Well, there has been a lot of confusion regarding all these technology terms. Myriad of such terms have come up and they’ve literally confused us so much. Don’t they?
Strange thing is that they sometimes look like contradicting themselves. The terms ultra-portables and mini-notebooks sometimes get tough to differentiate between. Don’t they?
Well, here is my take on those terms..
Subnotebook: very small in size when compared to a normal notebook. Max 8.9″ screen size. Devices like HP 2133 live in this category. They do not posses a touch screen
Ultra portable notebook: little larger than Subnotebook but still smaller than the normal laptops. Devices having 10-12″ screens reside in this category and they do not posses digitizers(either soft or hard). Example: Lenovo U110. Again, they don’t posses the touch screen
