Sony Vaio Pro 13
A great superslim alternative to the latest MacBooks, Sony's new Pro line also includes battery-friendly Intel fourth-gen processors. Besides the 13-inch version here, there's also an excellent 11-inch version.

The good: The Sony Vaio Pro 13 weighs less than 2.4 pounds and uses a fourth-gen Intel Core i5 or i7 processor to deliver long battery life and very good everyday performance. It has an excellent 13.3-inch 1080p touch screen and is competitively priced for its features.
The bad: The Pro 13, like its competition, has a nonremovable battery (though you can add an external battery), few ports and connections, and integrated graphics only. Memory maxes out at 8GB.
The bottom line: For those who want an excellent ultraportable laptop with more than just the latest Intel processors, the Sony Vaio Pro 13 Touch is it.
