  • The latest MacBook Air 11-inch is Apple's smallest and least expensive laptop, with good performance and more than 11 hours of battery power.


  • While the screen could be sharper, the updated 11-inch MacBook Air is a very light ultraportable that offers great performance and battery life for the price.


  • Available at the same price as last year, the new 11-inch MacBook Air has the same super-fast storage as before, and around 10 percent increase in processor performance. Gaming performance was always borderline, and now we find it no better and even fractionally slower. But overall battery runtime increased by almost a third in our tests, a very useful upgrade on the already very decent 10 hour-plus battery life of the previous generation.


  • The Dell Chromebook 11 is an affordable 11-inch Chrome OS laptop that offers excellent battery life, good overall performance, and a durable construction.


  • The Dell Chromebook 11 with Core i3 processor delivers speedy performance and lasts all day on a charge.


  • The Dell Chromebook 11 Touch is more rugged and less expensive than before, but it sacrifices some performance that made the old Dell Chromebook 11 great.


  • The Getac V110 is a well-made ruggedized laptop with a lightweight design, best-in-class durability, and strong performance in testing. Bonus: It's also more affordable than the competition.


  • The fully rugged Getac V110 convertible can take a beating and delivers a powerful Core i5 punch in a portable design.


  • The affordable Dell Chromebook 11 Touch has a touch screen and a beefy, rugged design making it a good choice for classrooms.


  • The Dell Chromebook 11 with Core i3 processor delivers speedy performance and lasts all day on a charge.


  • The Dell Chromebook 11 Touch is more rugged and less expensive than before, but it sacrifices some performance that made the old Dell Chromebook 11 great.


  • Asus' TP200SA packs a ton of value into its 2-in-1 with a colorful, rotating display and almost 11 hours of battery life, all for just $349.


  • The Asus Flip TP200SA is a wonderful budget notebook with an unforgivably slow processor.
