First impression on unpacking the Q702 test unit was the solid feel and clean, minimalist styling.
Top rated ultraportable laptops: August 2011
- — 24 August, 2011 10:11
There's no doubt that Apple's MacBook Air is the ultraportable laptop of choice for many people. However, at the top of our top rated list is its main challenger: Samsung Series 9. It's slim, light, a joy to use, it has good speed and connectivity features, and its matte screen is just beautiful.
Our list also includes Fujitsu's, Sony's and Toshiba's great, 'no compromise' ultraportables, which have full-voltage CPUs and built-in optical drives. If you're a gamer, you'll want to check out the little Alienware M11x R3, which packs lots of graphics power in an ultraportable frame. If you're a business user looking for something small and solidly built, then HP's EliteBook 2560p should be right up your alley.
About our ratings: A star rating is awarded to a product in quarter increments from one star to five stars. The higher the star rating, the better the notebook. Notebooks are evaluated on performance, features, build quality, ease of use, battery life and value for money.
6 / 10
The M11x R3 is a little gaming laptop that you'll love. It looks good, it feels good and it performs very well. The only downside is that it's a little cramped due to its size.
