What are the standard laptop sizes?

The size of laptops varies greatly. The smallest laptops are known as netbooks, while the largest are known as desktop replacement laptops. In between these two extremes are a variety of sizes and styles. Here’s a quick overview of the most common laptop sizes:

Netbook: Netbooks are small laptops that usually weigh less than three pounds and measure about 10 inches wide by 7 inches deep by 1 inch thick. Netbooks typically have smaller screens than standard laptops — about 8 inches wide — but they also have touchscreens and often come with mobile broadband service plans so you can connect to the Internet anywhere you can find Wi-Fi.

Ultrabook: Ultrabooks are slim, lightweight laptops that share many features with netbooks but tend to offer longer battery life, faster performance and better overall design. Most ultrabooks sell for between $500 and $1,000, although some models cost more than $1,000.

Convertible laptop: Convertible laptops have hinges that allow you to fold back part of their display to use as a tablet — similar to what you can do with Microsoft’s Surface Pro tablet line. Most convertibles cost between $500 and $1,000 or more and weigh less than three pounds when closed.
