I'm not going to be gaming but I'll be watching a movie or show once in a while, but battery life is an important aspect. So what do you guys suggest I get? I'll also post some local laptops asking if they're good. Thanks for the help, gotta get back to studying for finals.

If you can stretch your budget to $700, a NEW X230 laptop, with an IPS screen can be had. If you're looking for battery life, I would go for new. Batteries degrade over time, and used batteries tend to have less capacity.
