7 Best Lightweight Laptops for 2017

Laptops have never been this portable and cheap! Take a quick look online and you’ll be surprised that there’s a wide array of them to choose from. And they’re getting more affordable. Blame it on the tablets and smartphones but with the growing availability of their lightweight, portable and sleek version, getting a laptop has never been easier and faster!

The laptops we’re featuring on our list do not only come at a price that’s value for your money but they also got the aesthetic appeal, wafer-thin designs and internal guts that will get your work done immediately. So read on and find out our top picks for lightweight laptops in 2017.

HP Spectre 13 V011DX

This Windows laptop is sleek enough to function like a MacBook. It’s so lightweight you can put it inside your slingbag or use it without any hassle. It features a tactile keyboard and its monitor comes with the standard 1080p display. Compared to MacBook, its Intel Core-series processor enables it to have the stylish look and the computing abilities you’ll never have to doubt. It features three USB-C ports where you can attach your peripherals (a converter is needed though when using the old USB-A).

Dell XPS 13

There’s no doubt Dell XPS 13 is the most compact Windows laptop, featuring a stunning bezel-less display, lightweight, compact frame, and off-center webcam. While its small frame limits the battery life, its Infinity Edge makes every buck you spend well worth it. Since its bezel is only a few millimeters thick, buying this 13.3-inch laptop will make you think it’s only 11 inches. It is really portable and comfortable to carry without sacrificing the number of USB ports or the battery power. The laptop also features both Thunderbolt 3 and USB 3.0 ports.

New Razer Blade Stealth

Stylish and made of only premium materials, this laptop contains new Intel Kaby Lake processor to give you a guarantee of a top notch performance. Its vibrant high-resolution touch display makes it ideal for reading and word processing. Another interesting thing about this laptop is that its battery life is pretty long so with its sleekness, quality performance, and long life, you get a bang for your buck.

Apple MacBook MLHA2LL/A

No list of lightweight laptops for 2017 is ever complete without the MacBook. Last year, the Apple bestseller took a new version to new processors that ensures speedy performance and longer battery life. For aesthetic purposes, a rose gold color option is now available to add color to your choices. The new version of Macbook contains features including touch screens, 4K resolutions, depth-sensing webcams and detachable keyboards. Its minimalist look makes it nice to use whether you’re working at home, in the office or outdoors.

HP Spectre x2

Another offering from HP is the HP Spectre x2. It is hailed for its slim look but don’t ever think it isn’t long-lasting. It’s actually built with a sturdy design in mind and its stiffer keyboard makes it a tough choice against Microsoft’s Surface Pro. Added bonus to this lightweight laptop is the keyboard cover. Its mobile broadband antenna makes n-the-go data access fast and convenient. Another observation, though, is that it’s difficult to operate the kickstand and the slowness of the processor is worth noting. Battery life is definitely OK. Yet, with its slim, attractive look, lower-power processor, and cover keyboard, buying the HP Spectre x2 is a wise decision.

Dell Inspiron 11 3000 Series (3162)

This Dell lightweight laptop is a budget friendly choice for the price conscious consumer. But, wait, there’s more. Its sturdy build, excellent performance, and long battery life are bug pluses. However, critics note that this laptop looks divisive with its old blue color while the middling display with poor viewing angles are two things to consider. For its basic price of $180, this laptop is a best buy with its features, durability and functionality.

Asus ZenBook 3 (UX390UA-XH74-BL)

You’ll never find any laptop as thin as this lightweight one from Asus. But mind you, it’s earning raves for its first-rate performance and battery life. Listening to music makes a great experience thanks to its strong speakers. The fingerprint reader will surely attract those looking for added security features. The con however, is that this laptop only has one integrated USB-C port and it only has a limited to full HD panel. The touchpad may also feel slippery. Performance wise and considering its battery life, the Asus ZenBook 3 is a practical purchase.

The Architecture Automotive Overlap!


Imagine a world where Architecture takes inspiration from Transportation design. We would have some spectacular looking buildings, wouldn’t we?! Honestly though, the edgiest buildings would be those inspired by Lamborghini’s aggressively sculpted designs.

The Lamborghini Museum literally takes a slice of the Supercar company’s visual language and uses it to create an architectural masterpiece. The keen Lamborghini enthusiast may notice that the building mirrors the curves and style of the Aventador LP700-4. Me, I’m just wondering where the ticket counter to this place is!
