Selecting best laptop for developers and designers can be confusing when you have such huge options in terms of price and performance from different brands in market.

During the new session for our developers, we are looking for a laptop which should be powerful in terms of performance with less in weight (Its bit hard to carry 2kg laptops for client meeting).

We came across lots of options in market from different brands like ASUS, HP, DELL etc. We also set some benchmark in terms of configuration and prices. During our research we found something which really amaze us (Specially in looks and weight). It really hard to believe that a laptop can be such powerful in just 932grms (well its one of lightest and slimmest laptop ever made).

Before explaining you further, let take a quick look on configuration of Acer swift5 Ultra slim laptop.
