Ultrathin Notebooks--Part 1 of 7
Ultra thin notebooks make it easy for frequent travelers to take their computer on the road. Manufacturers like Dell, Gateway and IBM all have portables with large hard drives, decent, quality screens and small foot prints.

Most ultrathin notebooks help maintain their small portable form factor by reducing the size of the LCD panel. Most ultrathins sport 12.1-inch screens. Keep this in mind if you display presentations for groups on your notebook. A 3-inch diagonal loss in screen size can make a big difference when people are crowding around to see your presentation.
