8 thinnest laptops

* Review of the best according to the editors of ecdfburma.org. About the selection criteria. This material is subjective, is not an advertisement and does not serve as a guide to the purchase. Before buying, you need to consult with a specialist.

The world is no longer what it was a couple of decades ago. Now there is no point in carrying a bulky laptop with a weight of several kilograms. Why, if thin laptops exist now? Yes, they usually don’t have a discrete graphics card, but for solving office problems the graphics core capabilities, which are usually integrated into the processor, are enough. As for the cost, it can be different - it all depends on the configuration of a particular model. Unfortunately, some ultra-thin laptops are no good - they work slowly, and their design orders them to live long after a year of use. In order not to buy just such a model, check out our selection. It describes exclusively the best laptops, the purchase of which is unlikely to disappoint.

Acer SWIFT 7

Rating: 4.9

Want to get yourself a pretty laptop that is thin and light? In this case, you should be interested in the Acer SWIFT 7, which opens our rating. At the time of release, it was definitely the thinnest laptop in the world. Its thickness was only 8.98 mm. At one time, even some tablet computers were much thicker! As for the weight, it is 1.13 kg. Not bad for a device with a 13.3-inch display, a full QWERTY keyboard and a very capacious lithium-polymer battery.

The screen of this laptop has a resolution of 1920x1080 pixels. Not very high parameter. But it is perfect for watching some YouTube videos or movies. Also, the lack of a 4K display here has a positive effect on speed. Even the dual-core Intel Core i5 processor, clocked at 1.2 GHz, is enough to ensure that all applications open as quickly as possible, and their interface does not slow down at all. This speed is also facilitated by the SSD-drive - it contains the files of the operating system and all programs. The volume of the solid-state drive is 256 GB. Not much, but enough to work. It’s pointless to download games here.

As you might guess, such a thin laptop could not have at its disposal a discrete graphics card. Instead, it uses the Intel HD Graphics 615 graphics chip, which occupies part of the chipset area. It is impossible to engage in video editing and solving other such difficult tasks on such a laptop. But the interface of Windows 10 and various programs is drawn without any problems.

The composition of the laptop includes 8 GB of RAM. The laptop also has a wireless module that understands the Wi-Fi standard 802.11ac. Thanks to this, you can not store movies and other media data in the built-in storage device. They are recommended to be kept on an external hard drive connected to a router - with support for the aforementioned standard, you will definitely not experience problems playing them. Also, an external HDD can be connected to the laptop itself, using the USB 3.1 connector and the corresponding adapter.

Some people are used to displaying images from a laptop on a TV or monitor. Acer SWIFT 7 also allows you to do this, but under certain conditions. There is simply no HDMI connector! Instead, it is proposed to use USB Type-C - as you know, in modern laptops it is he who is used to display pictures in high resolution. It is much easier to connect headphones here - for this, a traditional 3.5 mm combo jack is used. By the way, the device also supports a Bluetooth headset - the “blue tooth” works without any complaints.

Such a small laptop could not get at its disposal a huge battery. Here, its capacity is 2770 mAh. However, even such a battery lasts for 7-9 hours of battery life. As controls, a keyboard and a very convenient touchpad are used here. Alas, the screen is deprived of a touch pad. But then it is made using IPS technology, which indicates maximum viewing angles.

It remains to add that this laptop has several additional “goodies”. Unfortunately, the buyer will not receive GPS, but at least some kind of fingerprint scanner will protect personal data. There is also a SIM card slot, thanks to which access to the global web is provided even outdoors.

Advantages

  • Very good sound;
  • Minimum thickness;
  • The screen has maximum viewing angles;
  • There is support for LTE and Wi-Fi 802.11ac;
  • There is an SSD-drive with a decent amount;
  • Long battery life;
  • Unlock is available by fingerprint scanning;
  • Light weight.

Disadvantages

  • Very high cost;
  • A modest processor is used;
  • No discrete graphics card.

DELL XPS 13 9370

Rating: 4.8

Another very thin laptop, which could not get into our rating. It exists in several configurations. Basically, different versions have a different processor. But in any case, it will be the eighth generation Intel chipset. The budget option will work using the Intel Core i5-8250U, whose clock frequency reaches 3.4 GHz. Well, the top version of the laptop is based on the Core i7-8650U - the frequency of its cores reaches the mark of 4.2 GHz. In a word, no matter which laptop you choose, it will definitely cope with the launch of even the most difficult applications.

The thickness of this laptop in some places does not exceed 7.8 mm. Well, in the thickest place, this parameter is 11.6 mm. In a word, this laptop cannot be called any thick. Its top cover houses a 13.3-inch IPS display. Screen resolution, again, differs depending on the configuration purchased. If you are only going to work with documents, then Full HD resolution is quite enough for you. Well, for a comfortable viewing of modern films, you will need an option with a 4K display.

What else differ in different configurations? Of course, the amount of RAM - it varies from 4 to 16 GB. In this case, the smallest option leads to problems when starting a large number of applications. The operating system may also differ - Windows 10 Home and Windows 10 Pro are optional. However, there are cheaper laptops that operate using the free Ubuntu - it is assumed that the user will install the Microsoft operating system on their own, if such a need arises at all.

There is simply no room for a hard drive in such a thin laptop. Because of this, the manufacturer had to build an SSD. In an inexpensive configuration, a 128 GB drive is used. And the more expensive the purchased version, the greater the volume is waiting for you - in theory you can buy DELL XPS 13 9370 with a terabyte SSD!

Of course, there is no video card here - the graphics processing is assigned to the Intel UHD Graphics 620. If you want to, then the image can be displayed on the monitor - Thunderbolt 3 and USB-C connectors are used for this. It is a pity that there was no place for a couple of USB 3.0 ports - you will have to use a splitter to connect peripherals.

Now an increasing number of electronic devices are equipped with a fingerprint scanner. It is also in the DELL XPS 13 9370 - you should look for it in the power button. Also, the product is capable of boasting high-quality acoustics. This sound will be enough for someone even when watching a movie! No problems arise when organizing video communications - the camera takes a picture in 720p resolution, and the sound is captured by as many as four microphones! Connection to the router is carried out using the Wi-Fi 802.11ac module - the speed is impressive. There is another wireless module here - it is used to interact with Bluetooth devices.

Perhaps this is one of the best laptops in the world at the time of this writing. For good reason, he received several awards at the CES 2018 exhibition. However, the top configurations of this laptop are expensive - Russian online stores ask for more than 100 thousand rubles.

Advantages

  • Any configuration has a powerful processor;
  • There are versions with a large amount of RAM;
  • SSD is used for data storage;
  • The top configuration has a 4K display;
  • There is a fingerprint scanner;
  • Good sound
  • Four microphones are built in;
  • Supported wireless standards Bluetooth 4.1 and Wi-Fi 802.11ac.

Disadvantages

  • No discrete graphics card;
  • Not a very large number of connectors;
  • Many can not afford.

Acer SWIFT 5

Rating: 4.7

Our rating started with a top-end laptop released by Acer. It has a terribly high cost - at the level of high-performance MacBooks. Would you like to purchase something more affordable, but no less subtle? In this case, you should consider buying another laptop from Acer - it got the name SWIFT 5.

This computer was released recently. While it is present in only a few Russian online stores. However, there is no doubt that in the future the laptop will become more widespread. People will definitely like the device, whose weight does not reach even one kilogram. Customers will also appreciate the IPS display installed here, which has a resolution of 1920x1080 pixels. You can look at it from any angle. Well, the brightness of the backlight at the level of 300 nits allows you to enjoy the picture even on the street when the sun is shining. At the same time, the screen turned out to be very large - its diagonal is 15.6 inches. The laptop itself is not very large. The fact is that the side frame has a width of 5.87 mm - this is what made it possible to reduce the size of the device. By the way, there are even more compact versions of the laptop computer - their screen has a diagonal of 14 inches. Interestingly, the permission is left unchanged. It turns out that such configurations have a higher pixel density.

The laptop itself has a thickness of 14.6 mm. Not a record, but before, one could only dream of such a parameter. In fact, the laptop is comparable to two moderately thin tablets. But here there is not only a high-quality screen, but also a convenient keyboard! By the way, the weight of the device depends on the configuration. There are a little less than two dozen! The manufacturer tried to create products for both frugal customers and those who require high power. The former should be interested in the version that Linux provides. In the future, you can easily install the familiar Windows 10 yourself. Also, relatively inexpensive versions of Acer SWIFT 5 can not boast of a particularly powerful processor. But the dual-core Intel Core i5-7200U is enough to solve most fairly complex tasks. It is clear that it is impossible to mount video on such a laptop. But this is not a processor trouble, but the lack of a discrete graphics card. Yes, and what thin laptop can be used for video editing?

It's nice that even low-cost versions of the Acer SWIFT 5 have at their disposal 8 GB of RAM. Well, more productive options have twice as much volume, and even the standard DDR4. As for the constant memory, then of course there is no hard disk. Instead, a solid-state drive is used, the volume of which is either 256 or 512 GB.

Unfortunately, this laptop is by no means powerful. At its disposal is a relatively modest processor by modern standards. The specific chipset model depends on the configuration selected. But even the most expensive option will offer nothing but the Intel Core i7-8565U - a quad-core processor operating at a frequency of 1.8 GHz. However, its capabilities are enough for the stable operation of the operating system and most existing applications. However, such a laptop is definitely not worth buying if you intend to use it for 3D modeling and solving other complex problems. This is an office typewriter, nothing more.

I am glad that modern laptops receive high-speed communications. For example, Acer SWIFT 5 can connect to the Internet using the Wi-Fi standard 802.11ac. Its capabilities are quite enough even to watch a 4K movie contained on an external hard drive connected to the router. There is also support for the "blue tooth", thanks to which you can listen to music in Bluetooth-headphones. But there is no SIM card slot in this laptop. Alas, you won’t be able to access the Internet on the street if you are not at that moment in the Wi-Fi network coverage area.

I am glad that even this laptop received a fingerprint scanner. It seems that in the future absolutely all laptops will be equipped with such a sensor. And the manufacturer of this device did not forget about the USB 3.0 ports - there are exactly two of them here. Also on one of the ends you can find the USB Type-C jack. Of course, the ability to output images to a monitor or TV has not gone away. Well, to connect a wired headset, a 3.5 mm so-called combo jack is used.

It remains to add that the battery capacity of 4670 mAh provides battery life to this representative of our rating. Nice figure. Already it is clear that this is still not the thinnest laptop among the existing ones on the market. It is assumed that a full charge will be enough for 8-9 hours of operation. In practice, it all depends on what exactly you will do.

Advantages

  • The weight of almost all configurations is 999 grams;
  • Long battery life;
  • Elegant design;
  • Comes with the operating system Windows 10 Home;
  • The number of connectors cannot be called minimal;
  • There is a fingerprint scanner;
  • A version with a 512-gigabyte SSD drive is available;
  • A decent amount of RAM;
  • Good IPS display with Full HD resolution.

Disadvantages

  • The processor cannot be called particularly powerful;
  • Cost will not suit everyone;
  • No discrete graphics card.

HP Envy 13-ah0011ur

Rating: 4.7

A rare case when we recommend purchasing a specific laptop configuration. The laptop hiding under the HP Envy 13-ah0011ur index is not only thin, but also has a long battery life. And also this model received a substantial amount of memory. The product also has other advantages, which we will now talk about in full detail.

Despite the price tag reaching 100 thousand rubles, this computer can not be called particularly powerful. It was created on the basis of Intel Core i7-8550U - a quad-core processor, clocked at 1.8 GHz. However, it should be noted that in our article we are talking exclusively about the autonomous use of a laptop. If you connect this laptop to a power outlet, you can increase the frequency to 4 GHz. In this mode, the device will begin to solve the most complex problems - even video editing will not cause problems, since the manufacturer managed to place the NVIDIA GeForce MX150 graphics adapter with a couple of gigabytes of GDDR5 memory inside its creation. But do not forget that with this kind of “overclocking” the laptop becomes more noisy - the cooling system needs to be worked hard.

The composition of this laptop includes 16 GB of RAM. The volume is good, but the standard to which it belongs confuses only LPDDR3. However, the laptop was not created for games, and in most applications, DDR4 memory would not bring a special increase in speed. A 512 GB solid-state drive is intended for data storage. It is unlikely that this will seem insufficient (unless you want to install a couple of computer games).

The laptop displays the image on a 13.3-inch IPS display. When you find out that it has 4K resolution, the price tag no longer seems too high. Interestingly, the LCD panel is covered with a protective glass from Corning, so it’s hardly worth waiting for scratches. One can not fail to note the fact that the screen is touch-sensitive - in some cases, this simplifies the management of the operating system.

A nice bonus is the microSD card slot. Seriously, many thin laptops no longer have a card reader, although absolutely every laptop computer used to have one.The buyer will also like two USB 3.1 ports, one of which is used to recharge the laptop. There was a place here for DisplayPort 1.2 - a socket that allows you to display the image on the monitor. Although why is it necessary when the laptop has such a chic, albeit a small screen? Well, to connect an external drive, you should use USB Type-C - this connector supports data transfer at speeds up to 5 Gb / s. On one of the ends of the computer, you can find a combined headset jack.

It is easy to guess that this laptop has support for the wireless standard Wi-Fi 802.11ac. To output sound, not only the aforementioned 3.5 mm jack can be used, but also Bluetooth 4.2.

The laptop HP Envy 13-ah0011ur includes a capacious four-cell battery. Its full charge can last for 10-14 hours of battery life, which can be considered an ideal result. A strong decrease in numbers can be seen only when the video card is activated. It remains to add that the thickness of the laptop is 14.9 mm.

Advantages

  • The webcam is supplemented by two microphones;
  • Relatively light weight (1.3 kg);
  • Nice appearance;
  • A good sound system consisting of four speakers;
  • Long battery life;
  • A decent number of connectors;
  • You can insert a microSD memory card;
  • Supports Wi-Fi 802.11ac and Bluetooth 4.2;
  • Built-in IPS-display with a resolution of 4K;
  • Large capacity SSD
  • There is a discrete graphics card;
  • A lot of RAM;
  • Comes with the operating system Windows 10 Home;
  • There is a fingerprint sensor.

Disadvantages

  • The processor does not seem powerful to everyone;
  • Many can not afford such a laptop.

Apple MacBook Early 2015

Rating: 4.7

Of course, in this rating one cannot fail to mention at least one “MacBook”. Apple has several very subtle solutions. The most interesting of them is the MacBook Early 2015. At least in our opinion. Yes, this is far from the latest model, which is clear by its name. But then they sell it for sane money, unlike new laptops released by Apple.

This model is a rare case when the manufacturer did not bother with the release of various configurations. Only one version is sold in Russia. It includes a decent 12-inch display, the resolution of which is 2304x1440 pixels. Of course, it does not support touch input - the Mac OS X operating system has not yet been trained to understand it. There is no trouble in this. It is known that Apple computer equipment is equipped with a convenient touchpad, thanks to which you do not even think about connecting a mouse. Continuing the conversation about the screen, it was created using IPS technology. This means that the picture is clearly visible from any angle. Well, the Intel HD Graphics 5300 graphics chip is responsible for processing the interface in applications and programs. Alas, there is no video card here, so it's better not to think about video editing. Like about games. But games on the "MacBook" - this is generally something from a number of fiction.

Perhaps the main advantage of this laptop is not even a screen, but an SSD-drive. Its volume is 512 GB. Very good for an "apple" laptop, sold for only 100 thousand rubles. This is definitely enough for any buyer. Still can not but rejoice the small weight of the device - it is only 920 grams. This is still one of the lightest laptops among those released by the company from Cupertino. As for the thickness, it does not exceed 13.1 mm.

Unlike most of the computers discussed in this article, MacBook Early 2015 uses passive cooling. This means that it does not make noise at all! The flip side of this solution is low power. The manufacturer had to integrate a dual-core Intel Core M here. This chipset does not really heat up, but its clock frequency is only 1.2 GHz. That is why in terms of speed, the laptop is quite inferior to other "MacBooks", especially those belonging to the Pro series.

The structure of this model includes 8 GB of RAM. To connect to the router, Wi-Fi 802.11ac is used - not bad for a device announced in 2015. Implemented here and support for Bluetooth 4.0. You can also connect a wired headset to the laptop - for this, a traditional 3.5 mm combo jack is used. And there is also an optical audio output - a rare guest in portable computers, used to output sound to speakers. As for connecting peripherals, only USB Type-C is used for this. This connector is high-speed, but I would like it to be not alone here.

Finally, you can not tell about the battery. It has decent power, so the battery life can reach eight to nine hours. Even with the upgrade of the operating system, this figure does not become smaller.

Advantages

  • There is an optical audio output;
  • Long battery life;
  • Bluetooth 4.0 and Wi-Fi 802.1.ac are supported;
  • Used a large SSD;
  • Excellent IPS display, albeit small in size;
  • Weight does not exceed 0.92 g.

Disadvantages

  • Few connectors
  • Still, far from the most affordable price tag;
  • No discrete graphics card;
  • Low power processor.

HP Specter 13-af000

Rating: 4.6

Another decent laptop model in our ranking. In shops you can find many modifications of the laptop - the last two digits differ in their name. Most often, this laptop is sold for all the same 100-105 thousand rubles. Although if you want to get the maximum opportunities, you will have to spend money on a top-end configuration, the cost of which can reach 140-160 thousand rubles. Let's find out exactly which components have such versions of the laptop.

First of all, the SSD-drive is noteworthy. Its volume is 1 TB! It seems that this is sufficient not only for working with documents, but also for containing a certain number of video files. However, even such an expensive laptop is not suitable for their installation. The fact is that there is no discrete "graphics". Well, the Intel Core i7-8550U processor by default runs at a clock frequency of 1.8 GHz. If you still need to solve a difficult problem in a short time, you can increase the frequency by using the appropriate setting in the BIOS. But the battery life in this mode will be drastically reduced, so it is recommended to connect the laptop to an outlet.

The operation of this laptop provides a four-segment lithium-ion battery. Capacity is not a record, which is explained by the thickness of the laptop, which is a ridiculous 10.4 mm. Nevertheless, a full charge of the battery is enough to work for nine to ten hours. Isn't it a miracle?

Despite its modest size, the weight of the HP Specter 13-af000 was 1.11 kg - as you can see, there are also lighter laptops in our rating. What influenced the final mass? First of all, an LCD display. It uses far from the simplest IPS-panel, which with a 13.3-inch diagonal is able to boast a full 4K resolution. Moreover, the screen is complemented by a touch layer! It turns out that the user can control the Windows 10 Home operating system not only with the touchpad and keyboard.

RAM affected the weight a bit. Here its volume is increased to 16 GB. The laptop would be even heavier if it had a video card. But instead, the Intel UHD Graphics 620 is used, embedded in the processor already mentioned. Its capabilities are more than enough to process the interface in 4K resolution. By the way, the picture can be displayed on the monitor. This is required if you want to consider it on a higher diagonal. A couple of Thunderbolt 3 sockets are used to display the image. But we still remember well the times when such an effective method was used only on Apple computers!

If we are talking about connectors, then such a thin laptop could not get a large number of them. In fact, for connecting peripherals you will only use USB 3.1 Type-C ports, located here in the amount of two pieces. On one of the ends you can find a combined headset jack. Well, among the supported wireless standards are Bluetooth 4.2 and Wi-Fi 802.11ac. This is a kind of standard for modern laptops belonging to the top-end price segment.

Advantages

  • Thunderbolt connectors available
  • Supports Wi-Fi 802.11ac and Bluetooth 4.2;
  • There is a configuration with a terabyte SSD;
  • Nice design and small thickness;
  • Decent battery life;
  • Available configuration with 4K-display;
  • A large amount of RAM;
  • Comes with Windows 10 operating system.

Disadvantages

  • No fingerprint scanner;
  • High price;
  • No discrete graphics card;
  • Noisy cooling system.

Lenovo IdeaPad 720s 13

Rating: 4.5

The Chinese company Lenovo at one time made a splash by buying the computer division of IBM. Since then, Lenovo laptops have been regularly updated. More and more advanced computers are emerging. However, they are not always worth the exorbitant money. For example, Lenovo IdeaPad 720s 13 can be bought for 50-90 thousand rubles, depending on the selected configuration. And in any case, you get an ultra-thin and very light laptop. No, no records are out of the question here. But 1.1 kg is not annoying at all when you carry a laptop to work. As for the thickness, it is 13.6 mm.

Interestingly, the most expensive versions of this model can be equipped with a fingerprint scanner. Or they may not have it - this moment must be clarified when making a purchase. And do not expect to get a device with top-end features. The relatively low price makes itself felt. For example, the SSD drive installed here will have a capacity of no more than 256 GB. Of course, this does not look like a problem, because in the future you can easily replace it. But putting a new processor into a laptop is impossible. That is why we do not recommend looking towards the basic configurations. They are based on the AMD Ryzen 5 2500U chipset. It seems to be a good processor, but nothing more. The Intel Core i7-7500 in older versions looks much more interesting - by default it works at a clock frequency of 2.7 GHz, much better coping with its tasks.

Different configurations may differ and the installed display. In the basic versions, you will find Full HD resolution, which will not surprise you. Well, the top options easily display a picture in 4K resolution. There is no discrete video card here, therefore video editing should not be done. And it’s better to refuse games.

What did the manufacturer save on? It could not do without it, because the Lenovo IdeaPad 720s 13 laptop costs by no means 100-150 thousand rubles, like some of the models discussed above. First of all, savings are noticeable on RAM, of which there is only 8 GB. But then it belongs to the DDR4 standard (we are talking about a top-end configuration). The rest of the laptop almost does not upset. Yes, it doesn’t sound very good (at least against competitors). But then it offers two USB 3.0 ports and one USB 3.0 Type-C. Thunderbolt 3 support is also not forgotten - displaying a picture on a 4K monitor will not be difficult. Well, for wireless connections, Bluetooth 4.1 and Wi-Fi 802.11ac modules are designed.

In a word, this laptop was not in vain in our rating. Not the biggest money is being asked for him. At the same time, you get a powerful dual-core processor, a full-fledged SSD drive, a wonderful display and a very thin metal case.

Advantages

  • There are versions with a fingerprint scanner;
  • Elegant design and small thickness;
  • A decent amount of USB connectors;
  • There is support for Thunderbolt;
  • Very long battery life;
  • Understands the standards of Bluetooth 4.1 and Wi-Fi 802.11ac;
  • There is a configuration with a 4K display;
  • Not very high cost;
  • Installed operating system Windows 10 Home.

Disadvantages

  • Many versions of the laptop have a not very powerful processor;
  • There is little constant and random access memory;
  • No discrete graphics card.

Xiaomi Mi Notebook Air 13.3 "2018

Rating: 4.5

For some time now, the famous Xiaomi company began to produce its laptops. As you know, this manufacturer has imperial manners. Therefore, do not be surprised that Xiaomi decided to enter into competition with the “MacBooks”. Xiaomi Mi Notebook Air has a similar design. This laptop is also very thin and light. The difference is that it uses the Windows 10 operating system. And do not even try to install Mac OS here, having obtained its image on the network! The fact is that some components simply do not have drivers written for an OS that is supported by Apple.

It should be noted that this is the cheapest member of our rating. It is unlikely that you will spend more than 60 thousand rubles on its purchase. Of course, even this price tag does not seem sane at first. But you compare it with how much they ask for a MacBook. Yes, even the competitors discussed above are priced much more expensive! But this does not mean that this laptop needs to forgive absolutely everything.

Let's start with the strengths of this device. The 13.3-inch display installed here cannot but rejoice. Yes, its resolution is only 1920x1080 pixels. But for many people this is enough. And we must not forget that such a resolution does not load the components too much. But they are not the most powerful here. You also need to pay attention to the wide viewing angles - not every mid-budget laptop can boast of this.

It is curious that the Chinese manufacturer has become generous with DDR4 standard memory. Confuses her volume - 8 GB. It also uses an average processor by modern standards - it is a quad-core Intel Core i5-8250U, clocked at 1.6 GHz. In short, Mi Notebook Air 13.3 "2018 with such components can be used as an office or home typewriter, but it is unlikely that it will be able to solve complex tasks.

Unlike most laptops reviewed here, Xiaomi has a discrete graphics card. It uses an NVIDIA GeForce MX150 with a couple of gigabytes of video memory. This adapter is enough to play "tanks" with medium graphics settings, which will definitely please some buyers. By the way, it was because of the video card that the weight of the laptop was a decent 1.3 kg. And this computer cannot be called particularly thin - the thickness reaches 14.8 mm. It's like two very plump tablets.

But back to the components. The Mi Notebook Air 13.3 "2018 includes a 256 GB SSD. If you do not get involved in games and downloading videos, then this will be quite enough. Among the connectors, you can highlight a couple of USB 3.0 and one USB Type-C, belonging to the same high-speed standard Alas, Thunderbolt is not supported by a laptop - the picture is output to a TV or monitor via an HDMI jack.

The laptop is running Windows 10. Access to the account is provided after scanning the fingerprint. Despite the rather large weight, the laptop uses not the most capacious battery. Ideally, its full charge lasts only 9 hours of battery life. In practice, the result will be even worse, especially if the video card is activated from time to time.

Advantages

  • There is a fingerprint scanner;
  • Everyone should like the design;
  • A decent number of connectors;
  • There is a discrete graphics card;
  • Good 13.3-inch IPS display;
  • RAM belongs to the modern standard;
  • Installed operating system Windows 10 Home.

Disadvantages

  • Not very long battery life;
  • Not the best sound;
  • Not a very large amount of solid state drive;
  • Not the biggest amount of RAM;
  • I would like a more powerful processor;
  • Weight could be less.

Conclusion

Now you know which laptops are the thinnest and at the same time workable. Please note that we spoke not only about models with the Windows operating system. We are not forgotten and MacBook. If you get the money for it, get ready to get used to the new hot keys and the changed interface. However, many of its Windows competitors are in no way inferior to it in terms of ease of use, and often they are noticeably cheaper.
