    "Good but not fantastic. A plus is that it's lightweight and small so travels well. It's not lightning fast though, so lag has to be considered. All in all though, worth the money for the convenience and for those on a budget."

    "I'm kind of on the fence with this one. Look, HP has been around for ages and I'm sure we've all seen or had one by now. While there's nothing fundamentally wrong with this, I do say I kind of like Dell, ASUS and so on for my laptop choices."


The laptop computer considered by many to be the first one was the Osborne 1? Adam Osborne, an ex-book publisher, founded Osborne Computer Corp. The company then produced it in 1981. The device weighed 24 pounds and cost $1795. It had a five-inch screen, modem port, two 5 1/4 floppy drives. It also included a collection of bundled software programs and a battery pack. It was not a commercial success for the company. It did pave the way for succeeding laptops and further research to happen though. The first laptop that resembled laptops of today was the TRS-80 Model 100 which came out in 1983. The late 1980s saw a lot of releases from Apple, Compaq, and Zenith Data Systems. The early 1990s saw the release of IBM's legendary ThinkPad line of laptops.

The rest is, as they say, history. Laptops nowadays aren't as revolutionary as it once was. That is not exactly a bad thing since laptops have reached optimal reliability. The best 13-inch laptops are what people consider the best ones. A good combination of portability and power. Laptops used for office work was easy and convenient. Laptops for programming was also popular at the time. Most laptop makers push the envelope of laptop innovation to stand out from the rest. Some are releasing the best budget 13-inch laptops to increase market share. Others focus on putting as much power as possible in as small a package as possible. Allowing for the best 13-inch gaming laptops to arrive in the market. No matter what you need a laptop for, chances are, there is one that will fit your needs.

    "The 2017 Dell Inspiron 13 5358 Flagship Laptop is a nice computer but I think the screen is way too small. I guess if you like a small screen it would be fine, but it's too small for my use."

    "I was on the verge of buying this, but the price is a hard one to overcome and I decided not to. Well 3 days later I changed my mind and bought it. I have had it for a week already. The way I use a labtop--college, emails, download videos. I can't see much of a difference for over $1300. I love the pen--although it could get lost, and love the swivel feature, but other than that, I can't find a reason to spend this much on a laptop."

    "I thought this was a great idea because of the versatility and price. However, I do find the screen a bit too small for my needs and the wifi connection seems to keep failing. I do not have problems with any other devices, just this laptop. If not for these inconveniences, I would rate it much higher as it has a good chip and touch screen with a great display resolution."

    "I got this result while searching for 13 inch laptops; obviously the screen is almost 3 inches larger than I expected, and is therefore too big. I need something more compact. That said, this is still a decent find, good for personal use, and Acers usually last at least two years."

    "I think Lenovo computers, of all kinds, are a very good value. They are solid machines which is why they have a low income program to sell them to students for $100. These don't go wrong and have issues. The ThinkPad is a good value and will hold up for quite a long time. Also, big plus, it doesn't use windows 10!"
