With many mainstream laptops now taking on a thin and light form factor, it makes sense to go in for a model that weighs under 1.6 kilogrammes, especially if you see yourself working a lot on the move. These laptops generally come with good battery life, good performance, and a bright display.

Apple MacBook Air

The 2017 MacBook Air may have a successor with a Retina display but that does not make it irrelevant in the Thin and Light laptop market. This particular variant is powered by an Intel 5th Gen Core i5 CPU with 8GB of RAM, which is sufficient for everyday computing and heavy browsing. The 128GB solid-state storage on the inside is enough for you to access your most important documents and files quickly. At 1.35 kilogrammes, the MacBook Air is light on your hands and shoulder.

Mi Notebook Horizon Edition 14

One of the things you end up sacrificing while buying lightweight laptops is a good battery backup, and that’s what this Mi laptop solves. It is said to deliver 10 hours of battery backup on a single charge under optimal use. This makes it a great machine to work on the go. Moreover, it weighs just 1.35kg, making it even more convenient for frequent travellers. Under the hood, it has an 8GB RAM and a fast 512GB SSD, along with the flagship 10th Gen i7 processor. With such solid specs on paper, the laptop should be able to churn out good performance under most use-case scenarios. Finally, it sports a nearly bezel-less FHD display measuring 14-inch, through which should add up to the overall user experience.


This laptop from AVITA sports a fingerprint reader, enabling you to add an extra layer of biometric security to the device. The laptop should deliver solid performance for the majority of the tasks you’d want a thin and light laptop to do. It runs on a 10th Gen i5 processor coupled with a 512GB SSD and an 8GB RAM. It has a 14-inch FHD display which should deliver a good viewing experience. The thin and stylish laptop weighs only 1.25kg, making it an easily portable device. Finally, it packs a punch in the battery department as the company claims the laptop provides a backup of 10 hours on a single charge.

ASUS VivoBook Ultra K14

Here is a laptop from Asus that has a fast internal memory system - a 512GB NVMe SSD - which should deliver a fast performance even while working with heavy files and software. It runs on a 10th Gen i3 processor and has 4GB of RAM, which should ideally aid the laptop to run all the basic tasks. It sports a 14-inch FHD LED-backlit display that supports a refresh rate of 60Hz, which should deliver smooth visual output with bright and vivid colours. Thanks to the thin and compact body-frame of the laptop, it only weighs 1.4kg, which should make it easy for you to carry it around. The laptop delivers a battery backup of six hours on a single charge, as per company claims.
