Apple, $1449-$1899, apple.com
★★★★ Apple is renowned for its stylish design and the Macbook Air cements that reputation. The Air delivers a 13.3-inch Led-backlit screen with a processor as fast as the 1.8GHZ second-generation Intel Core i7 processor and yet it is still just 1.7cm at its thickest and weighs only 1.35kg. It has a multi-touch trackpad and Intel’s HD Graphics 3000 card onboard for added graphical grunt. Its memory is expandable to 8GB and users can choose a solid-state hard drive up to 256GB. It has two USB ports, a built-in webcam, SDXC slot plus wi-fi and Bluetooth. All input is via its USB, SD or Thunderbolt ports.
