Having powerful computing devices is necessity but buying good looking laptops is a luxury. There are probably hundreds of different laptops on sale right now in the market but only some of them are recognizable and adorable on the first look. Let us have a look at such laptops.
1. Apple MacBook Air
Apple introduced the Macbook Air to the world with an agenda to turn the whole laptop design front upside down. The Macbook Air could fit in a Manila envelope. It was the thinnest fully functional laptop ever made but it was limited in resources. It is constructed using unibody aluminum and tapers along the edges of the device. It looks absolutely stunning with monolithic design, smooth curves, large glass trackpad and glowing apple logo at the back. There have been several hardware upgrades to the Macbook Air keeping the physical size intact. Now the Macbook Air comes with Intel Core i5 processor, 4GB of RAM (expandable to 8 GB of RAM) and up to 256 GB (expandable to 512 GB) of solid state storage. There are 2 screen size options with either 11 inch or 13 inch LCD displays. It weighs 1.4 KG and is one of the most light weight and thin laptops in the world.
2. Samsung Series 9
Samsung is back into the laptop business from last couple of years and the Series 9 laptops from their range are the most sophisticated ones. The Samsung series 9 notebooks come with exceptionally thin design and large 15 inch screen (there are lower screen size configurations available). The overall laptop outlook looks very elegant yet attractive with ash black finish. The laptop comes with Intel Core i7 processor, 8GB RAM, 256 GB SSD and a screen resolution of 1600 x 900 pixels. It weighs almost on the lines of Apple Macbook Air and can last similarly longer.
3. Lenovo Thinkpad X1 Carbon
Lenovo has a good history of making super rugged laptops under its Thinkpad brand which are designed specially corporate and official users. But they used to be very bland and non-attractive. Enter 2013, Lenovo came out with super elegant designs under the Thinkpad series. The Lenovo Thinkpad X1 Carbon, as the name suggests, has a wedge shaped carbon fibre body which is sleek and smooth to touch but at the same time, very sturdy. The interiors are quite powerful as well with the dual-core Intel Core i5, 4 GB of DDR3 RAM, 180 GB of SSD and 14 inch touchscreen display (1600 x 900 pixels). It comes with Windows 8 Pro which takes good advantage of the 10 point multitouch screen of the Thinkpad X1 Carbon.
4. Asus Zenbook UX31
The Asus Zenbook UX31 is probably one of the finest ultralight powerful laptop after the Macbook Pro and Macbook Air. It has nice concurrent circular design on the front with metal body on all the sides. The build quality is extremely good and it looks stylish as well. It looks almost similar to the ultra stylish Macbook Air from the inside with chiclet style keys and big multitouch touchpad. It comes with Intel Core i7 processor, 4 GB of RAM, 256 GB of SSD storage and a 13.3 inch full HD 1920 x 1080 pixels display. There is also a touchscreen version of this laptop which works better with Windows 8 operating system. It is also as light as Apple Macbook Air with a weight of 1.3 KG and can run for 4-5 hours continuously.
5. HP Envy 14 Spectre
The HP Envy Spectre is one of the most attractively designed HP laptops ever. It has the Macbook Pro style design with aluminum unibody design with use of Gorilla Glass chassis for screen protection. The whole system looks adorable and touch at the same time. It has a 1600 x 900 pixels fit in its 14 inch display which is decently sharp and produces good colors and brightness. Under the hood, it is equipped with a dual-core Intel Core i5 processor, 4 GB of RAM, 128 GB of SSD and Windows 8 operating system. The setup is quite fast and the battery has an ability to run the laptop for almost 9 hours as stated by HP. The whole laptop weighs 1.8 KG and thicker than other flagship ultra books but the battery life, design and build quality makes it worth the money. This HP laptop price is around INR 95,000 but is currently out of stock with almost all the retailers which hints us at a new updated model.
There are more upcoming stylish laptops in all the brands but only some of them come with good build quality. So you have to choose a laptop which not only looks good but also has good build quality and durability.
