Mini Laptops or Notebooks have always been popular among users because of their portable design and low prices. Mini Laptops usually have smaller than 12-inch screen size and also smaller Processors (like the M series by Intel) which helps them to be more energy efficient, and since users don’t expect them to be extra powerful like gaming systems - the smaller processors are able to handle most every day tasks like Web browsing, sending emails, watching movies, photos etc. There are a number of different choices when it comes to choosing a mini laptop, here is a list some famous companies so you can choose the one that best suites your needs.
The best thing about mini laptops is that they can be carried anywhere, are very inexpensive, and specially beneficial for students who are on a budget and just need a system that can do their everyday tasks like web browsing, social networking, sending emails, watching some movies or listening to songs, normal things like that don’t really require a powerful and expensive processor like a Core i7 for instance.
But since the launch of the first mini laptop, in 2007, they have been undergoing a decline in their popularity, mostly because of their prices are getting higher and more full fledged laptops’ prices getting lower, people started purchasing bigger full sized laptops for obvious reasons. But recently, there has been a rise in their popularity again, many companies are making inexpensive models with decent hardware, that doesn't cost that much and have the ability to get the job done.
A little history of Mini Laptops
Although the Mini laptop’s history can be traced back to 1996 when Toshiba launched a sort of Mini computers, in recent times officially netbooks or mini laptops were launched in 2007. Brands like Dell and HP were the first ones to introduce a number of different mini laptops, the main reason for their creation was to create a form of system that has very high level of portability and compactness and is also very inexpensive.
As they were cheap, and also had small sizes, they didn’t really have powerful processors or high amounts of storage, things like CD/DVD ROM were taken out of the design because they were proving to be difficult to include in the smaller designs and caused an unnecessary increase in weight.
