    Hi there!

    This thread should be in the Laptops forum. I'll just tag AngryJellyfish to get this moved over there

      i have the acer chromebook 14, it is really slim + lightweight and there's quite alot of storage on here. it has a long battery life of about 10-14 hours (depending on the brightness you use). it was also relatively cheap, a little over £100. for alevels, i don't think which laptop you have is important to be honest... as long as you can store loads of past exam papers and worksheets on it, you should be good to go

      Budget? Lightweight with above average battery life is an expensive combination.

      It's because my bag is already full off folders and textbooks and its really heavy , si i wanted a good laptop that would be able to fit into my bag so I can use it during my frees and study sessions.

      Virtually nobody is making laptops at all for around £100, never mind a good one and certainly not a good and lightweight one. Closer to £200 will get you a crappy netbook with specs from 2012 that will be light but not good, while another £100 on top of that will get you something with a modern i3 processor that will be good but not light. The closest thing you'll find to what you want is a cheap Chromebook, the low resource OS will let it feel faster than its crummy specs would if you were running a full fat operating system like Windows and battery life will be better too. Most Chromebooks are also relatively small and light compared to cheap non-netbook windows laptops. The major downside is that the OS is essentially a glorified web browser that cannot install conventional applications, which may be a deal breaker depending on your uni course and the software you need for it.
