10 Thinnest Laptops in 2019
Written by Izak Van Heerden
With traveling becoming easy and Internet enabling people to work remotely, thin portable laptops are highly in-demand.
And of course there’s the bragging rights of sporting a laptop you can almost shave with…

Acer Swift 7



Acer itself proclaims that this laptop of theirs is the thinnest of its kind in the world. It only weighs 2.6 lbs. (1.18 kg) and measures 0.39 inches in its thinnest. The Swift does not skimp on specs either, no 256Gb SSD as you get in so many competitors but a solid 1/2 Terabyte driver here, as well as a battery that gives 9 hours of use.

Here are other amazing things Acer’s Swift 7 offers other than its slenderness:

  • Intel Core i7 (i7-7Y75) CPU
  • Smooth, comfortable keyboard and built-in 4G LTE
  • 256GB SSD
  • Up to 9 hours of battery life (under extreme usage)

HP Spectre x360 13 8th gen


HP delivers an acrobatic model that can fold back away from the keyboard – and it includes a digital pen for artists and note takers. It weighs in at only 12 ounces with dimensions of 12 x 8.6 x 0.5 inches. You can squeeze up to 16 hours worth of use out of this baby, ensuring you’ve got use of your laptop even during the longest international flight.

Other stuff about Spectre 13 is the following:

  • Intel Core i7-8550U CPU

Zenbook Flip S is an ultra-thin notebook that you can also flip 360 degrees so you are able to write and draw on its screen like a tablet. It’s a convertible laptop and has a Stylus pen for a partner. It weighs only 3,3 lbs., its measurements are 12.9 x 8.9 x 0.5 inches. This laptop is a good choice for every artist out there that’s always on the move.

It can also be converted into a tablet because of its 360 degrees flip feature.

Microsoft Surface Laptop 2


Microsoft’s not quite the thinnest contender comes in at 12.13 x 8.79 x 0.96 inches and weighs 2.76 lbs. (1.25kg). The design is gorgeous and nice to the touch, and like Asus Zenbook Flip S and HP Spectre, you can fold it 360 degrees backwards, so this is another laptop for people who can draw on. Specs are unfortunately somewhat on the blah side with a i5 processor and 8Gb of RAM.
