Best Small Laptop



Here at Small Laptops Guide, we are often asked which is the best small laptop? With so many small laptops and netbooks on the market nowadays, answering this question can become difficult. All the big manufacturers have now added their own machine into the equation and finding the right one can be confusing. We hope our free advice will help in your decision making.

The best small laptop is always going to be different for each person based on various criteria. Usually the most important is price. Small laptops range from as low as £100 and some are over £1,000. Does this mean you have to spend £1,000 to get the best small laptop? The answer is no. From our experience the best all round netbooks are in the £250 – £350 price range. Check reviews on a machine before you buy. On the menu on the left we have added the top ten latest small laptops. This is a carefully hand picked list based on our testing of the machines listed. We would advise any small laptop buyer to check the machines on this list and read our review of each pc.

We have added the latest small laptops to our shop so feel free to visit and check. Size and weight are also factors to consider. The size of netbook screens varies from machine to machine usually ranging from 7 inches to 11 inches. Personal preference will determine what size will suit you as some people find using a 7 inch machine to be difficult. Weight is usually around 1kg. Look out for reviews mentioning the keyboard, how easy is typing? are the keys laid out well in the space available? Battery Life is also another specification which should be taken into account. The best small laptops have a battery life of over 5 hours. This gives users plenty of time to carry out the tasks they want without having to find a plug point. Think about where you intend to use the netbook before you buy and whether power points will be easily accessible.

When looking at the specifications look for small laptops with more than 1GB of RAM and as large a hard drive as possible. Many now come with over 60GB as standard. The best small laptops all feature the Intel Atom Processor as standard so look out for this. Additional features such as webcam and colour should also be considered. Check the operating system as well before buying, the majority have Windows XP as standard although a number of machines are also loaded with Ubuntu Linux. Linux machines are often listed at a cheaper price. Small Laptops Guide would advise looking for a machine which covers all the above citeria, and you will be happy to know there are some we would highly recommend, purely for the fact that they can be classed as “the best small laptop”.

Lets discuss the options below, clicking on the name will take you to the corresponding page review.

1) Acer Aspire One The Acer Aspire One is our favourite small laptop. Coming packed with good spec, battery life, size, and price, the Acer Aspire One is a 5 star rating machine.

2) MSI Wind
The MSI Wind proves to be a good contender for the best small laptop crown based on its price. The MSI Wind is not only affordable and sleek, but also comes with good hard drive size and RAM memory.

3) Compaq 702
Another great netbook, the Compaq 702 is only let down by a battery life which is lower than its competitors.

Laptops Ratings

As part of our growing intention to provide an unbiased informational website with regards to netbooks, Small Laptops Guide have added a new laptops rating system to every page within the website. At the top of every page are ten stars and a rating out of ten. This rating system has been added so that users who visit us are able to give their own opinions on the latest small laptops on the market. This means that YOU are able to share your opinion with the World on any of the laptops we have reviewed. Maybe you disagree, maybe you have an opinion to add, our new laptops ratings system allows you to share your thoughts.

At the top of each page you can see 10 yellow stars and below that an overall rating based on user generated clicks. By clicking on the relevant number of stars, you are able cast your vote and decide on the rating of the particular small laptop mentioned on the page. So for example, if you have used a particular laptop and have thought it was awful, a really bad machine, and would not recommend it to anyone, then a low rating would be appropriate. If however, the laptop was the best you had ever used and you wanted to let everyone know, then a high rating would be the way to go. Over the course of time, with many users adding their own opinion, we hope to provide a fair rating of the particular laptop.

When many sites carry out their system of laptop ratings, they will be adding a rating based on a review of a laptop. But how long have they used the netbook for when carrying out the review? An hour? A day? It’s difficult to say. Often they get the machine for 2 weeks, but even then this may not be enough to realise all issues. Only prolonged use gives you a full idea of whether the laptop computer is worth the money you paid for or not. Actual owners of a small laptop, who have spent their own hard earned money on a machine are able to provide impartial and unbiased reviews.

When providing a small laptops rating, try to think about factors of the pc which appeal to you:
Is it worth the money?
How easy is the laptop to carry?
Is the keyboard easy to type with?
Does the small laptop have enough memory and a big enough hard drive?
Does the small laptop have a good battery life?

All these factors help to determine an overall rating of a laptop and give you a final rating. It’s good to share this with others so they can use the benefit of your knowledge. As well as providing laptop ratings, it’s also a good idea to provide your own review. The comments section on each page allows users to provide their own reviews. Even a few short lines can be helpful and can assist users in determining whether a laptop is worth buying or not. Look to try and be honest and provide info on both what’s good or bad about a particular small laptop. Remember, commenting only takes a few seconds but can ultimately help people save money or make sure they spend it wisely.
