The complete list of laptops with small / thin screen bezels

The complete list of laptops with small / thin screen bezels
By Andrei Girbea , last updated on September 13, 2018

This article is a detailed list of laptops with small bezels available in stores these days. We’re constantly updating it and adding new units are they’re released.

By reducing the size of the bezels around the screens, manufacturers are able to create more compact notebooks, with an overall reduced footprint and increased screen-to-body ratio. That however makes designing such a computer more challenging, as there’s less room inside the main-chassis for all the components, battery and cooling, that’s why the list of bezel-less laptops has been rather exclusive in these last years, with only a handful of premium options.

That has however changed, and these days you can find a variety of devices with thin bezels in stores, from thin and light ultraportables and all the way up to full-size 17-inch gaming notebooks. Some have narrower bezels than others and some have big chins underneath, that’s why in this article we’ll tell you what to expect from each unit in terms of the size of their bezels, screen-to-body ratio (abbreviated STB in the following lists), hardware specs, overall weight and price.

We’ve also split the available options in a few categories: Ultraportable (classic clamshell thin-and-light notebook), Convertible (2-in-1 laptop with a touchscreen), Multimedia (all-round notebook) and Gaming (ultraportable with competent gaming abilities). We also added links to our detailed articles and reviews for each option, as well as to updated configurations and prices at the time you’re reading the article.

We’re constantly updating this list of thin-bezel laptops, adding new units as they’re released, but if you have anything to add or spot any device that should be in here and is not, please get in touch in the comments section at the end of the article.

This first section of the article covers the ultra-compact versions with screens up to 14-inch in diagonal, and in the next section we’ll cover full-size options with 15.6-inch and 17.3-inch screens.

It’s worth noting that the STB (screen-to-body) ratios above are based on the manufacturers’ official specs. However, I’m not entirely sure how they calculate those, as common math results in different numbers. As far as I know, screen-to-body ratio is calculated by dividing the screen’s area (which is about 70 square inches for a 13.3-inch 16:9 screen and about 104 square inches for a 15.6-inch 16:9 screen) to the laptop’s overall area (width x height). Something to further look into.

That’s about it for now with this list of portable and full-size laptops with small bezels and screen-to-body ratios above 80%.

Like already mentioned earlier, we’re constantly working on improving our articles, so if you have anything to add, spot any mistakes or know any laptops that should be in here and are not, please tell get in touch with us the comments section below.
