Best midsize laptops (Updated February 21, 2014 5:44 AM PST)
Midsize laptops have 14-, 15-, or 16-inch screens, although 15.6 is the most popular overall. You'll commonly see these in offices, libraries, and homes. Older models were big and bulky, but today's midsize laptops can be ultrabook-thin, while still using full-powered components.
The newly redesigned MacBook Pro with Retina Display combines an amazing screen with just enough of the MacBook Air design to feel like a new animal, and to take its place as the best of the current MacBook breed.

For those looking for something more than a feature-light ultrabook, the gamer-friendly Lenovo IdeaPad Y500 is close to brilliant, and several configurations are currently available at a deep discount -- but I can't believe it doesn't have a touch screen.
