I think that the build quality of Ideapads are quite questionable, which makes it hard to recommend. So, I would recommend the **Acer Swift 3** with the Ryzen configuration, good mix for specifications / battery life / battery life. Ryzen might be the best option for you since you’re playing some light games.

The battery life is up to 8 hours according to Acer, I think it is decently accurate.

The weight is 3.6lbs which is very light for a 15.6″ laptop.

The OS is Windows 10 Home.

The integrated Vega 8 graphics can handle light games just fine, but it will depend on the title. 8 GB RAM and Ryzen 5 2500U processor will be fine for general use.

The laptop’s keyboard is backlit white. This laptop includes a 256 GB SSD storage.

The Aspire E 15 is a fairly good option, but it is a bit larger so I crossed it off the list.

Let me know if you have any concerns.
