A bit over your budget, but the £610 model of this Lenovo Ideapad 5 would be your best bet as it has a good CPU, good screen(for the price), decent battery life and is supposedly quite light at reviewers saying it is 1.4kgs. If that's not an option(either it's too expensive or would take too long to come, I'd advise in favour of this HP, which is almost as good as the Ideapad, though it has a somewhat dimmer screen and a weaker processor(which will be more than enough for what you've stated your needs are).

Those laptops that you've researched would be poor for your requirements. They have those grey coloured glossy keyboard keys that are like typing on warm ice.

Business laptops from Dell, HP and Lenovo have much better keyboards for typing assignments on.

For a 15.6" laptop a Dell 5570 business laptop from ebay for £200 ish would be a good choice.

Are you sure you want a 15.6" laptop? If you are built like a rugby prop forward it would be a fine choice. If you are of daintier build, a laptop that big is a big / heavy / slabby thing to carry around campus.

A 14" inch premium business laptop like the Dell Latitude E7470 for £230 ish from ebay would be a great choice for your computing needs. With the spare money from your budget you could buy a nice brand new £200 32" monitor to use at home / your student digs.

You don't need the latest CPU, for your laptop to be lightning fast for your computing needs. All you need is an SSD hard drive, which can be bought for £35 if whatever laptop you buy doesn't have one already.
