  • 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.


  • - If you’ve got the money it’s perfect for business trips.
    - We played back a selection of high definition trailers and colours are bold and eye catching, with bright whites and excellent contrast.
    - With a beautifully crafted unibody design, the Air is stunning and a true design marvel, the aluminium lid feels strong, yet the whole device measures 0.3cm at the slimmest point.


  • 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.


  • The Asus Chromebook Flip (C100PA-DB02) blends the best elements from other designs into a single Chrome-based laptop with a slick, convertible form factor, fast performance, all-day battery life, and an affordable price.


  • A Chromebook that manages to add hybrid features without driving up the price, the Asus Flip C100 trades speed for long battery life.


  • Spending between $200 and $300 on a Chromebook usually gets you a hunk of plastic that’s decent enough at running a web browser, editing Google Docs, watching Netflix, and playing Spotify. Asus is looking to upend expectations with its new Chromebook Flip, a device that feels more premium than its price lets on — it’s metal — and one that lets you flip its screen around into various modes that make the whole experience feel more unique than your everyday clamshell laptop.


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


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


  • 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.
