The Best Laptops for Mummy Bloggers

The following is a guest post: 

In my hectic life as a mum and a writer, I want a laptop that is both portable and fashionable, so that I can carry it with me on the busiest days. Here are my three favourite laptops to write on the go– you can easily find them online from hundreds of sellers:
The Top 3
1. Samsung Chromebook: Advertised as the laptop to help tackle everyday tasks faster and easier, everything on this laptop runs online through Chrome so I can use Google Docs for writing and Google Hangouts to video call friends and family. The Chromebook starts up in seconds and is so lightweight I can carry it around in my purse to use whenever I get a spare moment.
2. Macbook Air: Always pushing the edge of technology and style, there’s the Macbook Air. Incredibly thin and lightweight, this laptop comes standard with the impressive Mountain Lion operating system and is packed with useful tools to help keep every aspect of my life organized.
3. Acer Aspire S3 Ultrabook: At only 1.3 cm thick, I can slip it into my bag when I’m rushing out the door. It connects instantly to the web and has a six-hour continuous use battery, so nothing’s holding me back from getting things done.

The Verdict
While all of these laptops respond to a mummy blogger’s needs in one way or another, each one of them has different strengths and weaknesses. And it would certainly be wrong to put them all on the same level: the Macbook Air’s quality and overall performance is undoubtedly superior, but this means even the cheaper 11-inch version starts at £849. The Aspire S3 is instead a rather good compromise between quality and affordability, with a more affordable £450 as starting price. Finally, the Chromebook is the way to go if you’re looking to save some money and you’re not expecting the most performing machine: £229 for a very portable laptop is a bargain few mummy bloggers could resist!
