The Lenovo IdeaPad Flex 5i 82M7004HUX, one of this year’s best sold Chromebooks, is a versatile and affordable 2-in-1 portable device which offers both laptop and tablet functionality.
The new ASUS ZenBook 13 UX325EA-XS74 is a 13-inch ultralight all rounder laptop. I’ve written a more in-depth review of the ZenBook UX325EA-DS51 model which you can read by clicking the link. There are differences between the two, but not in terms of design, size, weight, or display quality. However, these differences makes this model significantly more expensive, but not that much when compared to direct competitors.
A true featherweight, the all-new ASUS ZenBook 13 UX325EA-DS51 is, perhaps, one of this year’s best budget friendly ultrabooks. It surpasses many of its competitors in terms of value for money, features and performance. But, as is the case with any affordable laptop, a few compromises have been made to keep its price down. While expected, these drawbacks are by no means deal-breakers.
HP’s popular ENVY series has just received a much awaited refresh earlier this month, in terms of hardware. Its design hasn’t changed a bit since the last iteration which featured 8th gen Intel processors. The brand new HP ENVY 13-aq1010nr laptop is as lightweight and practical as ever, with the added benefit of having the latest technology inside it.
Samsung have just released a new breed of lightweight notebooks. The 7 series comes in multiple size and hardware options. This particular model I’ll be reviewing today is the 13.3 inch flagship, the Samsung Notebook 7 NP730XBE-K02US. It’s the most powerful and future-proof out of their 13-inch lineup, and I consider it to be the one to go for if you’re after a a thin, ultra portable and stylish laptop.
Of all ZenBook models, each with their own strengths and weaknesses, the all-new ASUS ZenBook 13 UX331FA series are by far the most portable. Weighing less than 2.5 pounds, this is one of the most lightweight ultrabooks you can buy for less than $1000. And although its capabilities are slightly less impressive than its more hardware rich siblings, most users won’t notice. Because this is still a device that will withstand all modern apps and tasks with ease.
