Non-gaming Laptop that gets the job done

Hi I am looking for suggestions for non-gaming laptop that is:

-Small

-Fast enough for browsing (ram and internet hardware)

-Fast enough for excel, word and powerpoint

-not for gaming, dedicated GPU not needed (I already have an ASUS Scar with GTX 1060 and with I7)

-Lap-able (my gaming laptop is too big to use while in bed and heavy - 17 inch)

-can play 1080p movies well

-has good screen

-reasonably priced, reasonable enough for a secondary laptop

-with ssd boot drive and 1 tb HDD (hopefully upgradable)

 

edit: I am from UAE, Budget is on the cheap side as long as it has the capabilities I mentioned. 

weight- enough that when i lift it by the edge with one hand, my wrist wont get straine

with a decent battery life (3-4 hours maybe?)

1 kg to 1.5 kg? Again if theres one thats more lighter is better. It doesnt have to be top of the line. It just have to get the job done. Probably with a decent screen.

Your budget is too low, might want to go used
