If you're tired of lugging around a large laptop, maybe an ultra thin model is in your future. These svelte sisters of larger notebooks, typified by Apple's MacBook Air, can save your shoulder and some hassle when traveling, while still allowing you to get real work done. One thing they probably won't save, however, is your wallet. Keep reading while we take a close look at three of these lightweight charmers.
The modern world's obsession with things that are thin can be seen almost everywhere. Despite the fact that the average woman in the US is a size 12, a plus-sized model is still a rare creature, never gracing the pages of most national magazines.
Since thin is the current aesthetic that is focused on by at least 90% of the world's population, and the makers of electronics do their selling to that population, it is not too shocking that computer manufacturers are also following suit and making thin all of the rage in the computer world.
To be both brutally honest and completely fair, however, when it comes to buying yourself a shiny new laptop, thin can be so much more than a beastly pageant. A thin laptop does have some distinct advantages to it. You can save yourself a lot of shoulder strain when you donít have to carry around tons of weight just to have a computer on hand. A smaller model is also easier to pack into a briefcase for the short trip or a suitcase for the long term.
So as it turns out, there may be some valid reasons for giving some preferential treatment to the thin, at least in the world of electronics. Besides, of course, for the cool factor. Donít believe in the cool factor? Well, just think back to those days of yore when the MacBook Air first came out.
During that time, if you were anywhere near to an Apple store, you could see throngs of people staring at the display model through the glass with a look of longing, and -- dare I say it? -- a twinge of sorrow in their eyes. Back then, getting time with the store demo model or models meant a very notable wait. So there is no denying that an ultra thin device can strike a cord of lust into the hearts of even the most cynical and battle-hardened of geeks.
However, the MacBook Air, as cool as it may be comes with an equally lofty price tag, which few of us can really afford to shell out. Luckily, we are not here today to talk about how sad we are not to have a MacBook Air, though I am sure there is a support group for that somewhere. We are here to talk about other laptops that fit into this arena of the light weights.
