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.

The MacBook Air 11-inch is a wonderful commuter laptop, and it should be on your short list if you're constantly on the move.

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

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

Asus Chromebook Flip (C100PA-DB02), on the other hand, delivers a stunning, lightweight convertible design, excellent performance, and impressive battery life for under $300.
