Hello everyone, hope you're all doing well. I am about to start college in about two and a half weeks so I need to get a new laptop for my college work. I am lost among the vast options of all laptops and need a recommendation for a few decent pieces of hardware. My main requirements are: windows 10 os, 8gb ram, 1tb hdd, full HD 1080p, decent enough processor that it doesn't frequently lag, light to medium weight with a screen size of 13-15 inches and it's not make or break but a touch screen would also be nice. My budget is $800 (flexible) and I also need something with at least 4 hours battery life. Furthermore I do not want a graphics card since I already have a gaming PC and will not be gaming on this laptop. I will only be using this laptop for college work (nothing taxing like animation), web browsing, watching movies, and streaming songs and videos. Aux port is also a must have and Bluetooth would be nice but not necessary.
I would appreciate any and all recommendations on what to get, even if they go a bit over my budget. Thanks in advance!
PS. I've tried to be as clear on my requirements as possible, but if I've left out something or been a bit vague then feel free to ask me!

Honestly this seems like a great option, but would you have any recommendations with touch screen included? Also, I tried that on Newegg but I thought I might also ask for some personalized recommendations from someone

Here is one with all your specs but with no ssd:

https://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=9SIAE4N7ER5399&ignorebbr=1

This is a little above your price range:

This one is perfect for you, but there are no reviews so I can't tell if it is a good laptop.

Another suggestion I would say is find a computer with all your specs with only an SSD in it, but make sure it is expandable for you to put in a 1TB hdd
