At Digit, we consider laptops with thickness under an inch, and weight under 1.4kg to fall under the thin and light laptop. These laptops, despite their small size, pack a powerful punch. Premium thin and light laptops often come with the best processors in the market, speedy RAM and storage, and fantastic displays. They're capable of running the most demanding apps and perform tasks like photo and video editing with ease. Of course, the high-end specs and compact form factor don't come cheap. The most expensive laptop on our list of the best thin and light laptops costs around Rs 1.6 lacs, however, we've got some budget offerings as well, which are as low as Rs 48,000. In this list, we've got premium thin and lights like Apple's MacBook Air M2, the evergreen Dell XPS 13 Plus, and convertibles like the HP Spectre x360. Like we mentioned, we've got budget offerings as well, like the MSI Modern 14. The Acer Swift X and the Xiaomi NoteBook Pro 120G take the middle ground at around the 80K budget.

If someone asks you what are the best laptops to buy in terms of price-to-performance ratio, then the Apple MacBook Air is a very common recommendation. It is one of the world’s most popular thin and light laptops, and for good reason. Its reliable performance for day-to-day tasks while delivering class-leading battery life are just a few of the factors. With the introduction of Apple’s new M2 chips, the performance of the MacBook Air has only skyrocketed even further, making what was already a pretty powerful laptop into a spec beast when it comes to general usage. The new MacBook Air with the M2 chip comes with increased GPU cores, higher unified memory, a better 1080p webcam, and more improvements, all while being lighter than the M1 variant.
