Lenovo Y40 Laptop 14-Inch

I'd go with the Lenovo Y40 Laptop 14-Inch.

Its battery life is over 6 hours and it's below your budget.

For some more suggestions check out the link below:

Best of luck,

Looked up the Y40 and it can barely get 6 hours in use.

I don't really care too much about gaming... I just need a good allrounder. People are telling me to get a mac... but *shudder* no. I just don't get macs...

So why not the Y40, Y50 or a CNET fav?
