Notebookcheck's Top 10 Subnotebooks

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

June 2019 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 2018 (Touch Bar, i5)

Avantgarde at the performance limit: Apple MacBook Pro 13 2018
Avantgarde at the performance limit: Apple MacBook Pro 13 2018

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 - Microsoft Surface Laptop 2

Microsoft Surface Laptop 2: Limited connectivity, but still good
Microsoft Surface Laptop 2: Limited connectivity, but still good

Microsoft saves in terms of connectivity for its second laptop, but you get an excellent screen. The second iteration of the Surface Laptop (here in review) is basically an update with a modern processor.

The 3:2 aspect ratio is rare and is particularly useful for office users. We liked the 13.5-inch PixelSense display: it is very bright, covers sRGB almost completely, does not use PWM, and the color deviations are low.

The Microsoft Surface Laptop 2 os a good choice if you want a high-quality laptop with a good screen, quiet operation, and good input devices. The lack of Thunderbolt 3 is unfortunate and hard to understand, but the limitations on you everyday experience are still small.

Microsoft still uses a high-quality and sturdy chassis for the Surface Laptop. The performance is good and we like the speakers. The battery runtime of 9 hours is not bad, either.

Microsoft unfortunately does not offer Thunderbolt, USB-C, BT 5.0 or an SD reader. You cannot maintain the device and the additional charges for RAM, CPU and SSD are steep.

A good alternative is the current Dell XPS 13 9380 (2019). It is also available with a high-resolution screen and is superior in terms of connectivity.

Pricecompare

5th - Fujitsu LifeBook U938

Fujitsu's LifeBook U938 (here in review) is a luxury lightweight at just 920 grams (~2 lb). This is noticeably lighter than the 13-inch competition like the Dell Latitude 13 7380. The reviewer criticized the CPU performance, which is below average for the processor, but it is still completely sufficient for mobile users, even without NVMe SSD. Potential buyers will not expect a mobile workstation at 920 grams (~2 lb). 

You can still maintain the very slim device, which is rare. The manufacturer unfortunately did not fix the high-pitched fan we already know from the previous U937.

The Fujitsu LifeBook U938 is a very light and compact subnotebook, but we cannot understand why the issues of the previous model have not been changed for the U938.

The keyboard is unfortunately not illuminated, which should be standard in this price range. The U938 is still a good subnotebook that lasts a full business day with a Wi-Fi runtime of 8:30 hours.

6th – Asus ZenBook S UX391U

Asus ZenBook S UX391U - light-weight subnotebook with plenty of oomph
Asus ZenBook S UX391U - light-weight subnotebook with plenty of oomph

At just slightly over 1 kg the Asus ZenBook S UX391U (review) is incredibly light yet still manages to offer plenty of oomph thanks to an Intel Core i7-8550U, 8 GB of RAM, and a 512 GB SSD.

Its 13.3-inch 1920 x 1080 resolution matte display is a big plus. Build quality was decent, and the premium touch and feel is courtesy of the high-quality material Asus chose for its case. We were particularly excited about the quite mode. Considering that Intel’s i7-8550U offers more than enough performance for everyday requirements the quite mode can be used to improve fan management and overall system noise. Its input devices were decent, and Asus even adds bonus accessories such as a docking station and a protective sleeve.

The ZenBook S UX391U is an excellent choice if you are looking for a particularly lightweight and compact companion. However, neither performance nor stamina are at their respective peak levels, and could be better.

That said there were a few drawbacks as well, for example CPU performance. Quiet mode should be avoided for demanding tasks in order to get the most out of Intel’s Core i7-8550U. In addition, the fan was very squirrely in nature, and a card reader is nowhere to be found on the case.

7th - Lenovo ThinkPad A285 (Ryzen 5 Pro)

Lenovo ThinkPad A285: Ryzen in the Top 10
Lenovo ThinkPad A285: Ryzen in the Top 10

Lenovo's ThinkPad A285 (here in review) is the first Ryzen 5 Pro laptop in our Subnotebook Top 10 ranking. The high-quality and light chassis with the excellent ThinkPad input devices cannot quite keep up with the flagship X1 Carbon, but it is more affordable and offers other advantages: The maintenance is easy, the matte screen manages a luminance of more than 300 nits and the fan control is sophisticated. 

The Lenovo ThinkPad A285 is a good office device based on an AMD chip and is a more affordable alternative to the familiar X280. The CPU performance is a bit lower and the battery runtime shorter, but it is otherwise a good device.

The ThinkPad A285 does not compete with the X1 Carbon, but is a more affordable alternative to the ThinkPad X280. The A285 uses the same chassis with identical input devices, a fast SSD, and the good stability.

One issue is he battery runtime, which is okay at 7:50 hours, but the competition is better. The memory is also soldered, so you cannot upgrade it later. Thunderbolt 3 is also missing, which is featured on the X280.

Pricecompare

8th - Dell XPS 13 9380 2019

Dell XPS 13 9380 2019: More performance under sustained workloads
Dell XPS 13 9380 2019: More performance under sustained workloads

Dell offers the new 2019 XPS 13 9380. The cooling system with its dual fans ensures good performance utilization under sustained workloads, even though it is not always stable (Whiskey Lake quad-core). There is still an improvement over the 2018 model.

The 2019 XPS 13 only reduces its performance by 8% under sustained workloads, so it is faster than the Kaby Lake Refresh quad-core in the predecessor.

The case did not change; the XPS 13 still offers a nice design with slim bezels. A lot of display with a small footprint. The UHD screen, which is now provided by AUO (previously from Sharp) is bright, but the sRGB gamut is a bit lower.

The webcam is back at the top of the screen, but we cannot commend its quality.

The XPS 13 is a good option for all users looking for Thunderbolt and DisplayPort via USB Type-C and want a lot of performance in a small package. The battery runtime of 8 hours is nit bad, but not class-leading, either. The i5/1080p model from SKU managed almost 11 hours in the same test.

Pricecompare

9th - Razer Blade Stealth

Razer Blade Stealth: Gaming Subnotebook?
Razer Blade Stealth: Gaming Subnotebook?

The Razer Blade Stealth (here in review) uses a tuned version of the GeForce MX150 and gets the maximum performance out of the GPU. The gaming performance is impressive, because the MX150 is equipped with 4 GB GDDR5-VRAM and consumes 25 Watts.

It is the most powerful 13.3-inch Ultrabook so far with GPU performance levels almost on par with the GTX 960M in the size of a MacBook Pro 13. The performance per Watt is very good for this segment. The new Blade Stealth offer more performance than a MacBook Pro 13, but is neither bigger, nor heavier. All in all, it is the better combination of high performance and mobility.

We also like the good factory calibration with full sRGB gamut. The case does not have to hide behind the MacBook Pro 13, either: The bezels are slim; you get a lot of screen with a small footprint.

Despite the high performance, the 13-inch system manages a Wi-Fi runtime 9 hours and 30 minutes. Drawbacks include the reduced performance on battery power as well as PWM at low brightness levels. The soldered memory can unfortunately not be expanded and the response times of the display are long (more visible ghosting).

There is currently no alternative with similar GPU performance figures in the Top 10. We still recommend a look at Huawei MateBook 13 i7, which just missed our rating at 86%.

10th - HP Envy 13-ah0003ng

Sleek in metal: Envy 13-ah0003ng
Sleek in metal: Envy 13-ah0003ng

If you are looking for a compact and powerful notebook with a sleek metal chassis, HP has something for you. The Envy 13-ah0003ng is a 13-inch system with a Kaby Lake-R quad-core CPU and a MX150. The 1080p screen does not feature the highest resolution, but it is an anti-reflective and very bright 120 Hz panel in return. You will easily manage a full business day with long battery runtimes between 8-15 hours (Wi-Fi test and idle).

Because of the slim cooling solution, HP only uses the slower version of the MX150 GPU. The reviewer likes the decent keyboard with the single-level illumination. You also get a Type-C USB port, which is also used for charging.

HP's Envy 13-ah0003ng is a solid subnotebook in general. However, the drawbacks we mentioned should are uncommon for this price range.

The drawbacks do not only include the mediocre transfer rates of the SSD, but also the coil whine (audible in certain situations) as well as Type-C USB, which only supports the 3.1 Gen.1 standard.
