Dear Lifehacker, I'm just starting my second year of university and my home laptop is too bulky to take with me. I'm on the hunt for a secondary laptop but since I'm a full-time student, I'm on a bit of a budget. I don't have too many requirements -- just that it is smaller, has long battery life, fits at least 2 USB ports and runs relatively smoothly. I'm really struggling to make a decision here. Any suggestions?
