Here are a couple of MacBook Air Laptops that I am keeping an eye on…

The Samsung Series 9 Laptop

Core i5 2537M Processor, 4GB Ram, 128 GB SSD Drive, and 7 Hour Battery, check out the full specs here.

“Duralumin, the New Definition of Lightweight

The Series 9 is designed with mobility in mind, thanks to dramatic duralumin enclosure complete with arching curves and remarkable durability. Duralumin is twice the strength of aluminum, despite being light in weight. Elegant from every angle, the Series 9 also includes backlit keyboard, brilliant LCD display screen and a large multi-touch clickpad. It’s a minimalist look that is both simple and sophisticated.”

The Asus Zenbook

With the choice of an Intel Core i5 or Core i7 processor, 128 GB or 256 GB SD Drive, USB 3.0, Hi-Fi audio, and Bluetooth 4.0, check out the full specs here.

“Incredible Beauty

The ZENBOOK™ uses a precision-crafted design measuring only 3mm at the front and 9mm at the rear. The form features razor thin edges and a curved center section, which is both practical and attractive – while accommodating the powerful computing components within, this design also looks totally unique. It embodies beauty and strength in complete balance and harmony. “

Both are great laptops, but I think the ASUS has the upper edge, as it has more options and newer functionality. Which one would you buy?
