The choices of mobile computing for SOHO users (part 2)

Subnotebook and Ultraportable

Subnotebook, or ultraportable, can provide a medium power (especially when it compares with laptops in recent years), but they maily focus in the portable ability and easy to be used. The main concerns in here are the battery duration, small and convenient size, and as lightest weight as possible. When a businessman on his work trip, he chooses one of these gadgets because of ts convenience – because after all, no one want to carried with themselves more weight, and these machines are still strong enough to handle those mission in their businesses.

These gadgets can provide smaller screens, but it’s not always like that: 13 inch LCD screen normally is the typical one, but it gets changing since the producers are finding ways for packaging larger, lighter screen into a smaller computer. Normally, subnotebook just can provide less connector: instead of 3 or 4 USB slots, subnotebook only provides 2; instead of 500GB storage on bigger laptops, subnotebook can have the super fast and thin SSD with less capacity. Some of the notebooks even eliminate the capital drive, and your suggestion is always using an outside DVD player or the drive is one of the docking station, which are usually forgotten through out the trip.

Note that subnotebook can’t be as cheap as the systems in the CPU which are more powerful and bigger. The more powerful components are being packaged into a small gadget require the more expensive of those components compare to those using in the bigger CPU, yet still the producers have to use that.

A good example for this category is Sony VAIO S Series (starting at $899,99). Laptop S Series weights 3,8 pound with standard battery, including 500GB storage and 13.3 inch sreen, with the battery duration up to 7,5 hour. It’s beautiful, powerful and easy to be carried in the luggage, or even in a big bag.

Apple  MacBook Air is another good example for subnotebook. Thin and light, Air has model 11 inch and 13 inch, Intel Core 2 Duo microprocessor, 64GB storage or 128GB, 4GB RAM, long battery duration and high-definition screen. Air starts about $1000, and the price increases rapidlywhen the capacity and the power have been fixed and more additions. Therefore, with such a high price like that, Mac fans will be considered when buying this realistic and beautiful gadgets.
