Apple MacBook Air (13-inch, 128GB)

If you own a MacBook Air from the past couple of years there's really no need to upgrade, but a small spec bump and minor price cut make the most-current Air even more attractive.

Apple MacBook Pro with Retina Display (2013, 13-inch screen)

There are other high-res laptops out there, but this year’s more powerful and affordable 13-inch Retina MacBook Pro is one of the best of the bunch, and makes a compelling case for upgrading from the 13-inch Air.

Apple MacBook Air (13-inch, 2013)

Apple MacBook Pro (13-inch, Summer 2012)

While the 13-inch MacBook Pro remains a well-built laptop, it's fallen behind the MacBook Air and Retina Display MacBook Pro in design, lacks higher-end upgrades, and feels too expensive compared with the competition.

Samsung Series 5 Ultra (13-inch) NP530U3B - 500GB HDD

Samsung's finally made an affordable ultrabook, and the 13-inch Series 5 Ultra is a well-priced and far slimmer product than its 14-inch cousin.

You also might want to wait a few weeks for Intel's latest processors to arrive.

Apple MacBook Pro Fall 2011 (2.8GHz Core i7, 13-inch)

A MacBook Pro is a significant investment, especially when adding in optional upgrades. Cost aside, there's not a better choice (there are, however, some close ties) for an all-around powerhouse that will work in the home, the office, and in between.
