Toshiba KIRAbook 13 i7s1 Touch

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.

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.

Chromebook 13
REVIEW

Chromebook 13 ( CB5-311-T677)

One of the nicer-looking and better-performing Chrome OS systems, the 13-inch Acer Chromebook adds some zip by ditching Intel for an Nvidia processor, but also hits a few issues with popular Chrome apps.

Lenovo Yoga 2 13
REVIEW

Lenovo Yoga 2 13 ( Core i5 1.60GHz, black)

If you can't quite afford the Yoga 2 Pro but still want a full-time laptop and a part-time tablet, the 13-inch Lenovo Yoga 2 is an excellent choice.

Apple MacBook Air
REVIEW

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.
