If you're looking for a notebook that's easy to take on the road with you, yet doesn't compromise much when it comes to user comfort and features, then consider getting yourself a 13.3in laptop, rather than a 10in [[xref: http://www.pcworld.idg.com.au/tag/netbook/|netbook|More netbook news and features]].
We think 13.3in hits the sweet spot between mobility and easy of use and prices for many 13.3in notebooks are not that much more than the most expensive netbooks, with the benefit being that you'll also get a lot more performance out of a 13.3in notebook than you would out of a 10in netbook.
In this round-up we've gathered the best 13.3in notebooks of 2010, including the recently released [[artnid:369536|Dell Vostro V130|Review: Dell Vostro V130]]. The Vostro V130 doesn't have as many features as some of the other 13.3in models we've included, but its solid build quality, 1.6kg weight and thin frame still make it desirable.
5 / 10
The ViewSonic ViewBook Pro is one of the few affordable ultraslim laptops to have a built-in DVD burner. It's a nifty little unit for business users and students, and it's very light. It felt a little bit sluggish during normal usage, but benchmarks scores showed it to be on par with other notebooks in its class.
