PC Magazine Laptop (and Desktop) Buying Guide

ASUS U1 U1F PC Magazine is running their annual PC Magazine Buying Guide: Desktops and Laptops. Ultraportables have gained quite a bit of exposure this time around (or rather there seem to be more models mentioned that are lighter and faster than last time around).

Ultraportables were mentioned in two sections – those on the road a lot, who would favor a smaller size and weight, and those who are limited in the space they have available to them.

For the businessman constantly on the go, whipping out your laptop on an airport security-check line is labor enough. Lugging it through numerous airports trying to make connecting flights is a whole other ordeal. You’ll want a system that won’t weigh you down (or make you permanently lopsided). We think a sub-4-pound ultraportable is the way to go. Advances in technology also make it possible for PC manufacturers to integrate optical drives without exceeding the 3-pound barrier.

Under the Road Warrior section, these ultraportables are featured:
Lenovo ThinkPad X60
Toshiba Portégé R500-S5002
Panasonic Toughbook CF-W5
OQO model 02

Under the Cramped Space Dweller section, they mention:
ASUS U1F
Sony VAIO VGN-SZ370P
