Apple MacBook Air (13-inch, Summer 2013)
The great battery life is a very big deal, and when you couple that with a $100 price cut on the base model, down to $1,099, the 13-inch MacBook Air is one of the most universally useful laptops you can buy.

The good: New Intel fourth-gen CPUs help the updated MacBook Air achieve amazing battery life. The multitouch trackpad is still the industry's best, and even better, the 13-inch MacBook Air now starts at $100 less than the previous model.
The bad: Newer features such as touch screens and higher-resolution displays are still missing. The ultrabook competition is catching up, in terms of design.
The bottom line: Apple keeps the latest MacBook Air updates on the inside, but greatly improved battery life and a lower starting price make up for a lack of flashy design changes.
