Top ultraportable laptops

With screen sizes less than 14 inches and weights less than 4 pounds, ultraportable laptops strike an appealing balance between portability and performance

If you're looking for a Windows laptop that looks like a MacBook Air, you've come to the right place. These systems are fast and full-featured, yet slim, light, and generally long on battery life. A few even sport solid-state drives, and some offer an external DVD or Blu-ray drive. Compromise is the name of the game in this class, and the more you accept the less you'll pay. Watch out for poor audio, mediocre displays, and lousy keyboards and trackpads.
