8 thinnest laptops

Review of the best according to the editorial board. On the selection criteria. This material is subjective and does not constitute advertising and does not serve as a purchase guide. Before buying, you need to consult with a specialist.

The world is no longer what it was a couple of decades ago. Now it makes no sense to carry a bulky laptop with you, the weight of which reaches several kilograms. Why, if thin laptops exist now? Yes, usually they do not have a discrete video card, but the capabilities of the graphics core, which is usually built into the processor, are enough for solving office tasks. As for the cost, it can be different – it all depends on the configuration of a particular model. Unfortunately, some ultra-thin laptops are not good for anything – they work slowly, and their design tells you to live long after a year of use. In order not to buy just such a model, check out our selection. It describes only the best laptops, the purchase of which is unlikely to disappoint.

Acer SWIFT 7

Rating: 4.9

Acer SWIFT 7

Looking for a cute laptop that is thin and light? In this case, you should be interested in opening our rating Acer SWIFT 7. At the time of release, it was definitely the thinnest laptop in the world. Its thickness was only 8.98 mm. At one time, even some tablet computers were much thicker! As for the weight, it is 1.13 kg. Not bad for a device with a 13.3-inch display, a full QWERTY keyboard and a very large lithium-polymer battery.

The screen of this laptop has a resolution of 1920×1080 pixels. Not a very high parameter. But it's perfect for watching some kind of YouTube videos or movies. Also, the lack of a 4K display here has a positive effect on performance. Even a dual-core processor Intel Core i5 operating at a clock frequency of 1.2 GHz is quite enough for all applications to open as quickly as possible, and their interface does not slow down at all. This speed is also facilitated by an SSD drive – it is on it that the files of the operating system and all programs are contained. The volume of the solid state drive is 256 GB. Not much, but enough for work. It's pointless to download games here.

As you might guess, such a thin laptop could not get a discrete graphics card at its disposal. Instead, it uses a graphics chip Intel HD Graphics 615, which occupies part of the chipset area. It is impossible to do video editing and solving other such complex tasks on such a laptop. But the interface Windows 10 and various programs is drawn without any problems.

The laptop includes 8 GB of RAM. The laptop also has a wireless module that understands the Wi-Fi 802.11ac standard. Thanks to this, you can avoid storing movies and other media data in the built-in storage. It is recommended to keep them on an external hard drive connected to the router – with the support of the aforementioned standard, you will definitely not experience problems with their playback. Also, an external HDD can be connected to the laptop itself using the USB 3.1 connector and the appropriate adapter.

Some people are used to displaying images from a laptop on a TV or monitor. Acer SWIFT 7 also allows you to do this, but under certain conditions. There is simply no HDMI connector here! Instead, it is proposed to use USB Type-C – as you know, in modern laptops it is he who is used to display pictures in high resolution. It is much easier to connect headphones here – for this, a traditional 3.5 mm combo jack is used. By the way, the device also supports Bluetooth – the headset – 'blue tooth' works without any complaints.

Such a small laptop could not have a huge battery at its disposal. Here, its capacity is 2770 mAh. However, even this battery lasts for 7-9 hours of battery life. The keyboard and a very comfortable touchpad are used as controls. Alas, the screen lacks a touch pad. But it is made using IPS technology, which indicates the maximum viewing angles.

It remains to add that this laptop has a few extra 'goodies'. Unfortunately, the buyer will not receive a GPS, but at least some kind of personal data protection will be a fingerprint scanner. There is also a slot for a SIM card, thanks to which access to the global web is provided even outdoors.

Advantages

  • Very good sound;
  • Minimum thickness;
  • The screen has maximum viewing angles;
  • There is support for LTE and Wi-Fi 802.11ac;
  • There is a decent size SSD;
  • Long battery life;
  • Fingerprint unlock available;
  • Low weight.

disadvantages

  • Very high cost;
  • A modest processor is used;
  • No discrete graphics card.

DELL XPS 13 9370

Rating: 4.8

DELL XPS 13 9370

Another very thin laptop that could not fail to get into our rating. It exists in several configurations. Basically, different versions have a different processor. But in any case, it will be an eighth generation chipset Intel. The budget variant will be powered by the Intel Core i5-8250U, which clocks up to 3.4 GHz. Well, the top version of the laptop is built on the basis of the Core i7-8650U – the frequency of its cores reaches the 4.2 GHz mark. In short, no matter what laptop you choose, it will definitely cope with running even the most difficult applications.

The thickness of this laptop in some places does not exceed 7.8 mm. Well, in the thickest place, this parameter is 11.6 mm. In short, this laptop cannot be called any thick. Its top cover houses a 13.3-inch IPS display. The screen resolution, again, differs depending on the configuration purchased. If you are only going to work with documents, then the permission Full HD is enough for you. Well, for comfortable viewing of modern films, you need an option with a 4K display.

How else are different configurations different? Of course, the amount of RAM – it varies from 4 to 16 GB. Moreover, the smallest option leads to problems when launching a large number of applications. The operating system may also differ – you can choose from Windows 10 Home and Windows 10 Pro. However, there are also cheaper laptops that operate with free Ubuntu – it is assumed that the user will install the operating system from Microsoft on his own, if such a need arises at all.

In such a thin laptop, there is simply no room for a hard drive. Because of this, the manufacturer had to build an SSD. The inexpensive configuration uses a 128 GB drive. And the more expensive the purchased version, the more volume awaits you – in theory you can buy a DELL XPS 13 9370 with a terabyte SSD!

Of course, there is no video card here – graphics processing is entrusted to Intel UHD Graphics 620. If you want, you can display the image on the monitor using Thunderbolt 3 and USB-C connectors. It is a pity that there was no room for a couple of USB 3.0 ports – you will have to use a splitter to connect peripherals.

Now more and more electronic devices are equipped with a fingerprint scanner. There is also a DELL XPS 13 9370 – you should look for it in the power button. Also, the product is capable of boasting high-quality acoustics. For some, this sound will be enough even if you watch a movie! There are no problems when organizing video communication – the camera shoots a picture in 720p resolution, and the sound is picked up by as many as four microphones! The connection to the router is carried out using the Wi-Fi 802.11ac module – the speed is impressive. There is another wireless module here – it is used to interact with Bluetooth – devices.

This is arguably one of the best laptops in the world at the time of this writing. It is not for nothing that he received several awards at the CES 2018. However, the top configurations of this laptop are expensive – Russian online stores ask for more than 100 thousand rubles.

Advantages

  • Any configuration has a powerful processor;
  • There are versions with more RAM;
  • SSD is used for data storage;
  • The top configuration has a 4K display;
  • There is a fingerprint scanner;
  • Sounds good;
  • Built-in four microphones;
  • Wireless standards Bluetooth 4.1 and Wi-Fi 802.11ac are supported.

disadvantages

  • No discrete graphics card
  • Not a very large number of connectors;
  • Many cannot afford it.

Acer SWIFT 5

Rating: 4.7

Acer SWIFT 5

Our rating started with a top-end laptop manufactured by our own company Acer. It has a terribly high cost – on par with high-performance MacBooks. Do you want to buy something more affordable, but no less subtle? In this case, you should consider the option of buying another laptop from Acer – it received the name SWIFT 5.

This computer was released quite recently. So far, it is present only in a few Russian online stores. However, there is no doubt that in the future the laptop will become more widespread. People will definitely like a device that weighs less than one kilogram. Also, buyers will appreciate the IPS-display installed here, which has a resolution of 1920×1080 pixels. You can look at it from any angle. Well, the backlight brightness at 300 nits allows you to enjoy the picture even outdoors when the sun is shining. In this case, the screen turned out to be quite large – its diagonal is 15.6 inches. The laptop itself is not very large. The fact is that the side frame is 5.87 mm wide – this is what allowed to reduce the size of the device. By the way, there are even more compact versions of a laptop – their screen has a diagonal of 14 inches. Interestingly, the resolution is the same. It turns out that such configurations have a higher pixel density.

The laptop itself is 14.6mm thick. Not a record, but earlier I had only dreamed of such a parameter. In fact, a laptop is comparable to two moderately thin tablets. But here is not only a high-quality screen, but also a comfortable keyboard! By the way, the weight of the device depends on the configuration. There are a little less than two dozen of them! The manufacturer has tried to create products for both thrifty buyers and those who require high power. The first ones should be interested in the version that is supported by Linux. In the future, you can easily install the familiar Windows 10 yourself. Also, relatively inexpensive versions Acer of SWIFT 5 cannot boast of a particularly powerful processor. But a dual-core Intel Core i5-7200U is enough to solve most of the most complex tasks. It is clear that editing video on such a laptop is impossible. But this is not the problem of the processor, but of the lack of a discrete video card. And what thin laptop can you use for video editing?

It's nice that even inexpensive versions Acer of SWIFT 5 got 8 GB of RAM at their disposal. Well, more productive options have twice the volume, and even the DDR4 standard. As for the permanent memory, of course, there is no hard disk here. Instead, a solid state drive is used, the volume of which is either 256 or 512 GB.

Unfortunately, this laptop is by no means powerful. At his disposal is a relatively modest processor by modern standards. The specific chipset model depends on the selected configuration. But even the most expensive option won't offer anything other than the Intel Core i7-8565U – a quad-core processor running at 1.8 GHz. However, its capabilities are enough for the stable functioning of the operating system and most of the applications currently existing. However, such a laptop is definitely not worth buying if you intend to use it for 3D modeling and other complex tasks. This is an office machine, nothing more.

I am glad that modern laptops are getting high-speed communications. For example, Acer SWIFT 5 can connect to the Internet using the Wi-Fi 802.11ac standard. Its capabilities are sufficient even for watching a 4K movie contained on an external hard drive connected to the router. It also implements support for the 'blue tooth', thanks to which you can listen to music in Bluetooth – headphones. But there is no SIM card slot in this laptop. Alas, you will not be able to access the Internet on the street if you are not at that moment in the range of a Wi-Fi network.

I am glad that even this laptop received a fingerprint scanner. It seems that in the future absolutely all laptops will be equipped with such a sensor. And the manufacturer of this device has not forgotten about USB 3.0 ports – there are exactly two of them. Also at one of the ends you can find a USB Type-C socket. Of course, the ability to display images on a monitor or TV has not gone anywhere either. Well, to connect a wired headset, a 3.5 mm so-called combo jack is used.

It remains to add that the autonomous work of this representative of our rating is provided by a 4670 mAh battery. Not a bad figure. It is already clear from it that this is still not the thinnest laptop among the existing ones on the market. It is assumed that a full charge will last for 8-9 hours of operation. In practice, it all depends on what exactly you do.

Advantages

  • Almost all configurations weigh 999 grams;
  • Long battery life;
  • Elegant design;
  • Supplied with operating system Windows 10 Home;
  • The number of connectors is not minimal;
  • There is a fingerprint scanner;
  • 512GB SSD version available;
  • Decent amount of RAM;
  • Good IPS display with Full HD resolution.

disadvantages

  • The processor is not particularly powerful;
  • The cost will not suit everyone;
  • No discrete graphics card.

HP Envy 13-ah0011ur

Rating: 4.7

HP Envy 13-ah0011ur

It is a rare occasion when we recommend purchasing any particular laptop configuration. The laptop hidden under the HP Envy 13-ah0011ur index is distinguished not only by its small thickness, but also by long battery life. And this model also received a solid amount of memory. The product also has other advantages, which we will now describe in all details.

Despite the price tag reaching 100 thousand rubles, this computer cannot be called particularly powerful. It was based on the Intel Core i7-8550U – a quad-core processor running at 1.8 GHz. However, it should be noted that in our article we are talking exclusively about the autonomous use of the laptop. If you connect this laptop to an outlet, you can increase the frequency to 4 GHz. In this mode, the device will begin to solve the most difficult problems – even video editing will not cause problems, since the manufacturer managed to place an NVIDIA GeForce MX150 graphics adapter with a couple of gigabytes of GDDR5 memory inside its creation. But do not forget that with this kind of overclocking, the laptop becomes more noisy – the cooling system needs to work hard.

This laptop comes with 16 GB of RAM. The volume is good, but only the standard to which it belongs is confusing – this is LPDDR3. However, the laptop was not created for gaming, and in most applications DDR4 memory would not bring much speed up. A 512 GB solid state drive is designed for data storage. This is unlikely to seem enough (unless you want to install a couple of PC games).

The laptop displays the image on a 13.3-inch IPS-display. When you find out that it has 4K resolution, the price tag does not seem too high. Interestingly, the LCD panel is covered with a protective glass from Corning, so you shouldn't expect any scratches. It should also be noted that the screen is touch-sensitive – in some cases this simplifies the management of the operating system.

A nice bonus is the microSD card slot. Seriously, many thin laptops no longer have a card reader, although every laptop used to have one. The buyer will also like the two USB 3.1 ports, one of which is used to recharge the laptop. There was also a place for DisplayPort 1.2 – a jack that allows you to display an image on a monitor. Although why is this necessary, when the laptop has such a gorgeous, albeit small, screen? Well, to connect an external drive, you should use USB Type-C – this connector supports data transfer at speeds up to 5 Gb / s. On one more end of the computer you can find a combined headset connector.

It is easy to guess that this laptop has support for the wireless standard Wi-Fi 802.11ac. For sound output, not only the aforementioned 3.5mm jack can be used, but also Bluetooth 4.2.

The HP Envy 13-ah0011ur laptop includes a capacious four-cell battery. Its full charge can last for 10-14 hours of battery life, which can be considered an ideal result. A strong decrease in numbers can be seen only when the video card is activated. It remains to add that the thickness of the laptop is 14.9 mm.

Advantages

  • The webcam is supplemented by two microphones;
  • Relatively light weight (1.3 kg);
  • Nice appearance;
  • Good audio system with four speakers;
  • Long battery life;
  • Decent number of connectors;
  • You can insert a microSD card;
  • Wi-Fi 802.11ac and Bluetooth 4.2 standards are supported;
  • Integrated IPS display with 4K resolution;
  • Large amount of SSD storage;
  • There is a discrete graphics card;
  • Lots of RAM;
  • Supplied with operating system Windows 10 Home;
  • There is a fingerprint sensor.

disadvantages

  • The processor will not seem powerful to everyone;
  • Many people cannot afford such a laptop.

Apple MacBook Early 2015

Rating: 4.7

Apple MacBook Early 2015

Of course, in such a rating, one cannot fail to mention at least one MacBook. The assortment Apple has several very subtle solutions. The most interesting of them is the MacBook Early 2015. At least in our opinion. Yes, this is far from the most recent model, which is clear from its name. But on the other hand, it is sold for sane money, in contrast to new laptops manufactured by forces Apple.

This model is a rare case when the manufacturer did not bother with the release of different configurations. Only one version is sold in Russia. It includes a decent 12-inch display with a resolution of 2304×1440 pixels. Of course, it does not support touch input – the operating system Mac OS X has not yet been trained to understand it. There is no problem with that. It is known that computer technology Apple is equipped with the most convenient touchpad, thanks to which you will not even think about connecting a mouse. Continuing the conversation about the screen, it was created using IPS technology. This means that the picture is clearly visible from any angle. Well, the graphics chip Intel HD Graphics 5300 is responsible for processing the interface in applications and programs. Alas, there is no video card here, so it's better not to think about video editing. As well as about games. But the games on the 'MacBook' are generally something of a fantasy.

Perhaps the main advantage of this laptop is not even a screen, but an SSD-drive. Its volume is 512 GB. Not bad for an Apple laptop selling for only 100,000 rubles. This will definitely be enough for any buyer. The small weight of the device is still good news – it is only 920 grams. It is still one of the lightest notebooks produced by the Cupertino company. As for the thickness, it does not exceed 13.1 mm.

Unlike most computers discussed in this article, the Early 2015 MacBook uses passive cooling. This means that it does not make any noise at all! The downside of this solution is low power. The manufacturer had to integrate a dual-core Intel Core M. This chipset doesn't really heat up, but its clock speed is only 1.2 GHz. That is why, in terms of performance, the laptop is quite inferior to other MacBooks, especially those belonging to the Pro series.

This model includes 8 GB of RAM. Wi-Fi 802.11ac is used to connect to the router – not bad for a device announced in 2015. Support for Bluetooth 4.0 is also implemented here. You can also connect a wired headset to your laptop using the traditional 3.5 mm combo jack. And there is also an optical audio output – a rare guest in laptop computers, used to output sound to speakers. As for connecting peripherals, only USB Type-C is used for this. This connector is high-speed, but I wish there was more than one here.

Finally, one cannot but tell about the battery. It has decent power, thanks to which the battery life can reach eight to nine hours. Even with the update of the operating system, this figure does not decrease.

Advantages

  • There is an optical audio output;
  • Long battery life;
  • Bluetooth 4.0 and Wi-Fi 802.1.ac are supported;
  • A large SSD is used;
  • Excellent IPS display, albeit small;
  • Weight does not exceed 0.92 g.

disadvantages

  • Few connectors;
  • Still, far from the most affordable price tag;
  • No discrete graphics card
  • Low-power processor.

HP Specter 13-af000

Rating: 4.6

HP Specter 13-af000

Another decent laptop model in our ranking. In stores, you can find many modifications of the laptop – the last two numbers differ in their name. Most often, this laptop is sold for the same 100-105 thousand rubles. Although if you want to get the most of the features, you will have to spend money on a top-end configuration, the cost of which can reach 140-160 thousand rubles. Let's find out what kind of components such laptop versions have.

First of all, attention is drawn to the SSD-drive. Its volume is 1 TB! It seems that this is enough not only for working with documents, but also for the content of a number of video files. However, even such an expensive laptop is not suitable for mounting them. The point is that there are no discrete 'graphics' here. Well, the processor Intel Core i7-8550U runs at 1.8 GHz by default. If you still need to solve a difficult problem in a short time, you can increase the frequency using the appropriate setting in B IOS. But the battery life in this mode will be sharply reduced, so it is recommended to connect the laptop to an outlet.

The operation of this laptop is provided by a four-segment lithium-ion battery. The capacity is not a record, which is explained by the thickness of the laptop, which is a ridiculous 10.4 mm. However, a full charge of the battery lasts for nine to ten hours. Well, isn't it a miracle?

Despite its modest size, the HP Specter 13-af000 weighs 1.11 kg – as you may have noticed, there are also lighter laptops in our rating. What influenced the final mass? Primarily an LCD display. It uses far from the simplest IPS panel, which, with a 13.3-inch diagonal, is capable of boasting a full 4K resolution. Moreover, the screen is supplemented with a touch layer! It turns out that the user can control the operating system Windows 10 Home not only with the touchpad and keyboard.

The RAM also affected the weight a little. Here its volume is increased to 16 GB. The laptop would be even heavier if it had a graphics card. But instead, the graphics core Intel UHD Graphics 620 is used, embedded in the already mentioned processor. Its capabilities are more than enough to handle the interface in 4K resolution. By the way, the picture can be displayed on the monitor. This is required if you want to view it on a higher diagonal. A couple of Thunderbolt 3 sockets are used to display the image. But we still well remember the times when such an effective method was used only in computers Apple!

Speaking of connectors, such a thin laptop could not get a large number of them. In fact, to connect peripherals, you will only use the USB 3.1 Type-C ports, located here in the amount of two pieces. On one more end, you can find a combined headset jack. Well, among the supported wireless standards are Bluetooth 4.2 and Wi-Fi 802.11ac. This is a kind of standard for modern notebooks belonging to the top price segment.

Advantages

  • There are Thunderbolt connectors;
  • Wi-Fi 802.11ac and Bluetooth 4.2 standards are supported;
  • Configurable with a terabyte SSD;
  • Nice design and small thickness;
  • Decent battery life
  • Configurable with 4K display;
  • Large amount of RAM;
  • Supplied with operating system Windows 10.

disadvantages

  • No fingerprint scanner;
  • High price;
  • No discrete graphics card
  • Noisy cooling system.

Lenovo IdeaPad 720s 13

Rating: 4.5

Lenovo IdeaPad 720s 13

A Chinese company Lenovo once made a splash by purchasing a computer division IBM. Since then, laptops Lenovo have been regularly improved. More and more advanced computers are being born. However, they do not always cost prohibitive money. For example, Lenovo IdeaPad 720s 13 can be purchased for 50-90 thousand rubles, depending on the selected configuration. And in any case, you get an ultra-thin and very light laptop. No, we are not talking about any records here. But 1.1 kg is not at all annoying when you carry your laptop to work. As for the thickness, it is 13.6 mm.

Interestingly, the most expensive modifications of this model can be equipped with a fingerprint scanner. Or they may not have it – this moment must be clarified when making a purchase. And don't expect to get a top-end device. The relatively low price makes itself felt. For example, an SSD installed here will have a storage capacity of no more than 256 GB. Of course, this does not look like a problem, because in the future you can easily replace it. But putting a new processor into a laptop is impossible. That is why we do not recommend looking towards basic configurations. They are built around the AMD Ryzen 5 2500U chipset. It seems to be a good processor, but nothing more. Intel Core i7-7500 in older versions looks much more interesting – by default it operates at a clock frequency of 2.7 GHz, much better at coping with its tasks.

Different configurations may differ in the installed display. In basic versions, you will have permission Full HD, which will not surprise you with anything. Well, the top-end options easily display a picture in 4K resolution. There is no discrete video card here, so you should not do video editing. And it is better to refuse games.

What did the manufacturer save on? It could not do without it, because the laptop Lenovo IdeaPad 720s 13 costs not 100-150 thousand rubles, like some models discussed above. First of all, the savings are noticeable on the RAM, of which there is only 8 GB. But it belongs to the DDR4 standard (we are talking about the top-end configuration). The rest of the laptop is almost not upset. Yes, it doesn't sound very good (at least compared to the competition). But it does offer two USB 3.0 ports and one USB 3.0 Type-C. Thunderbolt 3 support is also not forgotten – displaying a picture on a 4K monitor is not difficult. Well, for wireless connections there are modules Bluetooth 4.1 and Wi-Fi 802.11ac.

In a word, this laptop was included in our rating for a reason. They ask for not the most money. With that, you get a powerful dual-core processor, full SSD storage, a wonderful display, and a very thin metal case.

Advantages

  • There are versions with a fingerprint scanner;
  • Elegant design and low thickness;
  • Decent number of USB ports
  • There is support for Thunderbolt;
  • Extremely long battery life;
  • Understands Bluetooth 4.1 and Wi-Fi 802.11ac standards;
  • There is a configuration with a 4K display;
  • Not very high cost;
  • The operating system Windows 10 Home is installed.

disadvantages

  • Many versions of the laptop do not have a very powerful processor;
  • Little permanent and random access memory;
  • No discrete graphics card.

Xiaomi Mi Notebook Air 13.3 '' 2018

Rating: 4.5

Xiaomi Mi Notebook Air 13.3 '' 2018

For some time now, the famous company Xiaomi also began to produce its laptops. As you know, this manufacturer has imperial manners. Therefore, it should not be surprising that Xiaomi decided to compete with MacBooks. Xiaomi Mi Notebook Air has a similar design. This laptop is also very thin and light. The difference is that it uses the operating system Windows 10. And don't even try to install it here Mac OS by getting its image on the network! The fact is that some components simply do not have drivers written for the operating system supported by the company Apple.

It should be noted that this is the cheapest member of our rating. It is unlikely that you will spend more than 60 thousand rubles on its purchase. Of course, even this price tag does not seem sane at first. But you compare it to how much they ask for a MacBook. Yes, even the competitors discussed above are priced significantly more expensive! But that doesn't mean that absolutely everything needs to be forgiven for this laptop.

Let's start with the strengths of this device. The 13.3-inch display installed here is good news. Yes, its resolution is only 1920×1080 pixels. But for many people this is enough. And we must not forget that this resolution does not overload the components too much. And they are not the most powerful here. You also need to pay attention to the wide viewing angles – not every mid-budget laptop can boast of this.

It is curious that the Chinese manufacturer is generous with DDR4 RAM. Confused by its volume – 8 GB. It also uses an average processor by modern standards – a quad-core Intel Core i5-8250U, clocked at 1.6 GHz. In a word, Mi Notebook Air 13.3 '' 2018 with such components can be used as an office or home typewriter, but it is hardly capable of solving complex tasks.

Unlike most notebooks reviewed here, the product Xiaomi has a discrete graphics card. It uses NVIDIA GeForce MX150 with a couple of gigabytes of video memory. This adapter is enough to play 'tanks' with medium graphics settings, which will definitely please some buyers. By the way, it is because of the video card that the laptop weighs a decent 1.3 kg. And this computer cannot be called particularly thin – the thickness reaches 14.8 mm. It's like two very plump tablets.

But back to the accessories. The Mi Notebook Air 13.3 '' 2018 includes a 256 GB SSD. If you do not get carried away with games and downloading videos, then this will be quite enough. Among the connectors are a couple of USB 3.0 and one USB Type-C, belonging to the same high-speed standard. Alas, Thunderbolt is not supported by a laptop – the image is output to a TV or monitor via an HDMI jack. As for the wireless method of transmitting and receiving data, standards Bluetooth 4.1 and Wi-Fi 802.11ac are used for this purpose.

The laptop is operated by Windows 10. Access to your account is provided after scanning your fingerprint. Despite the rather heavy weight, the laptop does not use the most capacious battery. Ideally, a full charge only lasts 9 hours of battery life. In practice, the result will be even worse, especially if the video card is activated from time to time.

Advantages

  • There is a fingerprint scanner;
  • Everyone should like the design;
  • Decent number of connectors;
  • There is a discrete graphics card;
  • Decent 13.3-inch IPS display
  • RAM belongs to the modern standard;
  • The operating system Windows 10 Home is installed.

disadvantages

  • Not very long battery life;
  • Not the best sound;
  • Not a very large amount of solid state drive;
  • Not the largest amount of RAM;
  • I would like a more powerful processor;
  • The weight could be less.

Conclusion

Now you know which laptops are the thinnest and most efficient ones. Please note that we talked not only about models with an operating system Windows. We haven't forgotten the MacBook either. If you can get the money for it, then get ready to get used to the new hotkeys and a redesigned interface. However, many of its Windows competitors are in no way inferior to it in terms of usability, while they are often much cheaper.
