Laptop recommendation

Hello I hope that is not OT for this list.

Basically I'm on the hunt for a newish laptop on which I naturally want
to run Debian. I'm a student and I spend most of my daily outandabout 
computer time reading pdfs, writing LaTeX docs, surfing and doing some 
light coding, no heavy duty stuff in other words. I use i3vm and I
generally like to keep things as light and minimal as feasibly possible.

I really value light weight and good battery life and my upper bound on prize
is somewhere around 875$ (~7K SEK). Memory should be greater than or
equal to 2GB and an sdd would be nice.

I know very little about hardware and I'm not quite sure where or how to 
start looking. I though the Lenovo Thinkpad 13 looked promising but it's a bit 
over my price target. Could chromeboosk be something to look into? I
know the older thinkpads has good debian support but if I remember
correctly they are also very heavy.

As a small reference: I made due with a Asus EEE PC 1005HA for a number 
of years and it generally worked well for my purposes but it died and
surfing was a pain so I'm looking to upgrade a bit from that.

Any suggestions?

Best regards
Jonas Hedman
