The need for good Laptop Reviews is increasingly pressing, especially as technology and the industry that surrounds it changes at a lightning pace. Smartphones with touch screens are just about the latest thing to hit the scene, with Apple’s iPhone 4 having taken the world by storm and forcing other phones to adopt its design. A few years ago, touch screen laptops from other manufacturers just couldn’t compete, but now that the i7 processor from Apple is in the iPhones, manufacturers are scrambling to get a piece of this huge market. The result is that you’ll find reviews for different models of laptops all over the place – from both reviews that stress how good these systems are, and more general reviews where consumers try them out to see if they work for their individual needs. Here’s a look at the types of laptops, you’re likely to find:
As you can probably tell from the name, the Lenovo Yogabook is one of the first ultra-portable laptops to come out of China, and it’s also one of the best ones available right now. It has a powerful hardware specification and a beautiful design, but what really sets it apart is its keyboard, which is a little larger than most mainstream laptops’ keyboards. The biggest difference it has from other similar systems is the keypad – it’s large and completely touch sensitive, allowing you to use it like a physical keyboard, instead of relying on the on-screen keys. A strong point of the Yogabook is the built-in battery, which promises to increase the laptop’s life-span considerably.
If you want the smallest laptop possible, the Acer Swift 5 might not be right for you. At just 2.5 inches, the Swift 5 isn’t very portable, and it’s not particularly powerful, despite boasting a quad-core Intel i5 processor. The keyboard is also smaller than many other laptops, making it difficult to type using the trackpad. Battery life on the Acer Swift 5 isn’t bad, but it isn’t anywhere near as long as some of the other options on the market, either. Overall, if you need a small laptop that offers solid performance and great battery life, you should probably avoid the Acer Swift 5 because it doesn’t live up to its massive marketing campaign.
