These days, there's no need to get weighed down by your laptop. A thin and light model gives you the freedom to pop it in your bag and work comfortably wherever you are. And, these next-generation devices are as much about portability as they are power. Thinner than an inch, lighter than a couple of bags of sugar but still packing in the latest performance-boosting processors and speedy SSDs. Let's not forget their impressive battery life either. Let everyone else fight for a seat next to the plug socket in the coffee shop or on the train. You're good to go anywhere.
