Thin and light laptops for frequent travellers

Most of us are quite used to travelling... or rather, waiting at airports, cafes and airport lounges. Whether it’s attending a quick online meeting, updating some files or making major code changes, work can pop up quite unexpectedly. While all laptops are portable, we all know that some just don’t fit that moniker at all. In this article we will look at those that really do qualify as frequent travel-friendly – they are extra slim, weigh far less than the average laptop, and are far more portable. Without further ado, let’s look at the lightest and thinnest laptops available on Amazon right now.

Mi Notebook 14

When it comes to thin and lightweight laptops, you generally will have to compromise on battery life, but with the Mi Notebook 14, that is out of the equation. As per company claims, you can enjoy a wireless backup of 10-hours on a single charge under optimal use. The lightweight body (1.3kg) and the impressive battery backup should make it ideal for frequent travellers. In other features, the laptop has 8GB RAM and a fast 512GB SSD memory, which should give you a smooth user-experience during multitasking. Add to this the robustness of the 10th Gen i5 processor, and you have yourself a laptop that you can rely on across various use-cases.

Lenovo IdeaPad Slim 3i

This laptop from Lenovo weighs just 1.85kg and has a thickness of less than 20-mm, making it a travel-friendly device. Another feature of this laptop that should please a frequent traveller is the fingerprint reader it has, helping you keep your laptop secure. This 15.6-inch laptop runs on a 10th Gen i5 processor, which is aided by an efficient memory system having 8GB RAM and 512GB SSD. This combination should be able to deliver a smooth user experience. Lastly, it supports fast-charging, claimed to give you 80% of battery backup in just one hour.

HP 15

If you work on multiple applications simultaneously, you definitely should go for a laptop with a robust internal memory system. This is what you get with the HP 15, as it has a 1TB SSD memory that is well-backed by 8GB RAM. The thin laptop weighs just 1.75kg and is said to deliver a battery backup of 12 hours on a single charge. Both these features should make it ideal for frequent travellers, as you can carry the laptop around with ease and work on the go as well. Finally, the 15.6-inch display of the laptop supports 250-nits of brightness, which should make it good enough for using outdoors.

ASUS VivoBook Ultra K14

Here is a budget-friendly laptop from Asus that ticks most boxes to make it a value-for-money product. To start with, it has a sleek and light body that is 18mm thin and weighs just 1.4kg. These features should make it ideal for users who work on the go and are regular travellers. Under the hood, it has a 10th Gen i3 processor, an 8GB RAM and a 512GB SSD that should deliver a reliable performance across most of the basic works. Similarly, you can expect a more-than-decent performance in terms of visual output from the 14-inch FHD display this laptop has.

ASUS VivoBook S14

If you work on the go on your laptop, then ensure that it has a bright display so that the sunlight’s glare does not put a hurdle. The ASUS VivoBook S14 solves this issue with its 14-inch FHD display that supports 300 nits of brightness to deliver a bright visual output. In terms of build, it has a lightweight and thin body that weighs just 1.3kg and is 16.5mm thick, making it easily portable. Additionally, the long battery backup of 24-hours (company claim) should aid the users who have little time to charge the laptop because of frequent travel.

Lenovo IdeaPad Slim 5i

Here is a thin and lightweight laptop from Lenovo that sports a 15.6-inch FHD display with a nearly bezel-less design to give you an immersive viewing experience. If you are into watching movies during your flights, then this laptop should do you justice. The lightweight body (1.65kg) of the laptop should make it easy for you to carry it around. Coming to the technical specs, the laptop runs on a powerful 11th Gen i5 processor efficiently supported by the memory combination of 8GB RAM, 1TB HDD and 256GB SSD. As a result, it’s likely to deliver a lag-free user-experience across most user conditions.
