The majority of notebooks today have embedded webcams which allow you to video chat or video conference for pleasure and business purposes.

Built in webcams have their benefits of saving cost and easier portability than if you had to buy and carry around an external camera; however they’re not great for people intending to display the surroundings since the entire laptop would have to be moved around.

The best notebook with Webcam has a good quality camera that also permits you to take still pictures, and is compatible to video chat applications.

  • Is it worth upgrading from the last generation? From our viewpoint, only if battery life is top on your priority list. The improved GPU performance is nice, and the new PCIe SSD is too, but these components only offer a significant advantage for specific applications. That's true of the new ac WLAN module too, as you'll need a corresponding router to take advantage of it.


  • The MacBook Air 13-inch is the longest-lasting ultraportable notebook -- without a bulky extra battery -- at a more affordable price, making the best 13-inch laptop even better.


  • We were worried about that 1.3 GHz clock speed at first, but the Haswell processor proves more than a match for its faster-looking Ivy Bridge predecessor while nearly a day's battery life. Combine that performance with the MacBook Air's lightweight, elegant design and you've got an ultraportable laptop that still sets the standard for its Windows rivals to copy.


  • The Samsung ATIV Book 9 Plus goes toe to toe with the best premium ultrabooks, then tops it off with a jaw-dropping high-resolution display.


  • In any case, the 940X3G has overall really earned a purchase recommendation, although potential buyers can choose among many, not less attractive alternatives. Another serious contender might be the soon to be released Lenovo IdeaPad Yoga 2 Pro that features an even better configuration for a similar price. Samsung should not rest on its laurels.


  • The ATIV Book 9 Plus keeps the slim and sleek chassis of its predecessor and adds a Retina-like display, long battery life and swift Haswell performance.


  • Is it worth upgrading from the last generation? From our viewpoint, only if battery life is top on your priority list. The improved GPU performance is nice, and the new PCIe SSD is too, but these components only offer a significant advantage for specific applications. That's true of the new ac WLAN module too, as you'll need a corresponding router to take advantage of it.


  • Apple's new 11-inch MacBook Air offers much longer battery life than competing ultraportables, along with snappier performance.


  • We were worried about that 1.3 GHz clock speed at first, but the Haswell processor proves more than a match for its faster-looking Ivy Bridge predecessor while nearly a day's battery life. Combine that performance with the MacBook Air's lightweight, elegant design and you've got an ultraportable laptop that still sets the standard for its Windows rivals to copy.


  • If you can get over the Dell XPS 12's screen acrobatics, this convertible ultrabook is a good way to get both tablet and laptop functionality in one unit.


  • Truly, there is not much to criticize about Dell's latest XPS 12. It is a top-tier piece of technology that excels in nearly every department, from its exquisite construction to its clever, versatile design. It maintains one of the best keyboards on any Ultrabook to date, coupled with a comfortable touchpad, accurate 10-point multi-touch screen, and a reasonable weight that - while still a bit heavy by tablet standards - communicates quality. And it's incredibly stylish, to boot.


  • With a fourth-generation Intel processor and a higher-capacity battery, Dell's updated XPS 12 is an excellent 12-inch tablet-laptop hybrid that can go the distance.


  • The MSI GS70 Stealth (GS70 2OD-002US) is a solid ultraportable gaming laptop, but even with good performance and battery life, it's a close race with the competition.


  • The GS70 Stealth is an attractive and powerful device for gaming enthusiasts who want to use the 17.3-inch notebook on the road. The build quality is good, the design is appealing and the weight is not much higher than a standard multimedia notebook. All of this is combined with a high-contrast and bright display that is well suited for gaming and movie playback.

    Even though the 3D performance of the GS70 Stealth cannot always keep up with the competition, it is still very good if you consider the size of the notebook.


  • The MSI GS70 crams a fourth-gen Core i7 CPU, Nvidia GTX graphics and a 17.3-inch 1080p display into an extremely slim chassis.
