What is your maximum budget?
$550 aud (or about $400 us)

What country are you in?
Australia

What will be the uses of this laptop?
Browsing/youtube and word. Maybe some very light photo editing and CAD work.

Do you have brand loyalty or care which brands we select for you?
Would rather avoid asus.

What screen size do you require?
Ideally 11.6", however anything up to 14" is fine.

What screen resolution do you require?

1366x768 (or 1600x900)

Are you looking to buy NEW or would refurbished/recertified/used be okay?
Preferably new, refurbished is ok.

How long should the battery last? (Under optimal conditions, no movies/games/heavy internet)
Long. Something similar to the hp split x2 with 2 3-cell 32/33W batteries. I didn't have to charge that thing for days sometimes.

What games would you like to play with your laptop? And on what settings?
None.

What operating system do you need? (if any)
Whatever.

Is there a certain style of laptop you want? (aluminum, black, gaming, etc.)
Don't want a 2-in-1/hybrid, i want a laptop. Light and slim, most importantly light.

How much hard drive space do you need?
120GB SSD (or more). 64GB would be bare minimum. Totally fine if it comes with a hdd, I'll replace it with a ssd.

Do you need any special hardware? (blue ray, webcam, specialty ports, etc.)
Back-lit keyboard, however not essential.

Is there anything else we need to know?
If I could build my own laptop I would.
