Select YOUR best ultra-mobile PC

Updated on 18 April 2019 by

There’s no best ultra mobile PC, just the best ultra mobile PC for YOU.

Despite tech websites telling you what THEY think is the best solution for your needs, it’s still up to you to know what you want and to sort through all those lists to see if a product matches your requirements. Now, instead of starting with someone else’s top 10 you can make your own.

The product overview page on the UMPCPortal product database has always been interactive; Allowing you to type a search term, sort by clicking on the column headers and choosing a form factor but now there are new features that will help you make your top-list even tighter. Choose your desired screen size or resolution, the operating system and even choose a CPU family. If you want to see all the new Broadwell-architecture mobile PCs, just select it via the CPU Family selector.

The improved selection features are one of a big number of changes that have been made to the site. We’ve started to integrate benchmark scores and have added comparison pages for popular head-to-heads. You can click on a CPU in the product specifications to find devices running the same processor, we’ve added more product images and there’s a lot of work that’s gone on in the background to help speed things up.

We’ve also pared-down the database and now only include ultra mobile devices that weigh 1300 grams / 2.8 pounds or less.

UMPCPortal has been tracking ultra-mobile PCs since 2006 and it’s still the best site for ultra-mobile PC analysis. We think that’s worth a moment of your time!

Enjoy the UMPCPortal product chooser and the gems that lie within!

    A much required improvement over the years, if you don´t mind me saying so, Chippy.

    However, it would be even better if you managed to introduce the “Minimum” option. That is, I want a 10.1″ (or larger) with a 1920x1080p (or better) resolution, for example. As it is, it forces us to do multiple searches with every possible combination we could accept, which is time consuming.

    I forgot to say that it´s also missing a “release date” sort order, since one of the main points of using site is being able to easily find the new products on the market, not keep discarding old products that we keep finding in those searches, and never had any interest in.


  3. Chippy says:

    Yes. This has been on the list for sooooo long!
    I have the ability to add date (in database), min and max. I don’t want to clutter the UI though so i’ll have a think about how best to implement it. The list is sorted by newest-first.

  4. Chippy says:

    Date sorting has now been added (right column) but is based on the date we added the product to the DB, not the launch date.
    In the Screen Size column there is now an indication of the number of products for each screen size in the pulldown list.

  5. Chippy says:

    Added a battery capacity column.

  6. John D. says:

    Love the new list.

    Is there a chance that we could get an “active stylus” option? It can really be a differentiator for me.


  7. Rob Halligan says:

    It’s has Touch with Digitizer filter. then under the Touch Technology tab.

  8. Chippy says:

    Just added live pricing (USA)

    John. I’m looking at ‘digitizer’ right now.

  9. Chippy says:

    A touch technology selector has been added. Includes ‘no touch’ and ‘touch with digitizer.’


  10. John D says:

    Chippy, you are amazing! Thanks!

  11. Chippy says:

    If anyone has any feedback on aesthetics i’d be happy to hear it and as always, please help to share the feature over social networks/blogs etc.
    Thanks everyone.
