All the laptops in the store aisles and webpages are distinctly different. Some may have their own look, others have more features. In this laptop guide, learn the differences between the types of laptops: from Ultrabooks to Netbooks, to Convertibles and Hybrids. Which are powerful enough for your needs, and which are a step-up from tablets?
Typically the creme de la creme of laptops, Ultrabooks are often more powerful than the average laptop. These computers are designed as fast, thin, and lightweight, for the ultimate in performance and portability. Most include an Intel i3, i5, or i7 processor to handle everything from word processing to video editing. Most have (solid state) SSD memory which is faster and lighter weight than bulky hard drives, as well as non-removable batteries to fit into its thin, lightweight profile.
