Question

Lightweight college laptop?

My current Dell laptop is five years old next week! And its physically falling apart. We had a good run, but its time for it to go. I'm not particularly knowledgeable with laptops, so I just wanted to know if there were any recommendations.

What I need:
-Lightweight. I'm a small person. My current laptop is 6 lbs, which for me is really heavy. 4lbs? would be lovely.
-Light gaming. I play random MMO's... LoL... just decent fps.
-Basic college stuff. Decent battery life.
-Budget: $400-600

I have a lot of laptops I'm looking at on newegg which would be great, but they're all ~5.75lbs. I can't find anything as light as I would like. If anything, I'll settle for them :/
