The T Series 13 starts at $669 with a Core i3 processor, non-touch display, and 320GB hard drive plus 32GB flash cache. Our test unit's $899 price comes from upgrading to the Core i5 chip ($70), a 500GB hard drive ($30), 6GB of memory ($30), and the touch screen ($100). All models come with a very good selection of other software, in addition to the touch-aware apps detailed earlier.

13.3": This is a common display format for subnotebooks. Netbooks, UMPC and some subnotebooks have tinier displays. Nevertheless, the majority of standard laptops has a higher format. The advantage of a small display is, that the subnotebook can be small dimensioned and can be carried easily. Further the small display needs few energy, which improves the battery runtime and in consequence the mobility. The disadvantage is that the reading of texts is a bit exhausting for the eyes, especially with high resolutions.» To find out how fine a display is, see our DPI List.


1.6 kg: This sub-notebook weighs less than the average of all notebooks and represents a medium class of weight among the sub-notebooks. 11 inch displays are normal for this class of weight.
