At a Glance

This quietly elegant executive notebook is small, slim, sturdy and a dream to use. It's expensive, and its battery life is short, but it's one of the best business-travel companions we've seen.

Price when rated: $1461
Lowest price: $1,650.00 via antonline.com


  • Exceptionally thin, light, and strong
  • Above-average performance
  • Terrific keyboard and pointing devices
  • Fast battery charging


  • Short battery life (and you can't swap in a fresh one)
  • Just one USB 3.0, one USB 2.0 (and you'll need one for ethernet)
