CNET editors choose and review the best thin and light laptops, notebooks, and ultrabooks.
Razer’s newest gaming laptop trades ultralong battery life for a fantastic screen and even better graphics. It’s a trade worth making: this is the best Razer gaming laptop, and the best thin gaming PC anywhere.
If the price is right, you don't need to look any further than the Samsung 830 series to upgrade your computer's internal storage to the best possible performance.
Sluggish performance is usually the deal breaker for an entry-level laptop, and though the single-core Compaq Presario CQ62-215DX is far from a speed merchant, its biggest flaw isn't a lack of power but rather the finger power it requires to depress the stiff mouse button.
The Compaq Presario CQ60-615DX covers the basics, and that's really all you can ask for from a $349 laptop.
Saddled with a processor that's bottom-tier, the CQ60-417DX is a budget laptop with the chassis of a superior machine but the guts of an inferior one.

The HP Compaq Presario SR5610f stirs together a mix of mediocre parts in a cookie-cutter chassis, brewing up an altogether yawn-worthy computer. The price tag falls in line with other budget systems that feature similar components, but we recommend spending $50 more on the Acer x3200, a well designed compact PC that can carry more weight across a wider variety of applications.
Small businesses on tight budgets take note: The HP Compaq 6910p laptop offers enterprise-level features and decent performance at a price that's lower than the competition.
The HP Compaq 6515b notebook computer offers enterprise-level features and decent performance at a price that's friendly to small business.
Though it's not a performance powerhouse, the HP Compaq nc6400 comes with enough speed, battery life, features, and design perks for the typical employee--at a lower price than some competitors.
Though it lacks the latest components, the low-price HP Compaq nc2400 strikes an appealing balance between features and portability for basic mobile users.
