PCWorld: Roundup – Cheap & Light Laptops

While they’re not suitable for power users or gamers and lack optical drives, these models do offer reasonably strong performance and weigh in at under 3.5 lbs. Starting prices range from $350 to $450.

“Laptops are getting faster, more portable and cheaper as the back-to-school season rolls in. A new range of lightweight laptops from PC makers priced between US$400 to $600 are as portable as netbooks but offer much better performance.

These laptops come with screen sizes ranging from 11.6 inches to 13.3 inches and can offer long battery life, sometimes in excess of six hours. Performance-wise, these laptops are not slouches — they can play back high-definition videos and are capable of handling casual gaming.”
