3 executive-class laptops: Beauty that's more than skin deep

 

The newest ultraslim Windows notebooks back up their good looks with power and affordability.

Beautiful design, small size and weight, leatherette wrist rest, good balance between battery life and performance

Expensive, limited ports, no SD card slot, battery and memory inaccessible
