Just one that I can replace my old one with, portable would be nice though

One that could last more than an hour without running too many programs, Literally anything is better than what I'm using currently.

You are better off buying the following Lenovo laptop with a Core i3-6100u and Intel HD 520 graphics core for $312. The Core i3-6100u is more powerful than the low power quad core Pentium N3540. The Intel HD 520 graphics core is definitely more powerful than the Intel HD (Bay Trail) graphics core the Pentium N3540 has, but the Intel HD 520 is still not that powerful. It's only about equal to a nVidia 910m GPU.
