Lenovo LaVie Z 360
REVIEW

Lenovo LaVie Z 360 ( 2.40GHz 1600MHz 4MB)

The Lenovo LaVie Z is an impressive engineering feat, but unless you need the touch screen and 360-degree hinge, stick with the less-expensive, lighter, non-touch model.

REVIEW

Lenovo LaVie Z HZ550

Despite a few design quirks make it feel less than premium, the Lenovo LaVie Z can't be beat for a combination of light weight and processor power.

Apple MacBook Air 2015
REVIEW

Apple MacBook Air 2015 ( 13-inch, 128GB)

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.

Nextbook Ares 11
REVIEW

Nextbook Ares 11

Although affordable, the Nextbook Ares 11 isn't fit to be your next workstation or tablet. You'd be better off investing in an inexpensive Chromebook.

REVIEW

Samsung Ativ Book 9 ( 2015)

This very usable 12-inch laptop is a good, if expensive, tool for websurfing and casual use, but would benefit from better battery life.

Hisense Chromebook

The Hisense Chromebook offers just enough power and comfort for far less money than the competition.

Asus Transformer Book T300 Chi
REVIEW

Asus Transformer Book T300 Chi

This good-looking fanless hybrid works as a slim Windows tablet or an ultra-portable laptop, but still suffers from the same awkward marriage of base and screen as many hybrids.

Acer Chromebook 15
REVIEW

Acer Chromebook 15 ( white, 32GB)

If your one gripe about Chromebooks is the small screen sizes, the Acer Chromebook 15 is the solution and it's a very nice solution at that.
