Samsung 9 Series Laptop

1 of 16

Move over, 13-inch MacBook Air—the Samsung 9 series laptop is just as thin and a tad lighter (2.89 pounds), and it has a more distinctive wavy design (inspired by sports cars). Spec-wise, it’s state of the art, with a superfast i5 Core processor, HDMI outs (for showing your vacation photos on an HDTV), and two 1.5-watt speakers with a subwoofer. Battery life is 6.5 hours, but the real edge over the MacBook Air is the backlit keyboard, so you can work easily even when the airplane cabin lights are off. ($1,599; samsungusa.com)
