The key is to not get a laptop geared to take the place of a desktop.

That is a very bad move.

I would like to spend less then $500. I use it to write, do research and some streaming. No games or anything like that.

No laptop will break the bank. You can throw them as hard as you want, but the bank is made of steel and stuff.

The Panasonic Toughbooks will be your best shot, but I doubt even they will break the bank. They can be a little pricey though, not sure if you want to spend a whole lot.
