Best Portable Notebooks of Year 2016

Surface Book

This Ultrabook comes with a 13.5-inch screen and rear-facing camera. Its futuristic design and seamless tablet separation are what’s attracting buyers. The Surface Book is the thinnest and most powerful laptop that has the ability to change between a notebook and tablet. This machine is a little heavier though because of the power it needs from an Intel Skylake processor, but nevertheless, it consists of 3:2 aspect ratio, which gives an ultimate gaming experience among other portable notebooks.

Dell Venue 11 Pro 7000

This 10.8-inch screen has a 2-megapixel camera, volume buttons, micro USB ports for power, reader slot line, and a series of magnetic ports. Portable notebooks comes in different sizes but Dell Venue is small sized but thicker than Surface Book. If you compare these two tablets, the Venue is a little lighter because of its smaller screen. However, it is the keyboards of Dell Venue 11 Pro that end up being heavier at 3.5 pounds.

Asus Zenpad S8

You can find two versions for this tablet; the 32GB and 64GB. If you’re looking for a powerful machine, you should opt for the 64GB version, but if you are on a budget and don’t need a camera with your tablet, the 32GB is the best one. The Intel Pentium processor is powerful enough, especially if you want to surf the Web with ease. To maximise your browsing experience, consider signing up for fibre broadband connection from a reputable Internet service provider. Unlike other portable notebooks, this will enhance your enjoyment as Zenpad comes with 2GB memory, quality speakers, and best of all, it is lightweight. The incredible ratio of 4:3 element makes this machine stand out from the rest.

Samsung Galaxy Note 10.1

In the range of various portable notebooks, the latest notebook release from Samsung is the Galaxy Note 10.1, a stylish machine that is currently selling like hot cakes. It comes with the S-Pen stylus included in a neat slot in the top right hand corner of the case as well as accompanying software for ease of use. All this might make you think that the device is thick and bulbous, but in fact, it feels slim and light thanks to its clever plastic construction. The screen size of this 10.1-inch tablet is 2560×1600 IPS, surrounded by the standard three-button controls. The chassis frame is made of metal with grooved band that houses the volume and power buttons. There are also dual speakers, SD and Micro USB slots. On the back of the machine, you can find a plastic cover with pretend stitches all the way around the corners. Although the Samsung Galaxy Note isn’t the most stylish looking device, it is still the cheapest tablet you are likely to find on the market.
