The best ultraportable laptops are engineered to combine light weight with good efficiency. They are a compact substitute for tablet users needing a QWERTY keyboard, though with much smaller typing space and fewer features than normal laptops.
Most Ultraportables are fitted with screen sizes of 11 to 13 inches, and weigh less than 4 lb, and the latest ones even feature 14 inch screens with no impact on the weight.
Ultraportable laptops are available at $1100 and above for basic models and $2000 and higher for the higher end models, and are the best option for business travellers as they offer good security options along with excellent battery power.
Typically these laptops are integrated with good low voltage mobile processors with the best of them running on dual cores accompanied with at least 2 GB RAM and 100 GB HDD capacity. The best ultraportable laptops have an inbuilt Wi-Fi and Bluetooth, and perform efficiently enough to function as your day to day computer.
