Deal Alert: The ultraportable laptop edition

The go-anywhere, ultraportable edition

We like power. When we turn on our laptop, we want to see speed and be able to run anything we want, while not having anything sputter or cause the laptop to crash. But if you plan on carrying you laptop everywhere, having things light is also important. We also want to be able to take our laptops without having an aching back at the end of the day. 

This week we looked around for some of the best deals we could find on ultraportable laptops online. We were looking for those that had at least a 13-inch screen and weighed less than 1.5kg.
