Other notebook PCs with a heavier weight that you might want to look at include the Lenovo ThinkPad X240 (1.4kg).

There are a number of other portable PCs that have an HDD storage media currently available that you might want to look at including the HP 8470p which is cheaper.

We compared this laptop to all the other 1.7GHz processor clock speed notebook PCs and we think cheaper notebook PCs such as the Lenovo X1 Carbon (£1,191.93), and the HP EliteBook Folio 1040 is also worth considering.

If this Lenovo portable PC processor clock speed is not fast enough for you then you might want to consider the Lenovo X1 Carbon (2GHz and cheaper).
