Can anyone recommend me a laptop?

I've never bought myself a laptop before and I want to buy one, but I don't know which to get.
My budget it around £200 ($300) and here are some things I'm looking for, in order of importance...
• A windows laptop
• Lots of storage (at least around 200 GB)
• Thin and lightweight
• Long battery life
• Quiet
• 11" - 14" screen size

It will only be me using the laptop as well!
Thank you!
