It’s hard to go wrong with the latest version of Apple’s MacBook Air. Both the 13-inch and 11-inch models have updated Intel Core i5 processors and excellent battery life. For a Windows version of something similar, check out Samsung’s expensive 13-inch Ativ Book 9 Plus , which has a better-than HD screen. The Lenovo IdeaPad Yoga 2 Pro has a similar higher-res display and a flexible hinge that converts into a tablet, for less than $1,000. A very inexpensive option that’s still usable for online surfing and sharing is the 14-inch HP Chromebook 14 , which runs the Chrome OS from Google.
