The term ultrabook was created by intel and from then, the market continues to be dominated by these compact devices with incredible performance and power. Despite their small sizes, these machines are capable of working just like a regular bulkier laptop.

Normally Ultrabooks are made for the general purpose and travel use but some of these devices are also good for low-end gaming. They have the a screen size of 12, 13 or even 15 inches and these devices also come with a long battery life.

I will guide you through the top 5 Ultrabooks that you can buy in 2017. These devices are best in the line and come with amazing battery live as well as processors and are known for their ultra-portability. I will also tell you what are their weaknesses so it will be easier for you to make a decision about which one in best for you.

5: Razer Blade Stealth


On number 5 there is Razer Blade Stealth. As you know that Razer Blade is mostly known for making high-end gaming laptops and this device is also a gaming device. But this laptop is slim unlike the other razor blade laptops and can be used as a gaming laptop as well.

There are some things that Razer could improve like charging brick is relatively large. And key travel is less than what other normal laptops have. The key travel thing is new so maybe it’s a learning curve for you and won’t bug you in the future.
