I recently bought a new laptop for myself, and i use it for school. Its an ASUS S56CA. specs:
2.3 kg (i dont know about pounds)
Intel i3 3217u
6 GB Ram
1TB HDD and 24 GB SSD Hybrid (faster than normal HDD)
15,6" HD Screen
Num-pad
BEAUTIFUL Design
Win8
DVD, wifi all that stuff.

I bought it for 575£, BUT i live in a country with huge taxes. So you should be able to get it for under 450£
I have no complains about it, and everything is just smothe smile.gif Hope i could help
