Head to http://www.amazon.com/Best-Sellers-Computers-Accessories-Laptop/zgbs/pc/565108 and see the ultrabooks there.
About that freeze. ALL PCS I know of do make you wait a second or two while an app loads. Is that the problem? If so, you may want to avoid PCs for such work?
I am a blogger and a writer mostly using old macbook pro. My computer does a good job, but it's big and heavy, getting old, and it's also the only computer I have. I want to leave it home and look into getting a new laptop to take with me when I work. Here is what I need:
- a *light* computer
- backlit keyboard (working in dim-lit cafes can be very hard)
- good battery life (at least 4 hours running Chrome with over 20 tabs, including videos
- unibody keyboard, if possible.
- 13" screen size. 11 is too small for me, 15 becomes to heavy and big.
Obviously, the computer I'm looking for would be a macbook air, but these are very expensive. I'm looking for something cheap, maybe even used.
What can help is that I don't need the best and newest computer; far from it. I just need it to be able to run Chrome and not freeze when I'm loading some photo editing app.
So, any suggestions?
