The best ultra-portable notebooks to get in 2021, Reviews News & Top Stories

SINGAPORE (HARDWAREZONE) – More people are turning to notebooks as they seek a machine that offers them the flexibility to do work or to learn whenever and wherever in the wake of the Covid-19 pandemic.

Even though 75 per cent of workers have been able to return to their offices since April 5, flexible workplace hours are still encouraged.

Analysts say notebook shipments have grown 20 per cent to 30 per cent in the past year.

Advances in processor technologies and materials science mean ultra-portable notebooks are more powerful, more efficient and yet lighter than before.

We round up eight of the best ultra-portable notebooks money can buy.

Acer Swift 5

The Acer Swift 5 has been with us in some form for a couple of years now. This year’s model looks like it could be Acer’s best yet.

The Swift 5 is a notebook that checks a lot of boxes. It is light, compact and has a nice bright display that is one of the better ones in this shootout.

It has great specifications, with a good amount of memory and a generous amount of storage, as well as a pleasant keyboard and trackpad.

One complaint is that it has only a single USB-C port. At $2,298, it is not cheap but at least it is reasonably priced.

Asus Zenbook 14 Ultralight

This is the most complete ZenBook yet.

Asus really took a long hard look at its earlier notebooks and addressed almost all of their issues.

The ZenBook 14 Ultralight is compact and light, performs well, and has a long battery life and a good selection of ports.

The only knock against it is that it is pricier than its predecessors, which is a shame because ZenBooks used to be very affordable.

The new model’s specifications are great too.

It is also the only notebook to have discrete graphics.

At $2,398, the ZenBook 14 Ultralight is one of the pricier models in this shootout, but it has impressive features and performance.

Dell XPS 13

The Dell XPS 13 has always been one of the most well-rounded ultra-portables.

The build is fantastic, the display is gorgeous (it has the best display in this shootout), and the keyboard, trackpad and speakers are all top-notch too.

The downside is that it feels a little dense and heavy.

Ports are a bit of an issue, with only two USB-C Thunderbolt 4 ports, for instance.

The XPS 13 is available in a variety of configurations. The version I reviewed costs $2,599, which makes it one of the pricier notebooks. But the premium is somewhat justified by its exceptional build quality and mega display.

Huawei Matebook 14 AMD

The Huawei MateBook 14 AMD. PHOTO: HUAWEI

The MateBook 14 AMD runs a mid-range Ryzen 5 processor but its build quality is very good and feels much better than its $1,298 price tag would suggest.

On paper, this notebook is irrefutably the one that is the most value-for-money option here.

Its screen is easily one of the better displays in this shootout despite being prone to glare and reflections.

One shortcoming is its weight.

At 1.49kg, it is easily the heaviest notebook here – over 50 per cent heavier than some competitors.

Another issue is ports – it has no Thunderbolt 3 or 4 ports.

Lenovo Yoga Slim 7i Carbon

The Yoga Slim 7i Carbon is an appealing notebook, based on its design, features and respectable specifications for the $1,999 price tag.

Its build quality is good, the matte QHD display is sharp and the notebook is satisfying to use on all fronts – using the keyboard and trackpad is pleasant, for instance.

It is also the lightest notebook in this shootout at just 966g. Its top cover is made of carbon fibre, which makes it 40 per cent lighter while raising structural rigidity by 25 per cent.

The notebook is dust and temperature-resistant and can withstand drops from small heights.

The downside is that it has no USB-A or HDMI ports.

LG Gram 14


LG’s new gram 14 is its most refined ultra-portable notebook yet.

Its build quality has taken a positive step up, the specifications are respectable, and it has all, if not most, of the ports and features you would want from a portable everyday notebook.

It is also dust and temperature-resistant and can withstand drops from small heights, despite its 999g weight.

But the display left me with mixed feelings.

Its colours are vivid and accurate-looking but its unimpressive resolution of 1,920 x 1,200 pixels makes it less sharp than some of its rivals.

The version tested cost $2,199 but there is a cheaper version with a less powerful processor.

MSI Prestige 14 Evo

The MSI Prestige 14 Evo. PHOTO: MSI

The $2,349 Prestige 14 Evo makes a very good first impression.

Its specifications are good and it has a decent matte display, a good selection of ports and a very large trackpad.

At 15.9mm thick and weighing 1.29kg, the Prestige 14 Evo is not the slimmest or lightest.

The notebook can resist shocks, vibrations, humidity and dust, but does not feel quite as well put together as its rivals.

Its body has significant flex, which may be disconcerting.

It is the only notebook in this selection to be powered by Intel’s top-of-the-line Tiger Lake processor, the Core i7-1185G7, which has slightly higher base clock speeds than the Core i7-1165G7 which most other notebooks use.

Razer Book 13

The Razer Book 13. PHOTO: RAZER

Based on looks alone, the Razer Book 13 would have been the winner. It achieves the rare feat of being a genuinely good-looking notebook.

This notebook’s design and build quality are outstanding – it is built like a rock – and the specifications and feature set are good.

For instance, the ports on this notebook are great, while the glossy screen’s sharpness is outstanding and the colours are vibrant.

But the top-of-the-line model tested is pricey at $3,299.

The notebook is also the heaviest here at 1.4kg, over 400g heavier than some of its rivals.

Notebook performance

With the exception of the Huawei MateBook 14 AMD, the rest of the notebooks in the shootout are powered by Intel’s new Tiger Lake processor. And among them, the MSI Prestige 14 Evo is the only one that comes with the more powerful Core i7-1185G7 variant – the others have the standard Core i7-1165G7.

The notebooks were tested using the following benchmarks and applications: PCMark 10, Cinebench R23, Geekbench 5, WebXPRT 3, 3DMark, and the Tomb Raider game.

Despite most of these notebooks having very similar specifications, their performance numbers can vary quite wildly.

This is because manufacturers have the freedom to set thermal thresholds for their products.

What this means is that even when two notebooks have the same processor, one notebook might be quicker than the other if only because its maker decided to let it run hotter for longer.

This also explains why cooling solutions matter.

The standout performer was the Acer Swift 5. It came in first in most of the benchmarks and its all-round performance was very good.

Also commendable was the Lenovo Yoga Slim 7i Carbon, which was not far off.

What was remarkable about these two notebooks was how they were able to maintain consistent numbers even when taxed such as in the Tomb Raider test.

Also impressive was the Huawei MateBook 14 AMD. It may have only a Ryzen 5 processor, but its overall performance was mostly competitive, especially when you recall that it is the most affordable notebook here by a considerable margin.

Its graphics performance was lacking, however.

If any notebook’s performance could be described as disappointing, then it would be the MSI Prestige 14 Evo. Maybe MSI was being conservative, but the notebook’s performance was not commensurate with the fact that it is equipped with, what is on paper, the most powerful processor.

Battery life

Raw performance alone does not make a good ultra-portable notebook – battery life is important too.

Battery tests on the eight notebooks were conducted using PCMark 10’s battery benchmark, with displays set to 100 per cent brightness.

The battery lives of the notebooks were generally quite good. Even with their displays at maximum brightness and the notebooks themselves running a multitude of tasks, most of them managed to last well over six hours.

The standout performers were the Acer Swift 5 and LG gram 14.

The Swift 5’s long battery life is even more impressive when you consider the fact that it does not have the largest battery. It sips power at a remarkable rate.

The only other notebook that came close enough to matching this efficiency was the Lenovo Yoga Slim 7i Carbon. The Lenovo would have lasted longer if it had a larger battery – its 50Wh battery is the smallest of the bunch.

Another takeaway from the tests is how the display affects power efficiency. In the Modern Office battery tests, the most power-hungry notebooks were often those with high-resolution displays.

The Razer Book 13, which has a bright 4K display, consumed battery at a rate that was easily double those of other notebooks with full-HD displays.

Meanwhile, credit must be given to the Dell XPS 13 for keeping power consumption reasonable even though it also has a 4K display.

The Lenovo Yoga Slim 7i Carbon also deserves a mention. It has a QHD resolution display but it was still one of the most power-efficient notebooks.


The ultra-portable notebooks in this shootout are very competent machines. Performance and battery life were generally quite good across the board, although there were some standouts.

It is also nice to see that nearly all of them support the new and faster Thunderbolt 4 standard. This is significant as it opens up a wide range of peripherals that you can enhance your machines with.

Most crucially, it means you can dock these notebooks to an external graphics processing unit and have a truly competent gaming machine.

Best overall notebook: Lenovo Yoga Slim 7i Carbon

The Lenovo Yoga Slim 7i Carbon is our winner because it checks the most boxes.

At just 966g, it is the lightest of the bunch. Coupled with its svelte body, it easily slips into bags and notebook sleeves.

And despite being so thin and light, it sacrifices little in the way of performance. In performance tests, it ranked consistently among the top.

And, even though this model had the smallest battery, it lasted well over nine hours and was one of the more power-efficient notebooks.

This is even more remarkable when you consider that it has a higher-resolution QHD display and not a full-HD display like some of its rivals.

To round it up, it has no fewer than three USB-C ports, support for Wi-Fi 6, a very pleasant keyboard and a large touchpad.

And there is the price.

The Yoga Slim 7i Carbon is the second-most affordable notebook in this shootout. It offers just about everything you would want from an ultra-portable notebook.

Best value: Huawei Matebook 14 AMD

It is hard to argue against the Huawei MateBook 14 AMD when you look at the price tags of these machines. At $1,298, it is $701 less than the next most affordable notebook.

Sure, we can nitpick its performance and feature set, but it counters with class-leading build quality and that gorgeous high-resolution display with a 3:2 aspect ratio.

If you are looking to get the most out of your hard-earned dollars, the MateBook 14 AMD is the undisputed winner.

The rest

Acer Swift 5

It offers unrivalled performance and battery life, and is also impressively light and compact. However, its full-HD display is looking dated and it has only a single USB-C port. Overall, it is an excellent notebook but not quite as refined and modern as our winner.

Asus Zenbook 14 Ultralight

It has impressive specifications. It is very thin and light, has discrete graphics and is one of only two notebooks to come with a 1TB solid state drive.

Sadly, its performance was not quite as good as we hoped – throttling was quite severe during heavy workload tests. The full-HD display also looks quite dated and the notebook is quite pricey.

Dell XPS 13

It looks and feels expensive. The display is fantastic, with super-thin bezels, razor-sharp visuals and vibrant colours. The only knocks against it are its so-so performance and high price tag. But if you have a fat wallet and you value visual quality over outright performance, this is still a good choice.

LG Gram 14

This is the company’s most polished ultra-portable notebook yet. The gram 14 has always distinguished itself for its light weight and long battery life and this new model continues the tradition. Performance used to be a weak point but that is no longer the case. This model performs quite admirably, although throttling is a bit of an issue. It also has the best selection of ports. Its standing would have been elevated if only it had a better display and a more attractive price. Nevertheless, this is a very solid option especially if you are looking for a notebook that has every port you will ever need, is super light and has great endurance.

MSI Prestige 14 Evo

It was disappointing mainly because of its performance. Despite having the most powerful processor, it was unable to put the power down and distinguish itself in our benchmark tests. It goes to show that specifications on paper are not everything. And when you consider its price and everything else it offers, it is clear that there are better options out there.

Razer Book 13

If these notebooks were judged on looks alone, this model would have probably won. Its design is as attractive as it is distinctive, and it feels well put together. The 4K touchscreen display is also stunning. Sadly, its performance was not very strong and neither was its battery life. Furthermore, it is the most expensive notebook by a huge margin. When you put it all together, regardless of how good it looks, it just does not represent good value for money.

While I haven’t been as serious about visiting these type of stores on my travels in the past, I recently decided to try my best to find all the cute shops to visit in all the different places I’ve been to around the world. In this segment of “A Guide to Arts + Crafts Stores Around the World,” I’d like to introduce you to all the lovely shops of Singapore! Singapore is probably my most favorite place to shop for scrapbooking and stationery supplies because it literally carries the best of both Western and Asian stationery. You can find almost anything here in Singapore. So here’s a list of shops in Singapore that I know should be on top of any paper lover’s “to visit” list.

I liked the hotel

Review Summary
We rested in Stella quite recently, I liked the hotel very much, in Egypt for the first time.Excursions from the hotel guide do not take the rare liars they fight twice as much, covering it with a fairy tale about safety, but in fact they are the same intermediaries like everyone else, in street agencies all the same buses and the same excursions and the same transfer from the hotel and back , who for the first time in Egypt do not take Cairo by bus 8 hours there and 8 back will only lose time and it is very tiring, although in the advertisement of the hotel guide of Marina’s Anex tour it was written that 5 hours there and 5 back is nonsense, it is better to add $ 20 and to take from a street agency on a plane, somewhere around $ 120 will cost and 40 minutes to fly there and 40 back, while a hotel guide costs $ 90 a bus, although its real price is 50-55 well, max 60 dollars.Take food with you, demand at the hotel to wrap up with you what you are supposed to, depending on the type of food in Cairo, we were fed, like in a restaurant near the pyramids, I felt very bad after this dinner. We also took an excursion to Abu Galum, well, so-so of my money not worth riding on very skinny retired camels, Bedouin tea and bread, Bedouin children running barefoot on the hot sand and asking for money and swimming in a blue hole – only snokling with scuba diving for a fee, nothing special about the stella on the second pontoon the view is much better than in this blue hole, at the end you will be asked to take a film cat.filmed by a local operator, the cat constantly ran after us on the way to excursions, take one for all. it costs $ 25 and the quality is complete shit 40 minutes somewhere the video we chipped in with the whole jeep came out for $ 5 from the snout then passed it to each other through the Internet. Take masks with you there Chinese shit at a very expensive price, in the stele there is a rental of good Italian masks 40 pounds for the whole day. For dinner, a dress code is mandatory, they will not be allowed into the gym without sports shoes, there is a cool jacuzzi pool, a spa center, as for me, is very expensive and acc.empty put them norms. the prices for the people would be higher, and so a massage session is on average $ 100. And in Stella there is also a diving center, it seems that 1 hour of diving for 2 costs $ 100, it is more profitable because in others for the same price, if you are a beginner and do not have a diver certificate, you will be immersed in a swing for 15 minutes. If you nevertheless decide to go to Naama for souvenirs, do not take in the central stores where the Arabs will attack you like dogs for meat, it is better to go to the shops on the sides of the buildings or in small alleys in them, the prices are minimal right away, although you can still bargain.In Stella you need to know English because only guest rileyshiny 2 girls speak Russian. On the 4th day of stay, ants appeared in the room. you can swim only from 7 a.m. to 7 a.m. and then the pool is cleaned, but there is no smell of bleach in general, the water smells very nice. Do not go to the Delta Sharm hotel cheaply, but badly spoil your vacation, this is a former Arab village, everything is very dirty and bad fed, with us on the plane flew girls a cat.were in this hotel, they never bathed in the pool, the water smelled of bleach very much.
Hotel location
Stella herself is unique because it was built in the rock, this is a 7-storey building of them all in charm 2 as I was told, the oel is very beautiful, everyone smiles and greets. rooms, but it is better not to go to naamu there too expensive better to the old city a taxi can also be ordered at the hotel.
Territory / infrastructure
Hotel rooms
We had a deluxe villa, a separate 2-storey building, a hairdryer, a plasma TV, a very large bed, bathrobes, disposable slippers, soap, shower gel, but we took our own. sawed, it worked for us as an alarm clock so that we could sleep less on vacation, they take in the room about 2 times a day, on the second day I got from the cleaner, through the manager over the cleaners, to roll something out of towels, explained that I wanted an animal from a towel, he (the cleaner) briefly took me to the manager so that I could explain to him, in general, after that he sculpted for us every day either swans, then crocodiles, then elephants, towels in the room, 8 pieces, for hands, for legs, etc.there is a kondishin with control in the room, if you need ice in the room, you need to call the room service, there is a piece of paper near the phone with numbers, they will bring it free. Also in the room there is a large notebook to plan your vacation, kettle, tea and coffee.
They have water so we went for it to Naama, although there is an Afkika supermarket not far from the hotel called 15 minutes walk from the hotel. There they wrote in the previous. reviews that we cannot bring anything with us, we brought water and fruit, no one told us anything, although this is correct because you can buy something stale at the bazaar and make claims to the hotel.We had food for breakfast and dinner, I didn’t even think about lunch, I was fed very tasty: there were fresh juices, ice cream, every dinner was a dish from the chef like turkey or lamb, there is a separate cook on pasta, you order yourself with different sauces, on nv at dinner there were paid drinks, you can’t bring your own to the restaurant, well, that is, you can, but we were told to drink your bottle of champagne you have to pay 200 pounds, we bought it at the duty free for 100, so we drank in the room and ordered a bucket of salt in the room and drank on the balcony.I was not particularly interested in animation, I was once at water aerobics and stretching like gymnastics, in the evening in the lobby at the reception, a two-room piano is playing, and on the second pool some Italian band are singing songs – they sing well. 90,042 90,000 Best Singapore Success Story Book

“The world does not have to feed us. We cannot feed on begging.” These are the words of the Prime Minister of Singapore Lee Kuan Yew and the author of a book on the success story of Singapore.How a tiny British colony became a prosperous state Singapore, which is now so much talked about and written about. What is the secret of success? How can the economy prosper without any natural resources?

Who better to tell the story of Singapore’s success than the blacksmith of this very success and the creator of modern Singapore history?

Lee Kuan Yew Prime Minister of Singapore for 31 years . In 1959, when he brought his party to power, the Singaporean economy was in a deplorable state, there was no hope for help from neighboring countries, Singapore lacked resources (including fresh water), people huddled in slums, interethnic conflicts flared up constantly …

Looking at modern Singapore, one would like to understand how the country’s government was able to build a prosperous state of Singapore from a miserable fragment of the British Empire. Lee Kuan Yew shared the story of Singapore’s economic rise by writing book “From the Third World to the First. History of Singapore”.

Selected quotes by Lee Kuan Yew from “From the Third World to the First”:

What is the basis for Singapore’s financial success

  • We welcomed every investor, but when we found a big investor with the potential for serious growth, we just went out of our way to help him start production.
  • The history of our financial center is the story of how we built trust in Singapore as a place where business is done with integrity. This is the story of how we trained officials with the knowledge and skills to regulate and supervise financial institutions and exchange organizations to minimize the risk of disruption to the financial system.
  • The foundation for the development of our financial center was the observance of the rule of law, the existence of an independent court and a stable, competent and honest government that pursued sound macroeconomic policies, almost every year with a budget surplus.

Medicine in Singapore – Who Should Pay

  • The ideal of free health care clashed with the realities of human nature, at least in Singapore. I learned my first lesson in government clinics and hospitals. When doctors prescribed free antibiotics to patients, patients took the medication for a couple of days, felt no improvement, and threw away the remaining pills. After that, they went to private doctors, paid for the drugs themselves, underwent a full course of treatment and recovered.
  • Partial payments for medical services by patients prevented waste.
  • Subsidies for medical expenses in public hospitals accounted for up to 80% of the cost of services, depending on the type of treatment and the quality of patient care chosen by the patients themselves. As incomes rose, fewer people preferred low-cost services, which were heavily subsidized by the government, and opted for more comfortable treatment, which were more expensive but less government-subsidized.

How to live without pensions

  • I was determined not to shift the costs of welfare of the living people onto the shoulders of future generations. It is both fairer and smarter when every generation pays for itself and every worker puts money into a personal retirement fund.
  • People must be sure that their savings will not be lost as a result of inflation and devaluation of the national currency.
  • We had to redistribute national income by subsidizing activities that increased citizens’ ability to earn a living, such as education.

How Singapore Fought Corruption

Singapore’s impressive landmark Gardens by the Bay
  • We decided to focus the attention of the BRK (Bureau of Investigation of Corruption) on the big bribes in the highest echelons of government. We set out to fight the small fry by simplifying decision-making procedures.
  • We have expanded the definition of a bribe to include any good of any value.
  • We have increased the maximum penalty for corruption from S $ 10,000 to S $ 100,000.
  • DBK’s false testimony or misleading of the investigation became an offense punishable by imprisonment and a fine of up to S $ 10,000.
  • Courts were empowered to confiscate the proceeds of corruption.
  • Serious incidents of corruption hit newspaper pages. Several ministers were found guilty of corruption.
  • The Singapore government can only remain clean and honest if honest and capable people are willing to compete in elections and hold official positions. This requires paying them a salary comparable to that which a person with their ability and integrity could earn as a manager of a large corporation or in private legal or other professional practice.

Singapore is a country of prohibitions and restrictions on freedom of speech

  • We banned chewing gum due to the problems arising from its use – chewing gum was inserted into keyholes, mailboxes, elevator buttons. Tossing chewing gum on the floor dramatically increased the cost of cleaning and ruined the cleaning equipment.
  • We started by educating our people. After we convinced most of them, we started making laws to punish a minority of people who deliberately broke the rules.
  • Freedom of the press was the freedom of its owners to defend their personal and class interests.

Why This Book Is Worth Reading

The above quotes by Lee Kuan Yew are just a few interesting and instructive moments from of the book “From the Third World to the First. History of Singapore (1925 – 2000)”.

In the book, Lee Kuan Yew briefly but fairly accurately described the modern history and political situation in the countries of Asia.If you want to understand the reasons for the problems between the northern and southern parts of Korea, the poor economic condition of Cambodia and the sharp economic leap in Malaysia, I recommend reading From the Third World to the First. A History of Singapore (1925-2000).

No history textbook provides such a clear and precise overview of the Asian region.
