    Apple's follow-up to the early 2008 debut of the ultraportable features faster RAM, more storage (a 128GB solid-state drive, double the capacity of the original SSD option), and improved graphics. Instead of an integrated Intel GMA X3100, the Air now features an Nvidia GeForce 9400 graphics processor (though it still shares memory with the system RAM).

    MSRP: $2,499

    Pros

    • Greatly improved graphics power
    • Full-size keyboard
    • Weighs three pounds
    • Bright display

    Cons

    • Single USB port
    • No video adapters in box

    • Unswappable battery
