The new MacBook Air is equipped with Intel core i5 or i7 processor, which makes it 2.5 times faster than its predecessor. Equipped with backlit keyboard buttons for comfortable typing experience and innovative thunderbolt technology which allows you faster data transfer from its single port.

3. Samsung Galaxy Nexus

Samsung Galaxy Nexus was one of the most awaited smartphones from Samsung. Riding on the repo of the android OS, this featured the latest android version “Ice Cream Sandwich”. It features a 4.65 inches super AMOLED screen and a 1.23 GHz dual core processor. It has a 5 mega pixel camera with LED flash and a 1.3 mega pixel front camera for video calling. It also offers full HD video recording of about 1080p. It comes in two models of 16 GB and 32 GB internal memory without any extra memory card slot. The phone is powered by a 1750 mAh battery. The phone is made in teardrop shape, but it lacks the beauty which its contenders like Apple’s iPhone 4S and Motorola’s Droid posses.
