These midsize laptops are affordable and offer more options for hardware and features than smaller laptops, yet are more portable than desktop replacement models
If you're willing to lug an additional pound or three, you can get a much more capable machine that's also easier on your eyes and hands, if not always your pocketbook. Ranging from less than $1,000 to a no-compromises $3,000, these midsize sedans generally combine solid performance and the features you need. At the top end of the scale, you'll find fast Intel Core i7 processors, plenty of RAM and storage, big and rich displays, Blu-ray drives, and discrete graphics processors that shift games into high gear.
