While the upcoming 12-inch MacBook has all the buzz, this 13-inch system gets a handful of updates to remain a top choice for combining power and portability.
The HP Envy 4520 is a capable all-in-one that combines a printer, copier and scanner with two ink delivery choices designed to ease back on expensive ink refills.
Along with 14- and 15-inch models, the revamped Envy line highlights a rare new 17-inch laptop.
This high-design Chrome OS system can cost as much as a premium laptop, and takes aim at small businesses and big IT departments.
The Toshiba Kirabook is still a worthwhile high-end Windows alternative to a Retina MacBook Pro, but it could use a little of that Apple secret sauce for its touchpad.
While still a great all-around useful laptop, the 13-inch MacBook Air is stuck with a lower-res display and a design that's no longer cutting-edge.
Taking a second look at the new XPS 13, this lower-end version costs less and has better battery life, but isn't as tightly designed.
This 23-inch all-in-one is built for entertainment, offering great speakers and a striking look. But the glossy, reflective display throws a wrench in the works.

This new Dell XPS 13 is the first great laptop of 2015, but it owes that title more to a smart design revamp than Intel's new processors.
The Lenovo Yoga Tablet 2 Pro's design is great for at-home use and the built-in projector is handy for watching video or making presentations, but the UI is too stripped down.
