LG gram 14
LG takes on the major premium laptop players with the expensive Gram 14. It's light and highly portable, but suffers from some first-gen missteps.
Microsoft Surface Book ( 512GB, Core i7, 16GB, dGPU)
While it's not nearly as refined as the new fourth-gen Surface Pro, Microsoft's Surface Book is a powerful, feature-filled premium hybrid that doesn't forget it's a laptop first.
Acer Switch 10 E ( 64GB SSD, Purple)
Despite extra storage space and a pleasing design, the Acer Switch 10 E suffers from a low-budget feel.
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 Yoga 3 14 ( black)
With better battery life and performance than the Yoga 3 Pro (not to mention a lower price), the Yoga 3 14 is one of the best hybrid deals around.
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.
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 ( 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.
Apple MacBook ( 2015)
If you can live with its limitations, the new 12-inch MacBook delivers a groundbreaking design that points the way to the next chapter in laptops.
Apple MacBook Pro with Retina display 2015 ( 13-inch, 128GB)
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.
