If it were me, I'd get something like an Acer Swift 3. It has a 1080p IPS display, Core i5-8250U (4 core, 8 thread, 1.6GHz base/3.4GHz turbo), 8GB RAM, 256GB SSD and it has good battery life. You can get the model with the MX150, but it really isn't necessary and would probably hurt battery life a little. It's 14 inches, which is nice for portability but you may want something larger (such as the 15.6" variant)


Another thing. For Excel, you may want a number pad, which this doesn't have.
