Laptops are arguably the ultimate portable device. Sure, mobile phones have a lot of great features, but laptops have everything you need to properly and efficiently work on the go. No matter what the size you can often simply slip a laptop into your bag and carry it around without any fuss and head off to wherever you need to be.
Part of the reason that’s so easy is that laptops are made to be as light as possible and not feature any heavy or overbearing components. There are, however, laptops with large screens. Although these offer a better viewing experience, they do compromise on portability a little bit.
So, to help make the whole process a lot easier, we’re looking at the lightest laptops to take all of the difficulty out of working on the go.
This compact laptop is built with a 14” screen and does the perfect job of maximising viewing with a NanoEdge thin bezel. Combine this with HD and you’ve got almost cinematic viewing quality on a portable screen!
