The world's most extreme laptops

Some laptops will give you a hernia, while others will fit in a coat pocket. Some cost a day's pay--others, half a year's. Here are the outliers of the notebook world.

The world's most extreme laptops next


<h2>The Most Beautiful</h2><br><br><b>Name:</b> [[xref:|MacBook Air|MacBook Air]] <br><br><b>Price:</b> $1499 and up<br><br><b>Availability:</b> Now<br><br><b>Extreme spec:</b> Droolicious<br><br><b>Reasons to love it:</b> Ever since the MacBook Air debuted in 2008, this computer has been the superhot ultraportable to beat. <br><br>The Air, featuring a sleek aluminum unibody enclosure that's just 0.76 inch at its thickest point, has a full-size backlit keyboard, multitouch gesture support, and a crisp 13.3-inch LED-backlit display. Other specs include the option of a 1.86GHz or 2.13GHz Intel Core 2 Duo processor, a 120GB hard-drive or 128GB solid-state drive, 2GB DDR3 RAM, an nVidia GeForce 9400M graphics processor, an iSight Webcam, and both Wi-Fi and Bluetooth connectivity. <br><br>On the downside, the Air is the slowest MacBook available, it has no optical drive, and it's a little stingy with USB and FireWire ports. But whenever you're out in public with this silver beauty, the Air is guaranteed to turn heads and make the other laptops jealous. <br><br>That's just my opinion, though. You might want to check out the Air's ultraslim and (almost) equally gorgeous competitors, such as the [[xref:|Samsung X360|Samsung X360]] and [[xref:|Dell Adamo|Dell Adamo]]. Hewlett Packard has also been developing a hot line of ultraportables, starting with last year's [[xref:|Voodoo Envy 133|Voodoo Envy 133]] and the new [[xref:|13- and 15-inch Envy laptops|HP Gets Apple Envy With 13- and 15-Inch Laptops]] available October 18.
