We spent 25 hours on research, videography, and editing, to review the top selections for this wiki. Modern technology is truly a thing to behold. It seems like every year, our devices get smaller and smaller, thanks to advances in design and hardware. That's especially true of laptops, which have come a long way from the slow and bulky models of the past. The lightweight Ultrabooks and ultra-portable notebooks on this list, by contrast, are fast, thin, and perfect for any occasion. When users buy our independently chosen editorial picks, we may earn commissions to support our work. Skip to the best lightweight laptop on Amazon.
