'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. '
'Thankfully, the system is unencumbered by bloatware. '
'Thanks to a new generation of processors, the MacBook Air gets improved battery life, while maintaining its now classic thin and light metal exterior.'
'The small notebook maintains a strong repertoire of connectivity technologies. '
'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. '
'If you’ve got the money it’s perfect for business trips.'
'More ports than 12-inch MacBook. '
'Apple's buying process is very user-friendly.'
'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’s a wonderful laptop. '
'The updated 13-inch MacBook Pro packs a new fifth-generation 2.7-GHz Intel Core i5-5257U processor along with 8GB of RAM and 128GB of faster flash storage. '
'Good graphics, even faster SSD speeds. '
'It's excellent overall, and an improvement over last year's version. '
'Clear, bright, 12-inch, 2,160-by-1,440-resolution display. '
'Below-average battery life.'
'Despite its small size, the speakers in the Surface Pro 4 made an impact. '
'Asus Chromebook Flip (C100PA-DB02), on the other hand, delivers a stunning, lightweight convertible design, excellent performance, and impressive battery life for under $300. '
'The Asus Chromebook Flip C100 takes some real risks, some more successful than others, in order to provide a premium-feeling experience for only $249 (£249 in the UK; not currently available in Australia).'
'impressive build quality'
'It helps that the Chromebook Flip is one of the smallest and lightest convertible systems around, weighing 1.96 pounds and measuring 10.6 x 7.2 x 0.6 inches. '
'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 Asus UX305 is one of the finest laptops we’ve ever reviewed when value is taken into consideration. '
'If the company is smart about promotion, this could be a very successful product. '
'The display is unusually good for a Windows laptop though, using IPs-like technology that gives wide viewing angles and better colour gamut.'
'the Dell Chromebook 11 Non-Touch is ideal for any grade-school classroom or for use as an affordable, everyday laptop.'
'As an everyday laptop, though, this model falls a bit short of our expectations, especially considering the achievements of its older sibling. '
'The matte finish on the keys made them comfortable to use.'
'The new MacBook is brilliant.'
'A genuinely unique laptop for those seeking a Retina display in the most compact and light chassis around, the fact remains that the new MacBook’s many compromises mean it won’t suit everyone. '
'Impossible movie was loud and clear, even at the highest volume setting.'
'Just get ready for some sticker shock, as this system costs $1,299.'
