Samsung Series 9
When Samsung's 13-inch duralumin-covered beauty stepped onto the scene it was hard to believe we were faced with a laptop skinnier than the king of thin. Samsung's unabashed attempt to steal Apple's thunder had us drooling over its sleek lines and powerful guts: Intel Core i5 or i7 processors, up to 8GB of RAM and the choice of 128GB or 256GB SSD. Its super-speedy boot-up time had us hot under the collar, too.
