Lightweight Laptop for MBA Student


Back to school!!
Hi Guys,

My 4 year old Dell Laptop is about to give up the ghost, the screen is showing lines, its gotten very slow and battery life is abysmal even after changing it. So I am looking to purchase a new laptop.

Overview of my Requirements: MBA student, no time to play games (No Graphics Card). Mostly work contains making ppts and a lot of excel, ms access, sql server, tableau, r, spss and other simulation/analytics software (CPU/RAM intensive). A lot of online research and creating reports (Screen and Keyboard). Have to carry the laptop to class 3/4 times a day (Weight and Screensize). Most of the time away from a charging point (Battery Life). The laptop will be moving a lot, so require a sturdy build. Free times spent by watching Movies, TV Shows etc on Netflix/Prime and streaming songs on Spotify. Require original windows.

In short, I require a business/office laptop with a good amount of processing power, long battery life, low weight and connectivity. Mac won't do. Require Windows 10 home preinstalled, no need for office as my institute provides the entire suit.
