Best Thin and Light Laptops With 8th Gen Intel Processors

Abid Iqbal Shaik

Manufacturers are making laptops thinner and lighter day by day, making it easier for people to carry them around. However, such laptops till now lacked the processing power required for heavy tasks, as they were short on space for powerful processors. Thanks to the 8th Generation Intel processors, the issue has been resolved by a significant margin. The laptops with 8th Gen Intel processors offer up to twice the processing power as opposed to the laptops equipped with 7th Gen processors. Hence, you can now get the best of both worlds. Below, are a few laptops that we think offer great performance while retaining a slim look and lighter weight profile.

Great performance at a budget
The Lenovo Ideapad 530S is a great alternative to the Yoga 530 if you don’t need a touchscreen. The IdeaPad 530S has the same powerful processor and excellent connectivity options as the Yoga 530, but it comes with 16GB DDR4 RAM, which is double than what its sibling offers.

Powerful laptop which is also great for multimedia consumption
The HP Pavilion x360 comes with 8th Gen Intel Core i5 processor mated to 8GB of DDR4 RAM. The laptop has a 256GB NVMe SSD for faster boot-up times. Though the laptop misses out on a fingerprint scanner; it makes up for that with its dual B&O speakers, which sound superb, and are great for media consumption. Adding further to its media capabilities is side-mounted volume rocker, which allows for easy volume controls while you are using the laptop in the tablet mode. Speaking of tablet mode, the Pavilion x360 has a Full HD IPS touchscreen for a great viewing experience.

For those who desire premium build quality over other things
The Dell Inspiron 13 is the lightest laptop among all its similarly specced competitors. The laptop has a solid build quality and premium looks. Therefore, it is excellent to carry-around and flaunt. The Dell Inspiron 13 also has a Windows Hello based infrared camera to make up for the lack of fingerprint scanner. As for the performance, it has a quad-core Intel Core i5 processor, 8GB of DDR4 RAM, and a 256GB SSD. Though the laptop doesn’t have an NVMe SSD, we think that its better build quality makes up for it.
