Laptops were created to be portable so people
Laptop Computer Size
When pertaining to the size of a laptop, the size is determined by the external physical dimensions of the machine. Be sure to keep in mind when looking at laptops, that there are other attachments and accessories that might need to be carried along with the unit. DVD drives are not usually included with net books and many ultra portable computers also remove them in order to save space. If you decide to buy a net book or an ultra portable and you still need the DVD drive, you will most likely have to get an external driver or a docking bay. The thin and light laptops allow you to swap media bays by changing from a DVD to a spare battery. To recharge and power a laptop and any other accessories, you need to have the proper power adapters.
Every portable computer system uses three physical dimensions for their size; depth, width and thickness(height). The width of the laptop is the measurement of the left edge of the keyboard to the right edge. Depth is measured from the front of the laptop to the back panel. The height refers to the distance from the bottom of the laptop to the back of the screen.
Business Laptop Weight
The laptop's weight, how heavy it is, greatly influences the portability of the system. Although the size determines what kind of bag the laptop will fit in for carrying, the weight of it will cause the physical bearing on us as we carry them along. A laptop that is too heavy for an individual will strain the person and gradually cause fatigue. People who travel frequently and have to carry a laptop will agree that the lighter computer systems are so much easier to carry even if it doesn't have as much functionality as the larger and heavier laptops. Business travelers tend to have ultra portable systems and school students use the thin and light laptops for the simple reason that they are lighter to carry around.
When looking for the laptop's weight specifications on the packaging, it may not be very clear because most computer manufacturers list the weight of the system with the battery inside. They may only just list a weight range if a media bay is included with the computer. These weights don't include other items such a power adapter which adds at least a pound to the laptop's weight. To try and find a more accurate weight look for the specification labeled as the travel weight, that should be the weight of the laptop along with any attachments.
