Laptops are built for portability (duh). But there are laptops that are way more portable than others. Need some major spec’s? Need something to handle all your work? How about smooth gaming? Or how about something that can do the basics while being thin. Here are the top 12 best lightweight laptops that you can get right now, ranging from 2-in-1 laptops to traditional laptops.
Samsung Chromebook Pro
Released in May 2017, the Samsung Chromebook Pro is one of the best and most lightweight Chromebooks that you can get without breaking the bank. It weighs 2.38 lb and measures 0.51 inches thick. It’s armed with the Intel Core m3-6Y30, allowing you to perform tasks like video editing and word processing without running into performance problems.

Featuring a 12.3-inch display with a 2400 x 1600 resolution, this Chromebook includes a built-in pen and has a 360-degree hinge that allows you to turn it into a tablet for e-book reading and playing games.
