When you’re shopping for a laptop, there are a lot of things you need to consider. What are you using it for? Are you a gamer, a blogger, a browser or do you really just like porn? Whatever your end game, you need to consider how it performs before you can.

That’s less than a full water bottle or an average textbook. Here’s what made the cut:
1. The new Macbook weighs two pounds, which is less than the already loved Macbook Air. It also offers more than 16 hours of battery life, since, well, you are on the go. It’s the high-end option in this researcher recognized top three, but it’s totally worth the price tag. Apple Macbook, $1,500 and up at Apple.
2. If you’re looking to drop a little less coin, but what similar performance, then your next best bet is the Lenovo Flex 3. It’s under $1,000, has an 8-hour battery life and is built to endure video editing and mid-range gaming. Lenovo Flex 3, $500 and up at Lenovo.
3. The least expensive is the Acer Aspire Switch, which weighs a bit more than the others at three pounds. A bottle of wine also weighs three pounds, to put it in terms we can all understand.
