A laptop has become a necessary accessory for most of us when we travel, and while they are portable, a regular size laptop can still quite cumbersome to tote through the airport while trying to navigate our carry-on through the pedestrian traffic.
Even if you carry your regular size laptop in a backpack, the extra weight can cause stress in your shoulders and neck.
Asus T100 Laptop Best for Travel
When looking for a travel laptop, one important factor to consider is weight. For travel, you need something smaller — a laptop about the size of an iPad is good.
One such laptop is the Asus T100 which features a 10.1 inch multi-touch backlit screen with 1366 x 768 resolution. It lets you run apps with a variety of touch gestures, has a micro SD card slot that offers expanded storage capacity, and it has a front-facing 1.2 megapixel camera that takes clear photos and videos.
Another thing that makes this laptop an attractive choice is its affordability. It’s only $400 and still puts video chats and voice messaging at your fingertips with a built-in microphone. As for the weight, it makes a good travel laptop because it weighs in at just 2.36 pounds, and it’s only .93 thick.
While all those plusses are good, there are a few other reasons the Asus T100 works well as a travel laptop including its long battery life. When you’re stuck waiting for your flight, and you can’t find an outlet to plug into, this computer promises 11 hours of battery life to help you stay productive while you’re on the move. Plus it recharges via USB so you can recharge by using a USB battery pack.
This laptop is equipped with Windows 8.1 and while that isn’t what Mac users are looking for, Mac doesn’t offer a comparable laptop in this price range. For travel, the Asus T100 is light, affordable and lets your work efficiently from anywhere.
