HP Stream 11.6
REVIEW

HP Stream 11.6

The HP Stream 11 aims to be a cloud-focused laptop, much like a Chromebook, but with the added utility of Windows 8. It's a rock-bottom budget laptop, so don't get your hopes up, but the battery life is impressive.

Samsung Chromebook 2 (11.6-inch, Intel Celeron)
REVIEW

Samsung Chromebook 2 ( 11.6-inch, Intel Celeron)

Samsung keeps the nice-looking design of its previous 11.6-inch Chromebook 2 while making it a little more durable and puts live support help just a click away, making it a noteworthy update to the company's Chrome-computing lineup.

Lenovo N20 Chromebook
REVIEW

Lenovo N20 Chromebook

Lenovo's N20p is a long-lasting touchscreen Chromebook with a design on the sharper side of budget, but its semi-hybrid hinge feels like a half measure.

Apple MacBook Air (11-inch, 128GB)
REVIEW

Apple MacBook Air ( 11-inch, 128GB)

Apple’s 11-inch Air gets a CPU speed bump and a decent price cut over the already excellent 2013 version. If you have a recent model there's no need to upgrade, but for anyone else, it's now a better deal than ever.

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

Asus Zenbook UX301LA-DH71T
REVIEW

Asus Zenbook UX301LA-DH71T

Asus was one of the first PC makers to go ultra-thin with its Zenbook line. That latest UX301 version packs in nearly every high-end spec you'd want, but it's priced out of reach for most, and lacks an all-day battery.

Kirabook 13-i7s-touch Ultrabook
REVIEW

Kirabook 13-i7s-touch Ultrabook

The design of Toshiba's high-end Kirabook hasn't changed since last year, but it has aged gracefully. The components get an update and the battery life gets a big boost, making this an all-around excellent, but expensive, ultrabook.
