It's excellent overall, and an improvement over last year's version.

The new MacBook is brilliant.

The biggest weakness of the quad-HD T300 Chi was its poor battery life.

The Satellite Radius 12 is definitely a system to consider if you're a photographer or videographer who's tired of lugging a 15-inch laptop, and is willing to make some compromises in order to get a 4K display in a very portable package.

With improved, category-leading performance and a solid convertible design, the Lenovo ThinkPad Yoga 12 is an easy pick as our top pick for convertible-hybrid ultraportable for business.
