At A Glance

Dell's Adamo goes toe-to-toe with the MacBook Air. While it offers more ports and better battery life, you're paying for it.

Looking to watch some videos after meetings? Between the big screen and office performance, this might work for you.

Pricey but worth it, the HP EliteBook 2530P lives up to its name with extras not ordinarily found on an ultraportable.

Weighing less than 5 pounds and jazzed up with a color lid and other features, this is a light and stylish portable.
