Notebookcheck's Top 10 Subnotebooks

Sebastian Jentsch, Stefanie Voigt (translated by Andreas Osthoff), 07/26/2018

March 2020 Update. Here you will find the current best subnotebooks reviewed by Notebookcheck in the last few months. Our list of top models is regularly updated, maintained and commented on and should assist in purchase decisions.

Subnotebooks bridge the gap between the performance of large laptops and the mobility of small devices such as tablets or even smartphones. More recently, 2-in-1 devices and convertibles have penetrated the subnotebook market. We categorize subnotebooks as devices that are no larger than 14-inches in screen size and lighter than 1.5 kg (~3.3 lbs) with integrated GPUs. The price range is wide and models from 300 to 2500 USD/Euros can be represented in our Top 10.

Subnotebook or ultrabook? We have created a separate Top 10 Ultrabooks list with devices meeting the Intel specifications from 2013: touchscreen, low-voltage Haswell processor (TDP: 15 W) or higher, battery life of 6 to 9 hours, Intel Wireless Display and USB 3.0. For the time being, however, our subnotebook charts will include ultrabooks and subnotebooks alike.

The following table shows an overview of the Top 10 subnotebooks as reviewed by Notebookcheck in the past 12 months. Important: good devices on the market might remain longer in the top list in exceptional cases. We remove devices that are no longer offered in shops, even if the review is younger than 12 months. The table can be sorted by clicking its headers and filtered with the adjacent text field (e.g. "matte").

Top 10 of the previous 10 months at the time of writing, highest rating first

1st - Apple MacBook Pro 13 2019 (Touch Bar, i5)

Avantgarde at the performance limit: Apple MacBook Pro 13 2019
Avantgarde at the performance limit: Apple MacBook Pro 13 2019

Apple updates the MacBook Pro lineup. The design did not change, but the 13-inch laptop finally benefits from 8th generation Intel processors with four real processor cores. However, the CPU cannot utilize its full performance due to insufficient cooling, and the power adapter is also at its limit. It looks like the manufacturer just used the cooling solution of the previous Kaby Lake model, which has problems with the additional heat from a quad-core CPU.

The display on the other hand is excellent and once again features 2560 x 1600 pixels (Retina, 227 PPI). It now supports the TrueTone technology, which s already familiar from the iPhone or iPad, respectively. TrueTone automatically adjusts the color temperature based on the time or the ambient light, which results in a warmer or cooler image).

Apple once again uses very good speakers and you get 4x Thunderbolt 3 (full bandwidth). The battery runtime has been improved and we determine almost 10 hours in our Wi-Fi test.

 

 

2nd - Lenovo ThinkPad X390

Lenovo ThinkPad X390 with 13.3-inch display
Lenovo ThinkPad X390 with 13.3-inch display

Lenovo says goodbye to the X200-series and now offers the successor ThinkPad X390. The design of the X390 hardly differs from the previous model, but the case is a couple of millimeters longer as well as wider to accommodate the 13.3-inch FHD panel. However, the new ThinkPad X390 also weighs 200 grams more. 

Advantages of the Lenovo thinkPad X390 include the sturdy base unit and the excellent input devices we often praised in the past. Lenovo does not save any money in terms of business and security features, and the warranty package with a 3-year premium on-site service is generous. You can also easily replace the keyboard of the ThinkPad X390 if you prefer a different layout. This is usually much more complicated on other devices.

Lenovo now uses a much better display for the X390 compared to the X280. The matte screen prevents reflections and the panel is much brighter than before. The only problem with the screen are the long response times.

We did like the overall CPU performance, the low temperatures, and the quiet system noise.

We praised the device a lot, but there are also drawbacks that could have been made better. The microSD card reader is tricky to reach and we do not like the reduced CPU performance on battery power. We would have also liked to see some options for upgrades, especially in terms of RAM. The latter is unfortunately soldered onto the mainboard and cannot be expanded. Thunderbolt 3 is useful, but it is only connected via two PCIe lanes. The display selections is another issue, because 1080p is the highest resolution you can get.

The points of criticism cannot be ignored, but Lenovo still does more things right than wrong. However, the biggest competitor is also from Lenovo.

3rd - Lenovo ThinkPad X1 Carbon 2018

Lenovo ThinkPad X1 Carbon 2018: Winner type with matte WQHD panel
Lenovo ThinkPad X1 Carbon 2018: Winner type with matte WQHD panel

Lenovo offers the sixth generation of the ThinkPad X1 Carbon (here in review). This time we reviewed the SKU with the matte WQHD screen. The 14-inch business laptop got an excellent rating (90%) and secures a top spot in this ranking.

We now had the chance to test all display options of the ThinkPad X1 Carbon: The default 1080p IPS screen with and without touch, the matte WQHD panel as well as the glossy WQHD HDR option, which is brighter than all the others. However, the high resolution requires more power, so the runtime suffers a bit. The default matte 1080p SKU is leading the mobility aspect. 

The Lenovo ThinkPad X1 Carbon is one of the best business laptops, and this does not change when you select the matte WQHD screen. The matte panels are better suited for work compared to the very glossy WQHD HDR screen. The matte WQHD panel from LG Philips is subjectively superior in terms of picture quality compared to the FHD panels, but the latter last a bit longer on battery.

Other than that, the ThinkPad X1 Carbon is an excellent business laptop with a high-quality, slim and light chassis. The utilization of the quad-core processor is good and we like the modern port selection including regular USB Type-A ports.

As you expect from a ThinkPad, you get an excellent keyboard and the battery runtime of 9 hours is not bad, either. Drawbacks include the heavily limited maintenance, the missing Ethernet port (even though the corresponding adapter is provided), as well as the high-pitched fan noise, which is sometimes running without apparent reason.

The business alternative is offered by Fujitsu. The LifeBook U938 is almost 200 grams lighter and just slightly smaller with its 13.3-inch panel, but Fujitsu does not offer as many display options.

4th – Lenovo Yoga C940-14IIL

Lenovo's Yoga C940 offers a long battery life
Lenovo's Yoga C940 offers a long battery life

Lenovo’s Yoga C940 (see review here) is the successor to the Yoga 930 and has not been updated on the outside. The high-quality case remains well built and is made mostly of aluminum. The decent sound system has also been left untouched. The FHD display panel, on the other hand, has been swapped for a much brighter one. 

Another new component is Intel’s Core i7-1065G7 Ice Lake with brand-new iGPU. The latter in particular is much faster than before, and should be sufficiently powerful for casual gamers. In our test, the Yoga C940 showed low emissions, including heat, and a surprisingly long battery life.

Lenovo’s Yoga C940 is a great device without any real flaws. Its highlight are no doubt the speakers that are hidden inside the sound bar-shaped 360 degree hinge.

Lenovo also includes an active pen by default. It is stored and simultaneously charged inside the laptop itself.

5th – HP EliteBook x360 1030 G3

HP EliteBook x360 1030 G3 with a very bright display

The HP EliteBook x360 1030 G3 (see review here) received a very good score in our review, and therefore deserves its spot in our top 10 list. The compact convertible is powered by an Intel Core i7-8550U, 16 GB of RAM, and a 512 GB SSD.

HP’s EliteBook x360 1030 G3 is a decent convertible for everyday work. Its touchscreen is better than most reflective competitors.

It is not only suited for business users on the road but also home users looking for a powerful ultrabook. The system was not able to utilize the Core i7’s full turbo boost potential. If you are note dependent on the i7’s performance an i5 SKU may be better suited for your needs.

The EliteBook x360 1030 G3 surprised us with long battery life, and we liked its very bright touchscreen in particular. Unfortunately, it turned out to be much grainier than expected. A safety feature dubbed SureView can reduce viewing angles for more privacy, however activating this feature results in a significantly reduced image quality.

We also disliked its immensely complicated maintenance. RAM is soldered onto the motherboard and not upgradeable.

6th – HP EliteBook x360 830 G6

HP EliteBook x360 830 G6 with matte SureView display

HP’s EliteBook x360 830 G6 scored very well in our review. Thanks to its Core i7-8565U and a massive 32 GB of RAM the convertible was immensely powerful, and a true workhorse. If, however, you require even more RAM it can be upgraded up to 64 GB. At 1 TB, its SSD was also more than amply dimensioned.

HP claims a maximum brightness of 1,000 nits, which we were unable to verify in our review. At “just” 700 nits it was however much brighter than its competitors.

The HP EliteBook x360 830 G6 is a great convertible with an excellent display that fails to reach its advertised maximum brightness.

The device is aimed primarily at business users with high expectations and demands. Thanks to its long battery life it is well suited for long workdays on the road, and so is the optional LTE modem.

We also liked its comfortable input devices, the included digitizer pen, its low heat emissions, and the low overall system noise under load.

7th – Acer Swift 3 SF313

Acer Swift 3 SF313 with bright 3:2 display

Acer’s Swift 3 SF313 (see review here) is an almost all-around well-made 13.5-inch notebook. It is very light yet manages to maintain a very robust base. We also liked its very bright 3:2 display, which turned out to have good color space coverage to boot. The small 13.5-inch device features the latest technology: Ice Lake CPU, NVMe SSD, DDR4 RAM, and an IPS panel. It is thus well-suited for photo editing purposes.

Acer’s Swift 3 SF313 offers good performance, long battery life, and a great display without putting too much strain on your budget.

Upgradeability is fairly limited, though. RAM is soldered onto the motherboard, and the devices does not support a second storage device. Wi-Fi performance was comparatively poor. However, we expect this issue to be a a problem with our particular device and are hoping to receive an identical second device to repeat our tests.

8th – Acer Swift 5 SF514

Acer Swift 5 SF514 with new Ice Lake CPU
Acer Swift 5 SF514 with new Ice Lake CPU

Acer’s Swift 5 SF514 (see review here) is an almost all-around well-made 14-inch Ultrabook. Despite its extraordinarily low weight of just 943 g (2.08 lbs) it features a very robust base. The 14-inch featherweight features the latest technology: Ice Lake CPU, NVMe SSD, DDR4 RAM, and an IPS touchscreen with decent color accuracy.

Acer’s Swift 5 is not only a well-made device but one that features the latest hardware. It is future-proof thanks to its Wi-Fi 6 modem and its Ice Lake SoC.

Fortunately, not everything is soldered onto the Swift 5’s motherboard. The Wi-Fi module and the SSD can be upgraded. Unfortunately, RAM remains soldered onto the motherboard. Battery life was not excellent at 7 hours, but more than usable. As such, the Acer Swift 5 SF514 barely made our top 10 Ultrabook list.

9th - Lenovo ThinkBook 13s

Lenovo ThinkBook 13s with decent stamina
Lenovo ThinkBook 13s with decent stamina

The ThinkBook 13s is a new laptop brand from Lenovo. This series fits perfectly into the category of subnotebooks, because all of our criteria are met. Contrary to the traditional black, the Lenovo ThinkBook 13s uses a silver chassis.

The performance of the compact subnotebook is sufficient with the Intel Core i5-8265U. Our review unit is also equipped with 16 GB RAM and a 512 GB PCIe-SSD. You can upgrade the memory thanks to one empty slot.

The positive aspects include low case temperatures and very long battery runtimes. The display is also above average with almost 100% sRGB color gamut.

We have to criticize the short warranty period as well as the castrated USB-C port, which does not support power delivery. The bezels are pretty wide at the lower edge, which affects the design a bit. The business features are also limited, but the device is no ThinkPad after all.

The ThinkBook 13s offers good features as a ThinkPad sibling and could be called IdeaPad Deluxe. It is a real alternative for much more expensive ThinkPads, especially for private users. However, you do not get all of the familiar ThinkPad features.

10th – HP Envy 13-ah0003ng

Good looking metal: Envy 13-ah0003ng
Good looking metal: Envy 13-ah0003ng

If you happen to be looking for a fast notebook with a sleek metal case the HP might be just the right fit for you. The Envy 13-aq0003ng (see review here) is a 13-inch notebook with a Whiskey Lake quadcore CPU and an MX250 GPU. Its FHD display might not be the highest-resolution display available but it has other qualities, such as its matte coating and its 120 Hz refresh rate. Battery life is between 8 and 15 hours (Wi-Fi test and idle) and should easily last all day long.

Due to its underpowered cooling system the MX250 had to be throttled slightly. Nevertheless, it performed very well when compared to the regular 25 W version as its clock frequency is higher than specified by Nvidia. We also liked its more than adequate and well-usable single-stage backlit keyboard as well as its USB-C port that can be used for charging the laptop.

HP’s Envy 13-ag0003ng is an all-around well-made subnotebook without any serious flaws.
