ATIV Book 9 Plus Ultrabook

Who makes it: Samsung

What it costs: $1,400

Why we like it: Let us count the ways. It's a super-thin ultrabook that sports best-in-class looks and powerful processing power. With a 3,200 by 1,800 high-resolution touchscreen display, 4 gigabytes of memory and a 128-gigabyte hard drive, the ATIV 9 Plus is no slouch on specs. And with a feature called SideSync for people who also own Galaxy smartphones, you can link the two. Use the smaller device as a second screen while you compose e-mails, texts and open applications using the ATIV 9 Plus's keyboard and mousepad, or replicate the phone's screen on the laptop. If you're looking for an alternative to Apple's MacBook Air, then this is the Windows OS ultraportable for you.
