    The one I'm using now is an old MacBook Air. I am pretty satisfied with the touchpad but he is always annoying me with the updates.
    And Chrome doesn't like my old OS.
    And, too heavy(still), too big and not tough enough.
    I am looking for smaller, lighter Windows laptops with enough USB plugs, Wins are better at old games. Win7 is better if possible, but I think I can still find a way to install Win7 for a Win10 PC.

    Comparing the Panasonic Let's note and Vaio S11 now. But can't give up the others. Looking for something <13 inches.
    I'm planning to get a new laptop after MS finish the free Win10 update.

    How many USB plugs do you need? And what do you generally use your laptop for? If you're a PC gamer, or use intensive software, it will be a different answer to if you just use it for general browsing

    At least 2. One for mouse and another for real USB. I know now looking for something with 3 plugs is difficult.
    I play old(sometimes from last century) games and many of them only have windows ver. However they don't take up lots of CPU and I don't really care about the pixels...etc.
    And hope the battery could stand longer. My mac can only hold for 4 or 5 hours.

    Have you considered a USB hub so you have more flexibility from that side?
