I am in the market for a new laptop as I am currently using a 7 year old gateway laptop which has a dead battery now and think it's time to invest in a new one. I've been researching and have sort of come down to a specific set of features I want the laptop to have.

14" touchscreen (prefer high resolution but minimum 1080)
4th gen i5 (haswell)
Minimum 4GB of ram
Needs to be light (4 lbs or less?)
Good battery life (~6 hrs)

Prefer ASUS/Lenovo but open to other manufacturers

Mostly school work such as note taking, web browsing, programming (Java/C/C#)

OS doesn't matter since I have access to MSDNA

Prefer ultrabook design and size meaning I don't need a optical drive.

Budget is ~$700 and looking to purchase within the month and prefer to pick it up instore but if the shipping is free to Canada then I would be open to that too

Im open to suggestions since Ive been quite out of the loop with laptops as of late. Thanks in advance
