Subnotebooks, and Mini Laptops
Mini laptops ?also known as subnotebooks ?are lightweight, portable PCs with razor-thin dimensions than run at least 5 hours or more on a single charge. Generally, 18mm (0.7?, thick or less for machines with screens under 14?and 23mm (0.9? for those with larger size or touchscreens. To meet these size and weight standards, mini laptops frequently omit bulky features such as optical drives, but an easy work around is to add an external drive .
Mini laptops are different from netbooks because they offer more CPU power, additional RAM, and larger displays. They also feature fast storage options such as solid state drives, and sometimes amenities usually found on full-size notebooks such as backlit keyboards and Identity Protection Technology.
