The best poker notebook excels in processing speed and picture clarity.

A sturdy antivirus program is necessary for running poker applications efficiently. Another key aspect is the screen display; and though full HD is recommended, good resolution of 1080i is an absolute must and so is a 512 MB dedicated graphics card.

Furthermore, SSD drives are much more preferable than HDDs, being almost thrice as fast as HDDs while launching applications or booting, and altogether provide better performance.

The best notebook for poker implements a good operating system and an inbuilt Wi-Fi function effectively.

If you're not wedded to Apple's operating system, Dell's notebook is the way to go, but Mac fans who value endurance above all else will find the new 13-inch Air the best there is.

The MacBook Air 11-inch is a wonderful commuter laptop, and it should be on your short list if you're constantly on the move.

It's excellent overall, and an improvement over last year's version.

It has a great screen, looks good and delivers in every way that matters.

Asus Chromebook Flip (C100PA-DB02), on the other hand, delivers a stunning, lightweight convertible design, excellent performance, and impressive battery life for under $300.
