If you're not wedded to Apple's operating system, Dell's notebook is the way to go, but Mac fans who value endurance above all else will find the new 13-inch Air the best there is.

It might not be of huge interest to you if you're using a 2012 or newer model, but if you're hanging on to that older MacBook Pro with an optical drive, it's a worthy upgrade.

It has a great screen, looks good and delivers in every way that matters.

The Asus Zenbook UX305FA-ASM1 may be extremely thin and feather-light, but an ultraportable laptop can't get by on those aspects alone.

The HD Graphics 5300 core will only be able to handle low-end titles.
