    Ultra Thin Laptops Review - Ultra Thin Criteria


    (Page 2 of 3 )

    Thatís right, there are a few other options that, while similar to the Air, can be run with a Windows-based operating system for those of you who are not quite ready to make the transition to a Mac just yet.

    Before we get a look at the models, I'll specify some criteria for what I am sure you will count as an ultra thin laptop, and what will not -- after all, there's no point in even having this little talk if we are not on the same page. So, without further ado here are the qualifiers for an ultra thin laptop.

    The Real Deal: It must be a real laptop. Your iPhone, Blackberry or Palm Pilot may seem like it is a tiny and light computer, but we both know that it is just not it. It has to be a real laptop, and come with a real keyboard to count.

    Lightweight: It has to come in at the three-pound mark or lighter. Well, I might make an exception for a marginally overweight model at 3.1 or 3.2 pounds, but thatís it, max.

    Worth the Cost: It has to be quality. If the machine is not worth the money that you would lay out for it, then I will not waste your time or your cash on it. A pretty face is essentially useless if it can not get the job done for you when you need it.

    Of course, now that you know what factors I will be using to judge these models, you should know what factor I will not be taking into account as a limitation. That factor is cost.

    Yes, I know that I was just ragging on the MacBook Air price tag, but to be brutally honest, the ultra thin laptop is not a place for a computer shopper with a budget issue. That being said, I also will not go directly to the most expensive of the choices just because they are costly, I know that you live in the real world, where bills have to be paid too.

    With that in mind, I have selected three lovely models for you to you to take a good look at before you go about making any decisions about which computer to buy and which to walk on by.
