1.5Kg limits you a lot, especially on > 13" screen. Cost will probably rule out Dell XPS and HP Spectre.

If you don't mind going a bit over that 1.5Kg, but still under 2.0Kg, take a look at the Lenovo Yoga Core I5 laptops.
Actually, this I7 model looks good:

Might be worth waiting to see if there's any special offers on laptops with GTX 9xx series graphics in the runup to black Friday - now that the GTX 10xx series are out there may be a few old models sold off.

Thanks! I had seen the UX310UA... and will now have a look at the UX305 as per your recommendation :)

Some idea of budget would be useful. No point recommending a £1000 laptop if you've only got £500 to spend ...

Indeed :) Ideally, around £500-600.

The laptop will get plenty of use as shared. But mainly for browsing and watching videos. No high resolution, gaming/editing, touchscreen/2-in-1 requirements.

Given our needs, we thought we could get away with buying a £300 laptop. It turned out to be frustratingly slow. So we want to keep the portability of our current laptop (battery life, weight and size) but with a SSD (simply fitting a SSD on the current laptop wouldn't be worth it as already old).

Thanks!

you don't mention a budget but when I was looking for similar spec laptop last year I tried the XPS/Spectre's and ended up buying a Macbook Pro retina...yes it's very expensive but I've not regretted it for a minute.

Avoid the Macbook Air If you start looking at Mac's though, it's old and tired now....

Expensive indeed :) Targeting the £500-600 mark as I mainly use my laptop for browsing and watching videos.

No high resolution, gaming/editing, touchscreen/2-in-1 requirements. Just reliability, speed (for light tasks) and portability :)
