Ideal for the users who value portability while demanding more performance than you'd get from a netbook, these notebooks stand out for their low weight and small footprint
Priced from $600 to $2,000 or more, ultraportables skimp on size and weight but not on horsepower and features. The best of the lot feature fast Intel Core CPUs, 4GB of RAM, accelerated graphics and video, hi-res displays, and even solid state drives. These laptops can also be long on battery life and good looks. Shortcomings may include tinny audio, a crimpy display, small and slippery keyboards, and an absent DVD drive.
