5 Windows 7 NoteBooks that are Light as Apple MacBook Air

In a blog post titled “The Top 5 PC Alternatives to the MacBook Air,” Matt Burns hits on 5 excellent PCs: Dell Adamo XPS, Sony VAIO X, ASUS UL30, MSI x360 X-Slim, and the Acer 3810 Timeline.

While those’re all great choices, but Ben Rudolph offer up his recommendations as well. All of the PCs listed here run Windows 7 extremely well and will give you more power, more choice, and more personality than a MacBook Air. Take a look:

  • Asus eeePC 1215n has a new dual-core Atom N550, USB 3.0 and NVIDIA ION (with Optimus fast-switch tech!) graphics, slightly larger 12″ screen. $483.21
  • Lenovo U160 is a full-power PC in a pint-size package, measures only 11.6″, get it up to a Core i7 processor, 4GB RAM, 640GB hdd. And it’s red, which in case you forgot, is something you can’t get on any Mac. Just sayin’. Price: from 799.99
  • Toshiba Portege r705 is the lightest full feature laptop (with DVD drive), pack it with specs like 500GB hdd or 128GB SSD, Core i7, and 8GB RAM. $849
  • Sony VAIO P can fit in your back pocket. VAIO P’s killer 1600 x 768 resolution display, wicked fast SSD and a choice of black, pink, neon green, white or orange make it as much of a fashion statement as it does a perfect PC for on-the-go email and light internet work. $899.99
  • Acer TimelineX 1830 is a 11.6″ model – like Lenovo U160, it’s netbook sized but not a traditional netbook. You can get it with a Core i3 processor, 320GB drive and 8 hours of real-world use time out of the battery, and aluminum chassis. Price: $591.06.
