Usually the term "subnotebook" conjures up images of compromise. Subnotebooks are generally too thin to include a drive tray for CD-ROMs and DVDs, and their batteries die before the flight attendant can say, "It's OK to use your personal electronics now." But, Toshiba tells ZDNet executive editor David Berlind, the company thinks it has come up with a no-compromise design with the Portégé R500.
Much of this ThinkPad's design — and particularly the excellent keyboard — is traditional, but it packs plenty of up-to-date specs too: Core i7 CPU, hybrid discrete/integrated graphics, solid-state drive, USB 3.0 and a high-quality multimedia subsystem. All this makes for an expensive notebook, but it's one we're happy to recommend.
The EliteBook 8560w is a well-built 15.6in. mobile workstation that can be configured with top-notch components, making it ideal for CPU-, GPU- and memory-intensive workloads. It's not especially portable, though, and battery life is among its least impressive features.
The HP Folio 13 is a neatly designed business ultrabook that's solidly built and has a comfortable keyboard. However, there are only two USB ports, the screen is unimpressive and storage capacity is limited.
The Precision M6600 is a hefty investment and it won't win points for elegance. However, this is a solid and highly configurable mobile workstation that should perform well with a wide range of demanding workloads.
The Portégé Z830 is an impressive business ultrabook. Apart from the amount of flex in the lid, we like the slimline design and thoughtful ergonomics. Not everyone will appreciate the connectors on the back edge, though, and we'd have liked access to the battery.
HP's ProBook 5330m is nicely made, with a responsive keyboard, integrated mobile broadband and generally good performance. We'd have liked it even more with an optical drive, USB 3.0 and better battery life.
This 11.6in. ultraportable features the usual impressive ThinkPad build quality and exemplary keyboard. If you're seeking a small, portable and relatively affordable notebook and don't mind the absence of an optical drive, the ThinkPad X121e is well worth considering.
The Asus U46SV's 14in. screen could be more vibrant and less shiny; the discrete Nvidia GPU doesn't boost graphics performance as much as expected; and there's more flex in the lid than we'd like. This notebook's saving grace, however, is its excellent battery life.
Panasonic's 14in. Toughbook CF-53 is built for ruggedness and therefore relatively heavy. Its standout feature is great battery life. If you need a bigger screen, the 15.4in. Toughbook CF-52 is still available.
Dell's 13.3in. Vostro V131 looks striking, has a superb keyboard and delivers much-improved battery life over its predecessor. But the lack of an optical drive is annoying and a business-ready configuration doesn't come cheap.
Samsung's 600B5B is bulky, heavy and short on battery life for a notebook aimed at mobile professionals, and its 15.6in. screen is let down by moderate resolution. The sturdy chassis and separate number pad on the keyboard may appeal to some, though.
The TravelMate Timeline 8481T is a robust but slim 14in. notebook with impressive battery life. We'd have liked a higher screen resolution, though, and the keyboard has too much flex.
The Elitebook 8460p is a robust, if somewhat heavy, 14in. business notebook. We don't like the keyboard design, but the matte screen is superb. We also appreciate the range of off-the-shelf configurations, and the high-quality audio subsystem.
Dell's visually pleasing Vostro 3750 is a good desktop replacement contender for small businesses. It delivers solid, if not spectacular, performance and reasonable battery life for a 17.3in. system with dual integrated/discrete graphics and a conventional hard disk.
The highly configurable Latitude E6420 ATG's ungainly looks are underpinned by a solid chassis design. The screen and keyboard are both good, as is the battery life. We'd prefer integrated USB 3.0 rather than a modular option though.
