Who makes it: Acer
What it costs: $1,399
Why we like it: It's nice to see a Windows PC maker finally step up the game against Apple's stylish MacBook lineup. Although it remains a touch pricey, the 13.3-inch model aims to please with a full 1080p HD Gorilla Glass touchscreen panel, 128GB solid-state flash storage and up to 12 hours of battery life. Less than half an inch thick and weighing just 2.86 pounds, the all-aluminum unibody design no doubt will have some mistaking it for a MacBook Air.
