I need a cheap (600 or below) touch screen windows laptop for school that has lots of battery life. Portability isn't the highest concern (I'm already lugging around a huge backpack, it wouldn't be much more) but I do want something with the build quality to last me for a long time. I'd like it to be able to do some extremely basic cad (sketchup, autodesk fusion 360, autodesk inventor student edition, not really any assemblies, just parts), but more importantly it has to be able to run word processing/powerpoint apps and internet browsers.

Just for options though, I'd like to compare it with something in the same price range, meets the same criteria, except not touch-screen. :? :? :?

If you can wait it out before getting a laptop... wait for black friday deals when you enter MBA... or try connecting with a second year who has access to the second hand laptop market at school. Those are significantly cheaper compared to actual prices.

I would try to find laptops that fit your criteria, even if they might be above you price range. Then you can check sites like TechRadar which usually show good deals for various tech items around the web for each month. I would also recommend checking out Amazon Prime prices because they offer some really nice warranties sometimes.

Please do not buy a Dell computer. I purchased the XPS 13 6 months ago and it has crashed 3 times already. Each time I had to
reinstall the operating system, thereby deleting everything stored on my laptop - files, pictures -everything. I would have lost
it all if I did not have cloud storage. Technicians could not help me retrive backup files from the hard drive.
To make matters worse, they asked me to pay more money above the basic warranty which I had already paid for to "fix" the issue, which
they could not do successfully. The first time it happened I was told it was a one-off event. That was a blatant falsehood. This is
the third time this has happened. I spent countless hours on the phone over several days, wasting so much time trying an
inordinate number of steps to no avail. Dell refused to give me a refund, replacement or exchange despite my "premium"
warranty. To add insult to injury, they claimed they would send someone over to fix it in 2-3 days! Being
that technicians don't work on the weekend and they have no emergency response. For a business school student, one cannot afford
to have no laptop for 3 days. Please do yourself a favor and look elsewhere for a laptop.
Buying a Dell laptop is like throwing your money away or gouging out your eyes for no good reason. Complete torture. The warranties they offer
are pointless and do not protect customers. You will regret buying a Dell laptop. If you value your sanity, health and well-being, just
don't do it. Their consumer laptops do not work as advertised, fail unexpectedly and customer service is extremely unhelpful.
