendations for a good laptop that weighs around the X220 (or even lighter)? I don't mind the screen size, as long as it's under 17" and above 11". My budget can't go far from $700...
Not expecting much, but still wishing I could play some games on it (no worries, I only play Rocket League on lowest settings).

Any ideas?
Thanks before!

If you do not mind a refurbished laptop, then there is the 12.5" Dell Latitude 5000 E5270 Ultrabook with a Core i5-6200u and the Intel HD 520 graphic core which is a lot better than the Intel HD 3000 graphics core in the ThinkPad X220. It also has a 1080p screen. It sells for $530.

Another option is the 13.3" HP Pavilion 13-s128nr x360 Convertible laptop for $680. Slightly bigger and heavier than the X220. It also has a Core i5-6200u and a 1080p screen. Plus it is also a convertible. However, it only has a 128GB SSD which you may find restrictive.
