If your business involves lots of traveling, and you need to carry a laptop/notebook all the time (because it allows you to do so many things on the go) then you don’t need anybody to sell you the idea of purchasing a lightweight notebook.
These ultraportable machines are designed solely with one point in mind, keeping weight to a minimum; they are thin and light, hence easy to carry around. While the old ones were lacking speed and other features, the latest notebooks are more than capable of carrying out tasks like web surfing, streaming, video conferencing, office work, and all that goes with it. Add to that the impressive battery life, and these notebooks become a must for all professionals who are keen to improve their productivity.
Almost all major laptop brands have their own versions of featherweight notebooks, with slightly different specifications. If you are looking for a laptop and its weight and battery life are two things you’re concerned about, then I’d urge you to go through the following list that features top 5 laptops which are light, yet heavyweights when it comes to performance.
1). Apple MacBook Air
For all Apple Inc loyalties, the MacBook Air is one hell of a machine.
Let’s take a quick look at its specs…
As you can see, it is much more than a handy device, but all good things come at a price and this impressive laptop is priced at around $3000. But if you are not a penny pincher than this machine is worth spending those bucks, it comes with a mighty good battery timing (up to 7 hours), and the specs are quite good when you look at the weight and body.
2). Dell Inspiron Mini 10V
If you were left flummoxed by the price tag of Macbook Air, here’s one that doesn’t cost much. The Dell Mini 10V is priced well under $400, and still, it is a pretty good laptop with some decent specs, which are given below.
The Dell Mini is actually a budget laptop, therefore you will find one or two issues in all reviews posted on the internet, but at the end of the day, Inspiron Mini 10v is perfect for travelers who are concerned about portability and connectivity, and for those who don’t want to spend a fortune for anything beyond these basic features.
3). HP TouchSmart TM2
It’s a tablet … it’s a notebook … It’s super, err HP Touchsmart TM2. Coming at the price of $749, the HP TouchSmart offers a touch enabled display with a keypad. It is almost weightless with a very good battery life, and because it is meant to be in hand (when being used as a tablet PC); it is built to stay cool with low voltage CULV processor and a gentle multi-touch screen. Here are the specs …
4). Toshiba Portege R705
Talk of lightweight laptops and you can’t help but include the latest Portege machine in the list, for years, Toshiba has introduced extremely portable machines under this brand, and this petite looking laptop is no different, just one inch thin, and weighing less than 2KG. Following are the specs …
5). ASUS Eee Pad Transformer TF 101
Ok, if throughout the list, you were looking at the weights like 2 or 3 lbs and thinking, huh, that’s pretty common these days, what about ending the list with an amazingly expedient laptop that weighs less than 700 grams? And provides 16 hours of battery timings? Impressed? It’s a little different though, as it is running Android 3.0, not Windows as its operating software, and just like HP Touchsmart, this one can also be used as a tablet PC, separated from the keypad. The gadget is not released as yet, but it’s well worth the wait.
