Ideal for the consumer that values portability while demanding more performance than you'd get from a netbook, these notebooks stand out for their low weight and small footprint
What's in an ultraportable? Think netbook on the outside, and real laptop on the inside. The small form factor means forgoing a DVD drive, and making due with a small screen and narrow keyboard. If that's a small price to pay for light weight (just 2 or 3 pounds, in some cases), then an ultraportable may be just what your doctor ordered. In the top models, you'll find capable CPUs, gobs of RAM, excellent video, and even gamer-level performance, combined with better battery life than a full-size laptop (even 7 hours or more).
