My budget is around $1000, but would be willing to go a bit higher. The size of the laptop/notebook is not too important. The primary uses of this laptop/notebook would be note taking for my classes, writing papers, creating/running a website/blog. I also need to be able to play league of legends. Since I am a college student I will be carrying the laptop from place to place so portability is a nice touch. I would like it to have a decent battery life, I will need it to last while I take notes/write papers. As for the OS I am not picky, I will get used to whatever I get. I would be buying this laptop as soon as possible because my current laptop is getting old. I would prefer this laptop to last at least 4 years, so I wouldn't have to purchase another during college. I am going to be majoring is business.
