Apple's second shot at a 13-inch notebook with a high-resolution Retina display, this 2013 MacBook Pro model slims down just slightly from its predecessor while dropping a few of its specs to help drop its price to something nearer to the MacBook Air.

Description

The Toshiba Kirabook is a premium Windows 8 notebook featuring a high-res 13.3-inch display with touchscreen options, a magnesium-alloy contruction, and Harman/Kardon speakers plus DTS Studio Sound processing. The Kirabook comes with a 256GB SSD, 8GB or RAM, and up to a 3rd generation Intel Core i7 processor.

The Samsung ATIV Book 9 Plus offers a 13.3-inch 3200 x 1800 qHD+ multi-touch display and is powered by Intel's Core i5 and i7 ULT Haswell processors (depending on the model), which offer a full 12 hours of battery life. It also supports up to 8GB of RAM, Intel HD Graphics 4400, a 256GB SSD, and is 13.6mm at its thickest point.

The Yoga 2 Pro is continues Lenovo's interest in nontraditional laptop designs for Windows 8, but seriously ups its ante with a high-resolution display.
