What happened to 13" Laptops?

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

I've been doing some shopping to replace my slightly aging Acer Aspire E5 with a 5200u, but I can't seem to find a single 13" laptop with decent specs in the $500 range. My 5200u still runs decent enough but I'm tired of lugging around a bulky 15" laptop. There are dozens of 15.6" laptops with an i5 8250u and an MX150 for very reasonable prices considering the amount of value per dollar, yet the only 13" laptops I can find are things like the HP Spectre and Dell XPS 13" that run at least $900 for similair specs. (7200u or 8250u). Does anybody know of a laptop with decent specs (not a celeron or pentium) in an ultrabook form factor? Open to Ryzen laptops as well.

$500-$700. Can't seem to find any for that price except for the Surface Laptop with 4 gigs of ram :(
