Processor Also known as the CPU (Central Processing Unit), the processor is responsible for running commands and handling data. Processors come in different speeds and may have two or more cores (ex. dual-core), which let you more quickly process multiple complex tasks.
Memory (GB) Also known as RAM, memory is a temporary storage area for data. Its size is an important factor for performance. We recommend at least 4GB of memory, or 8GB if you plan to run several large applications at the same time.
Storage (GB) The amount of storage, a permanent area for the operating system, programs and data such as documents, music, and media files. Storage can be a hard drive, an SSD (solid state drive), or hybrid drive.
Video memory (MB) The amount of dedicated memory built into a graphics adapter. Most models have integrated graphics, which have no dedicated memory but are still suitable for most applications, including photo editing and watching movies. Others have discrete graphic adapters, which typically have 256 MB or more video memory, to deliver smoother and more realistic graphics for 3D games.
Video memory (MB)
Blu-ray or DVD Has either a Blu-Ray drive (B), which lets you watch Blu-Ray movies and read/write to CDs and DVDs, or a DVD drive (D), which lets you read/write to CDs and DVDs.
Blu-ray or DVD
Memory-card reader At least one flash memory-card slot (CF, SD, XD, MS, etc.)
Built-in webcam A built-in webcam for videoconferencing.
Multitouch touchpad The touchpad supports use of multiple-finger gestures to zoom and scroll.
Wi-Fi The type of built-in 802.11 wireless networking supported. Computers with 802.11n also support 802.11g routers. Some models with 802.11n also support the 5GHz "high band," a standard suitable for apartments and other crowded areas. 802.11ac is the newest, fastest type.
WiMAX One of the standards used by cell phone service providers that they call "4G". Based on the IEEE 802.16e wireless standard, mobile WiMAX is a wireless broadband Internet connection like Wi-Fi, with comparable data speeds. But its range is much greater, measured in miles rather than feet, which in theory should provide continuous broadband coverage over greater distances. If supported you usually have to sign up with a service provider and pay an extra fee.
USB sleep and charge Unlike standard USB ports that power off when the computer is turned off or put to sleep, sleep and charge USB ports remain powered on when in sleep mode. They can be used to charge electronic devices such as smartphones and tablets.
After checking out Apple Air, Lenovo Yoga, I decided to go with ACER S7 13.3 inch with Intel i7 Core (4th gen - Haswell), 8G memory, and 256G SSD. It is pricey but you get what you pay for. <br />It has faster performance than apple with touch screen, and battery last much longer than Lenovo. I also had serious concern with Lenovo's ultra books getting very (dangerously)hot. My experience with S7 so far has been positive. I recommend ACER to improve keyboard layout design.
