Five Sexy And Stunning Laptops!

Laptops are slimming down and getting more stylish all the time. Though performance and features are still critical when choosing a laptop, style and design are becoming big factors in the equation.

Take, for example, Apple's approach: The MacBook 13-inch and the MacBook Pro 15-inch are sexy first—productivity is secondary. Even Bill Gates is admittedly fond of Steve Job's "intuitive taste, both for people and products."

Here are five recent stunners:

Apple MacBook Pro 15-inch LEDApple MacBook Pro
This laptop exemplifies sexiness with its use of aluminum metals, harvesting a 1-inch thick frame. It is well known for dual-booting both Windows and Macintosh operating systems, and the latest Intel components will make difficult tasks look like a breeze.

The SZ series has been integrating an optical drive and using standard voltage processors and discrete graphics for as long as anyone. And it's able to do all of this and keep the weight under 4-pounds. The carbon fiber housing and 1-inch chassis makes it an absolute delight to carry.


Toshiba Portégé R500 SeriesToshiba Portege
If you're a fan of the Portégé R200, you'll love its successor. It's two years in the making, but Toshiba manages to squeeze in a 7mm optical drive into an incredibly light, 2.4-pound frame. Best of all, it's only ¾ of an inch thick.

Dell XPS M1330Dell XPS
This is a design achievement for Dell, because it takes all the best things in the ultraportable industry and puts it into a 4-pound beauty.


Apple MacBook 13-inch (Core 2 Duo T7200)Apple MacBook
If you held off purchasing an Apple MacBook, now's the perfect time to buy one. It recently received an Intel processor upgrade, bigger hard drive, and more memory. It has as much power and features as its MacBook Pro brethren, but in a smaller yet just as sleek design.
