Midrange laptops are generally not specialized in either portability or efficiency and the best midrange notebooks are ideally suited for basic Web applications, word processing and basic multimedia entertainment.
Being a shade smaller than desktop replacements weighing around 6 to 8 lb, and low battery life, these laptops aren't the best fit for travellers, but rather for home entertainment, with their fairly large screens of about 14 to 16 inches.
Furthermore, the processing efficiency of a midsize laptop largely depends on its price tag, so you can find notebooks that run on basic AMD Sempron and Intel Celeron, mid-level performance processors like Core Duo, as well as those that use high end Core 2 Duo processors. Most of these have a built in RAM of 2 GB or more, which is the smallest recommended option along with at least 100 GB hard drive.
Midrange notebooks begin at $500, while the fully loaded ones are $900 or higher. The best midrange notebook should also include amenities like a DVD drive and Wi-Fi which are commonly used features.
The best budget notebooks excel in providing the best value for cost.
