Lightweight Laptops For The Road

By Butterboom Writers  /  March 6, 2009

Travel light AND look good, because you can!


Business laptops are getting lighter, sleeker and more powerful by the day.  We went around town to find the lightest laptops that does everything you need to work off your computer, go for meetings and travel with. We looked at processing speed, battery life and most importantly weight. Yes, because we don’t want to lug around heavy equipments when its really not necessary.    All 3 machines have Windows Vista Business Edition and Microsoft Office applications installed to handle word processing to presentations.  Below are 3 choices we love and can be found in most Fortress, Broadway and Chung Yuen Electrical stores.
