If you are on the road a lot, you’ll want to keep your gear as small and light as possible. These laptops are made to do just that.


The Acer Chromebook 14 is available in 11-, 14- and 15-inch screen sizes, depending on just how small you want to go. It’s also light, and boasts 11-hour battery life. One thing to note is it’s a Chromebook, which means all of its programs run as apps that must be connected to the internet, something to consider if your connection might be spotty.


Those that want top-of-the-range performance should take a look at the Dell XPS 13. It’s a Windows laptop that blows the competition out of the water in terms of performance, so it’s perfect for those demanding photo and video edits.


If you are more of an Apple fan, try the Macbook Pro. It’s supremely light and well-equipped, with great battery life. The price will put some people off, but Apple laptops have a reputation for lasting a long time.


Another option is a laptop-tablet hybrid such as a Microsoft Surface Pro. These machines are increasingly popular among travelers, offering the best of both kinds of device.
