I'm going to be traveling for a part of this upcomng summer, but I'll still be doing some design work as I go.  I'd like to find a smaller, more lightweight laptop to take with me that will accoodate Indesign.  Any suggestions?

One important thing: if you want to use Creative Cloud, do NOT consider the Microsoft Surface Pro X. It cannot run most of the apps, because it won't run 64-bit apps.

Mac user friends of mine who do a lot of travelling swear by their MacBook Airs. I had a chance to test InDesign 2020 on a five-year-old MacBook Air and was pleasantly surprised by the experience.

On the Windows side of things take a look at the HP Spectre X360 or the Dell XPS13.
