Great computing starts with Intel inside.
Apple’s superiority in ultraportable notebooks is now even stronger than before, because the new MacBook Air offers an unbeatable combination of portability and power.
The much loved MacBook Air lightness is back along with a processor that makes it more than equal to its full-sized cousins.
It does run fairly hot, but for those needing serious graphical power in a slender frame this ultrabook is a fine option…
The updated Alienware M11X is an unusually small and powerful ultraportable that is definitely up the task of running modern games.
The terms “gaming notebook” and “affordable” don’t usually go together, and this is a rare case where they genuinely do.
If storage is a major concern, then the Samsung RC530-S0EAU is sure to please as it has 1,000GB of storage to play with.
While not as directly powerful as the Acer Aspire Timeline Ultra M3, the superior build quality and lower weight give it a competitive edge.
The Samsung Series 5 550P5C-S02AU is a surprisingly beefy all-rounder given the price and for modern gaming it has a lot to offer.
The specs of this allrounder are definitely high-end, but it’s still a bit more expensive than most alternatives.
With specs comparable to currently available Ultrabooks and a weight of merely 1.12kg, the Toshiba Z830 shows that Toshiba understands this new category of notebook.
No more than $1000
