This week we received a laptop recommendation request from the Philippines. The person wants a 13-inch laptop under $700 for general office use like surfing the web and answering emails. Portability, performance and look are important factors!

Our Laptop Recommendation
This is my favorite laptop category! Not because they are the most powerful on the market, but because they deliver so much value for the great majority of users. At that price range, you get a slim, quality notebook with a great screen, strong audio and a nice look!
For a 13-inch between $500 and $700, you have quite a lot of choices, but mine would be one of these: The HP Envy 13, the Acer Aspire S13 or the Asus ZenBook UX360CA. They are all great slim quality laptops that will be perfect for any office work and for watching a movie. They’ll probably still be powerful enough in a few years, so it’s a good investment.
Since I really like its look and quality, I also have to suggest the Lenovo 510s. It’s a 14-inch – but still very portable and slim – with a great look a quality built. It has a slower hard drive than the others I suggested, but is also cheaper.
These four laptops are definitively a good purchase and you won’t be disappointed with their look, portability and quality.
I hope that helps, write back if you have any other question,
