Macbook Air [$999]
The Macbook Air has come a long way, baby. When this device was first unveiled they bragged about how it could fit inside a manila envelope. One reporter famously disposed of his device in a stack of newspapers to the recycling bin. The device is still thin, but the battery life and performance has soared over the past 4 years. Solid state hard drives make it quiet, you can go an almost entire day without plugging it in and it fits into a shoulder bag, purse, or under your arm. For anyone on the go, this is a stylish and sensible device.
