There's nothing really hard-core that you do that any laptop would have any trouble with. All I can say is that if you want to do any gaming, avoiding Intel graphics would be a good idea. Avoiding Intel graphics is always a good idea because the image quality is crap and their drivers are broken pretty much out of the box. You want long battery life and honestly. no laptop is going to give you 6-8 hours if you're actually using it. I think that this $500 laptop would be more than enough for what you need and would deliver fantastic battery life:

Here's a tomshardware review of the platform itself. I have one that's almost identical and I love it.
