By Digit | Price Updated on 06-Dec-2019

By definition, a Thin and Light laptop is one that measures under a centimetre in thickness and weighs under 1.5 kilogrammes. We're seeing an increase in the number of Thin and Light laptops sold in India of late. This is partly because more and more Mainstream laptops are encroaching the Thin and Light laptops' territory. More laptops are employing Intel's 8th Gen Core U-series processors and PCIe-based solid-state drives for speed and low power consumption. So, here is our list of India's top Thin and Light laptops.
