In our “bigger is better” world, do you equate small laptops with computers that aren’t really up to snuff? If you do, you aren’t alone. But you are hugely mistaken! Believe it or not, there are some rather compact laptops out there today that are rewriting people’s definition of the word “small” with their uniquely “big” performance. And what’s even cooler about this is that small laptops capable of delivering high-end performance also offer a best-of-both-worlds experience that might surprise you. To find fabulous small laptops with performance capable of blowing doors on most systems out there today, check out our Intel Product Finder.
Size is in the eye of the beholder. If you’re used to doing all of your emailing, browsing, movie watching, and game playing on a 5-inch phone, moving up to an 11-inch laptop screen is like gaining some major real estate. But if you’re used to a desktop computer with a 20-inch monitor, switching over to a laptop with an 11-inch screen might have the reverse effect. Of course, you also have to take into consideration that many small laptops these days have HD displays that make up for the size difference in pure quality. That’s not the only benefit of having a smaller laptop.
Smaller can be better! Just because a laptop has a monster screen doesn’t mean it’s going to work out better for you. Here are a few examples to think over before deciding to go big or small.
Never judge a book by its cover, and never judge a laptop by its size. It’s what’s going on inside that really counts, and for that you have to have a close look at the guts of any laptop—big or small—before you decide it’ll perform the way you want it to. There are many big-screen laptops that are all show and no action, just as there are many small laptops that can rock your world. Always check processor size first, and you’ll never be disappointed by the performance of your laptop, regardless of its size.
