With screen sizes under 14 inches and weight under 4 pounds, ultraportable laptops strike an appealing balance between portability and performance
The prices on these systems stretch from under $500 to $2,500, which tells you there are plenty of choices here. The common denominator is small size and light weight. Otherwise, the usual tradeoffs apply. Be on the alert for lousy ergonomics, poor build quality, short battery life, and mediocre multimedia. If you're willing to spend, you can have a beefy little machine with plenty of RAM, discrete graphics, gaming power, and decent battery life. For users who want it all, the Lenovo ThinkPad X220 and Sony Vaio SB Series are the first places to look.
