I had a couple of reviews on ultra-portable 13.3 inch mini laptops in the last months.
Although these are not really netbooks, as they are a little bit bigger, i consider them the best choice if you want something more powerful than a standard netbook, but still compact, light and with a decent price.
So, you can consider this a netbook vs laptop shootout, showing you how am 11.6 onch netbook feels next to a 13.3 incher. Spoiler: while overall more compact and lighter, there’s no huge difference in terms of size and weight between the two.
That’s why I’ve set up a mini photo-shoot to point the size differences between the Asus UL30A 13.3″ mini laptop and the Asus 1101HA 11.6″ netbook .
Photos just below.
As you can see, the laptop is not a lot bigger and is in fact slimmer. Weight difference is around 0.5 pounds. So, if you’re worrying the 13.3 inch laptops will be less portable than a netbook, well, you shouldn’t be too concerned about that.
