The best small laptops – a New York Computer Help review

Are you looking for a good small laptop for portability and light weight?  There are a handful of good laptops out there that can be tucked away in your briefcase or book bag.  Or you can lay them on a kitchen table or office desk with plenty of room for other stuff.

Instead of listing all the specs, we’ll provide only the details you really wants to hear, weight, screen size, and price.  Here are the top 6 best small laptops:

  1. Sony Vaio P Series – 1.4 lbs, 8″ screen, $900
  2. Dell Inspiron Mini 9 – 2.28 lbs, 8.9″ screen, $250
  3. Asus Eee – 2.09 – 3.10lbs, 7 – 10″ screens, $250 – $400
  4. HP Mini 1000 Vivienne Tam Edition – 2.45 lbs, 10.1″ screen, $700
  5. Lenovo Ideapad S10 – 2.64 lbs, 10.2″ screen, $350
  6. Acer Aspire One AOD150 – 3 lbs, 10.1″ screen, $350

The ratings above are based on portability, ability to see well on the smaller screen, as well as the expandability to more RAM and hard drive space.  Please note that these laptops, although great for their small size, are the worst for air ventilation due to their condensed sizes.  Further, a laptop repair fix on these small guys typically means opening up the whole laptop which means a higher labor cost than the larger laptops.
