Laptops get thinner and lighter by the day. If it's time to upgrade your Windows laptop and you're hunting for something smaller than what you're currently lugging around, check out CRN's comparison between the two current leading lightweights: the 2.7-pound Dell XPS Touch and the 3.34-pound Microsoft Surface Book.
CRN gets into the details of processing power, graphics, battery life, and other specs, so we won't. The short version is that they're both sleek Windows machines that retail for about $1,700, and they both have features worth recommending. If you're trying to reduce weight, go for the Dell. If you want a laptop that converts to a tablet, choose the Microsoft. And if you want help making sure they work well on your network, choose Xantrion.
