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:


Note: The link at the site looks broken. Next time just post the model code to avoid dead ends like that.

Best of luck,

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?

Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly

Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
