Samsung Series 7
Released December, 2011
The Pros:$500 less than the closest equivalent MacBook Pro. Has minimal bezel and a clean center hinge. The keys are very distinctive and the white sides glow with back-lighting.
The Cons:Only 2 screen size options (14, 15.6") may not be what people are looking for.
