Laptop buying advice, non-gaming, five hundred dollar budget

Does anyone have any experience buying a laptop for around 400-500 dollars?

I am looking for the standard college kid laptop, I just want to run Microsoft Office, run itunes and chrome. I'm looking for durability and longevity, my dell just died after two years, possibly because I made the poor thing run dragon age and oblivion.
