As technology marches forward, consumers can spend less and get more functionality. Even as laptops keep becoming more portable, they continually cost less money. Popular technology site CNet recently released its list of the 10 best laptops that cost under $1,000.
Squeaking in at $999 was Apple's 11-inch MacBook Air. This ultra-light computer has undergone many changes since it launched in 2007, but the company made the device simultaneously its smallest, most powerful and least expensive MacBook Air yet. With plenty of battery life and USB 3.0 ports, this ultraportable computer allows its users to do real work almost anywhere.
Another great option is the Asus Zenbook UX32A. An accessible part of the Asus Zenbook family, this hardware is available for a great price because of some outdated components. Consumers can always buy this computer and find out about customization options so that all the software is up-to-date.
The Lenovo IdeaPad is an excellent 13-inch ultrabook, and it's a great price ($799) for those looking to upgrade for the new school yearl. The IdeaPad also comes in a variety of colors, making it stand out among typically grey competition.
Each of these laptops comes with an inexpensive price tag, but users should know that they don't have to sacrifice the newest software just because they don't want to pay an exorbitant amount. The new MacBook Air will come with Mountain Lion, Apple's most recent operating system. And, it will be inexpensive for PC users to upgrade to Windows 8 when it comes out in October.
