i bought one and its way tooo big....15.6" ...so i need to think about another one
what lap top would you recommend to use on an airplane tray......clearly my first choice was a terrible choice.......wayyy too big !!
i tried to google.....;laptop screen size for airplane use or something similar and nothing good came p
or what size laptop should i purchase for use on airplane ? nothing with that either.
This laptop would be used for entertainment purposes on an airplane for long distance flights...movies, minor games and once i land i could use it for Email, surf the net etc
nothing complicated.
this is the one i b ought previously

i was considering this one but it sold out
http://computers.woot.com/offers/...otebook-27

SIZE is important for air travel. I think i wanna stay away from Chromebooks......or tell me why i should include them in this search.

thanks for any assistance.

Try this one:

The lowest price I have seen is $100 at staples/bestbuy. I have one and its good for minor stuff and the screen is good size for airplane. I did increase the memory size by adding a 32GB (max supported) micro SD. Instructions for adding were posted in the initial thread for this laptop.

A macbook pro 13" should be fine, depends what you want to do with that, maybe if when you figure out your needs, an iPad would be a better choice.

.... Unless cost is a concern. A pc of identical power is often a fraction of the price.

zenbook 11 inch and yoga 11 inch are two lightweight laptops. I would search on ebay, quite honestly if your fine with something like 4 gb of ram 3rd gen i5 processor and a smaller ssd then those both would work. price should be 250 or less used on there maybe 350 for a new one. usually the 11 inch screens are cheaper.

very first item on ebay this is the yoga (2 in 1 laptop and tablet mode)
