HP notebook 15q is a solid option. It has Intel core i3 6th gen , 4GB ram , 1TB hard disk and 2GB AMD graphics card. Only downside is it comes with DOS 2.0. So you have to install windows on your own,  you can easily find one on internet. I would also suggest you get additional ram installed, atleast 4GB , to get the most out of this laptop.
