Why does it need to be thin and light? Do you have muscular dystrophy? Do you have a fetish for laptops in manila envelopes?

Most storage and transport cases are designed to bulge, but not expand in the other two dimensions, and most adult men and women can effortlessly carry 10 pounds for miles without tiring or feeling unbalanced. Once a laptop is 3/4" thick, thinness provides nothing but diminishing returns and even significant disadvantages as ports vanish, RAM is soldered, and the computer is difficult to service in general. Take your average "ultrabook", now imagine how much battery life you could have if it were just a little thicker to accommodate more battery, and maybe an extra USB port. It's depressing, isn't it? Computers that suffer for fashion.

The most single most important aspect affecting portability is diagonal size.

Needing more than 1080p on a 13" screen is utterly retarded, only fags would care about that.
Even the one with WAY better screen is still $537 less.

Razer Blade Stealth. Thin, light, IGZO 4k 12.X" display touch screen, fuck it even has a metal unibody, rgb backlit keyboard, glass track pad, USB 3.1 type C Thunderbolt 3. Only shitty thing about it is it's i7 is a dual hyperthreaded instead of a true quad. Lacks a discrete GPU but at its size few care, plus it can use TB3 external desktop gpus. Normally I hate Razer but even on Linux I've used their Blade series and they seem to be well built and speced.
