Which laptop is best for school and travel purposes

Asked By 20 points N/A Posted on -


I am looking for a laptop for school and travel, so it has to be reasonably light weight and have a good battery life. I would also like a full sized keyboard and a track pad, not the eraser type thing if possible.

Lastly, I do not want anything that is made in China like: Dell, HP, Apple, Acer, or any other cheap brand out there, but may be inclined if it has all the features I am looking for.

Thanks for any help and all info is appreciated.

One of the lightest at 2.8 lbs, it has a 10.1 screen size and lasts up to 10.5 hours without a power adapter. It also has a full-sized 12-inch notebook style keyboard and a large touchpad. It has a robust slim line casing and is extremely portable. It costs $409.00 available in Best Buy stores.
