Great computing starts with Intel inside.
The X53E is a seriously powerful basic notebook, and for those who don’t need much graphics rendering power it’s a compelling option.
The Samsung NP350V5C - S02AU is a bang-for-buck all-rounder laptop powered by the latest intel Core i7 processor
This all-rounder has pretty strong mid-range specs, and while not exactly ultraportable the weight is still well below average.
If you want 4G connectivity in a tablet then this is your only option, and happily enough it’s a good option despite the high price.
This allrounder has a powerful processor, big hard drive and a TV tuner.
A low-voltage processor does limit the power of the Toshiba Satellite L830, but the low price and otherwise strong graphics card still make it impressive.
One of the faster previous generation Intel Core i5s, a 500GB hard drive, and a weight of 1.88kg? Yes please!
This ultraportable may use an older processor and graphics card, but it still compares well to newer alternatives.
This isn’t the lightest ultraportable around, but at 1.92kg and packing a DVD burner it’s definitely one of the more versatile examples.
Although this allrounder has more storage than most, the dedicated graphics card is unfortunately a bit too low-end for the price.
No more than $1000
