How we score

The Engadget Score is a unique ranking of products based on extensive independent research and analysis by our expert editorial and research teams. The Global Score is arrived at only after curating hundreds, sometimes thousands of weighted data points (such as critic and user reviews).

Engadget Summary

It's not the most powerful, or the most expandable laptop in the world -- but it doesn't need to be. Every computer has its tradeoffs, and the 13-inch Air's balance of performance, price, size, battery life, and build quality makes it our hands-down top pick in laptops. Small wonder computer makers everywhere are racing to catch up.
