Do you need a laptop that you can not only use on the go, but one that is so easy to carry around that you won’t even notice when it’s in your bag? Thanks to all of the advances that have been made within the computing field, there are now plenty of laptops that are extremely light and easy to take with you, but still pack quite a punch when it comes to their performance.
For an ultraportable laptop that you can effortlessly take with you anywhere, here are the five best options available:
#1: Apple MacBook Air MC506LL/A 11.6-Inch Laptop
Thanks to its weight of less than 2.5 pounds, this MacBook lives up to its “Air” name. Running on a 1.4 GHz Intel Core 2 Duo processor, the Air may be light, but it’s by no means weak. And because it has a strong metal body, the Air is tough enough to always take along with you.
#2: ASUS UL30A-X5K Thin and Light 13.3-Inch Laptop
Although this ultraportable ASUS weighs less than four pounds, it still features a 13.3 inch screen, which allows you to have a rich computing experience when you’re on the go. This ASUS also boasts a battery life of up to twelve hours, so you won’t have to worry about carrying a power cord with you during the day.
#3: Toshiba Portege R705-P41 TruBrite LED 13.3-Inch Laptop
When you put this laptop on your lap, you will instantly be able to feel how light it is. But, don’t let its lightness fool you. If you need a laptop that is ultraportable but can still handle business class work, this is the one for you. This laptop runs on a 2.53 GHz Intel Core i5-460M dual-core processor, and will have no problem completing the tasks you need it to accomplish.
#4: HP TouchSmart tm2-2150us 12.1-Inch Argento Laptop PC
Not only is this offering from HP an ultraportable laptop, but it also doubles as a tablet that you can use on the go. Whether you are typing a report on the laptop or jotting down notes on the tablet, the 12.1 inch screen gives you plenty of room to get things done. Another really cool feature of this laptop is its fingerprint reader. Instead of requiring you to constantly type in your passwords, you can store them on your laptop. The reason you won’t have to worry about your passwords being compromised is because your fingerprint will be the only way to access them. When you are asked to enter a password, simply place your finger on the fingerprint reader, and your stored password will instantly be entered.
#5: Toshiba Satellite L635-S3050 13.3-Inch LED Laptop
The Satellite L635-S3050 weighs a mere 4.8 pounds and features a blazingly fast 2.53 GHz Intel Core i5 processor. Thanks to the included Toshiba Media Controller, this is a great choice if you are interested in having a rich media experience on the go. From watching videos to playing music, you can enjoy all of your media on this laptop’s 13.3 inch HD TruBrite screen, which is complemented by its Dolby Advanced Audio speakers.
