MacBook Air 13
Apple's latest Airs look the same, but have improved graphics and -- most importantly -- massively better battery life. Just for that huge battery boost alone, the Air remains an excellent go-to laptop.

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.
